enjoying motherhood way more than science:
married to DH (2003) mama to DD(Nov 2008) & DS (Mar 2011)
dd1 didn't nap after age 2 and it really surprised me. We eat clean, no HFCS or dyes or dairy or caffeine or anything else I would think would contribute to sleeplessness. dd2 (22 mo) still takes naps whenever, I don't keep any schedule for any of us. Sometimes dd2 takes one big nap and one small, sometimes 2 small, sometimes one big, sometimes none or small 20 minute....
as long as the child is sleeping 14 hours in a 24 hr period, they are getting enough sleep. when dd1 quit napping, she would sleep for 14 hrs. She would nurse and get up to pee (EC) in that period, but she would stay mostly asleep. If child is under the age of 4 and getting less than 14 hrs in a 24 hr period on average, you may want to consider something in the diet is causing an imbalance, or food sensitivities also.
you are great for being able to use a wrap and getting on with it all.
