I don't know if my DS is just going through a stage, or if this is a sign that the AM nap is about to go away completely. I'm a bit freaked to think he's going from 3 naps/day down to 1 all at once, because half the time he's not taking #3 either!

It used to be like clockwork -- 2 hrs after waking, he was obviously tired, and would nap for at least 45 mins. Now I can tell he's still getting tired, but 20 minutes into the nap, I've already nursed him down twice, and he's up crawling around on the bed smiling at me. Nap #2 is about 2 hours later, and that's usually a good one. Is this what it looks like when babies drop the AM nap?

Avraham Tzvi is kind of doing the same thing, except it's the afternoon nap that's going. He still goes down about 3 hours after waking up, and pretty much doesn't take another nap. So he's up from 11 or 12 until 5 or so when he crashes for the night.

With my other kids, the morning nap kept getting pushed back until the naps kind of merged to an 11 - 1 nap that just got later and later until it was the "typical" 1 - 3 or 4 nap. There is an akward time where 2 naps are too many and 1 is not enough when the baby is a real

Could be. DD didn't drop her AM nap until about 20 months. Late, I know. Basically I would put her down for a nap and she would just talk to herself.... or, she would take a really short one like you described.

Thanks...as with so many other things, I should probably stop having expectations and just roll with it. I can't control it anyway
