how do you get your 2 year old to nap?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey mamas, I am currently cosleeping with my almost 2 year old son and loving it, but thinking I might have to change some things as #2 is coming along in 3 months. My boy is night weaned and only wakes up once or twice in the night and goes back to sleep with some cuddles, but naps have always been difficult and I usually have to nurse him to sleep and often he will wake up when I try to get out of bed. This works for now, but when my next one is born I won't be able to take those luxurious naps with my toddler in the afternoons anymore, nor may I be able to do night cuddles with the little one nursing instead. Do you have any suggestions for how to change his napping habits to be able to nap without me there with the boob in his mouth? Or ways to get him back to sleep without holding him at night?

Ds was 23 months and I was 4 months pregnant. O decided to completely. For naps we made him a snuggly spot on the couch, basically completely changed the routine instead of just taking away the boob. It has worked so far. Its been 9 months, baby is born. Ds still naps on the couch I sit closely with the baby. We co sleep at night because he still wants to be close to me.
