My DS Riley is almost 21 months old now; we nightweaned a month ago and he's been sleeping so much better since then at night. Naps are another story. He's been the classic short-napper for a long time and I can't seem to extend it without lying down with him and nursing him back to sleep when he wakes up. This wouldn't be so bad, but usually I can un-latch after that wakeup, I have to stay lying down with him for another hour or two. I really would like to change that, but so far everything I've tried hasn't worked. I've got white noise going, I've got it as dark in the room as I can get it, and I've tried NOT nursing him when he wakes up, but all that results in is him screaming for a long time, then waking up fully. So he'd rather not sleep then not nurse/sleep. I don't know why daytime is so different from night where sleep is concerned. Something else that really kills me is that I WOH 4 days a week and he naps just fine for the sitter! I know she worked on getting him to sleep in the crib there when he was little and I never really pushed that at home because this didn't use to be a problem. Bit by bit, though, it's become a bigger problem. My DH and I are ttc#2 right now and I'm worried that I won't have changed this by the time the next baby comes along.<br><br>
anyone been in this situation and been able to extend the naps?<br><br>
