Going down to ONE nap... help!!!!

Hi all you Mom's out there. When did your kids drop their morning nap and start taking one nap a day?

Tyler is tired in the morning, but either goes down and then doesn't sleep or sleeps for about 1/2 hour and then gets up and cries and then lies back down and then gets up and cries, etc. He is still tired, but isn't goinig back to sleep. Do I need to take away that nap or is he teething.... did anyone have this problem?... what did you do?

Please comment!!!


he is almost 13 months

(he normally wakes up around 7:30am and 8:30am. Takes his first nap around 10:30am til 12:15pm. Then takes his second nap around 2:30/3:00-4:30/5. Then goes to bed for the night at 8pm sleeps through the night)... so you know his schedule if that matters on your suggestions. :)

Evan dropped his first nap at about 11-12 months! at first it stunk, but now i kinda like it because we can get more done in the mornings. Evan usually wakes up around 9 (i know, how lucky am i!). And then i put him down for 1 nap right after lunch around 1. He usually sleeps for about 2-3 hours. Good luck!

For Camden, the transitions from 3 naps to 2, then to 1 were hard and unpredictable. It took some time to figure it all out. It might work to push back his first nap a little later, so he's a little more tired. And, be patient. It will resolve itself sooner or later. :)

That sounds right about when both of mine went to 1 nap..usually right after lunch. Hope you are well.

Charlie dropped to one nap on his first birthday (seriously. on the day) but Felicity had a couple weeks where she was only taking one and then went back to two, where she still is (15 months.) Good luck!
