So, my 10 mo DD only goes down for naps using the Ergo. I wear her in the front, my husband wears her in the back. The problem is we are going to have baby sitters come care for her during the day so we can finish some remodel projects.
I don't want to have to leave the project to get her down for a nap.

At night my DH and I can feed her down in bed, but that doesn't work during the day. She goes non-stop until she falls asleep and even in the Ergo she fights sleep.

Any suggestions? I can't see the laying her down and patting her back working.

Can't the sitter use the Ergo? If that is really your nap routine that seems like the simplest solution.

we've had family babysit & they weren't successful using the Ergo. This is actually our 1st teenager babysitter experience. I can teach her and see if she is comfortable.

We've never been able to sit/rock and help her to sleep. She is too busy. We can sometimes sit on an exercise ball with her in the ergo, but even then, she kicks and gets more active.

I was never able to rock him to sleep either...some things work better for others but not for dh or yourself

I'd write a small list of ways to get LO asleep and let the sitter try them out.
