I was really worried about this and knock on wood this is amazingly still working for us, I can't believe how I am this lucky, but maybe will work for you too!!!
1. Noticed newborn falls asleep for nap number 2 around same time every day.
2. When he is asleep in the sling, I can lay him down in the crib with sling around him and cross my fingers that he won't wake up until toddler is asleep.
3. Toddler only naps if I sidelying nurse him so no tandem nursing options here ...so once baby is in crib, we creep into bed and try to go to sleep quickly.
4. I found that on the few occassions that baby woke up before toddler was asleep, I just had to LET IT GO...because I found myself actually angry at my toddler for not falling asleep fast enough...whats' up with that evil kind of thought? I let it go and would try for the nap later when baby was on nap number 3.
SO this has been working from day one and he is 3 months old now and I daily have at least 15-20minutes when they are both asleep for getting stuff done or taking a short nap myself...then baby usually wakes and nurses and we can go back to sleep together.
Hope that helps mama!!!!
