Great Napping Baby, Batman!

This gold star goes out to Pieces of Me for her fabulous napping advice!

For a while, X-man napped in his crib, but only for 15-20 minutes. Then something happened and he totally protested the crib for naps. At the end of July when my parents and sister visited, we figured out that X-man would take a nice nap on the floor in my living room. So, I started letting him nap there. And he'd sleep for about 30 minutes, sometimes as long as an hour.

Problem? The general tip-toeing I have to do in the living room while he's asleep. Always worried about if the phone's going to ring and wake him up; the typing on the keyboard is going to wake him up; someone rings the doorbell; etc.

So, yesterday, I asked my little buddy group for some tips on getting him to nap in his crib. Pieces of Me suggested letting him fall asleep on the floor and then moving him to his crib. So, for his afternoon nap I did that and he slept for 45 minutes in the crib!

And he's been in his crib now for 30 minutes ASLEEP!!!

I just can't believe it! I'm hoping that eventually I'll be able to put him straight in his crib and not have the initial sleeping on the floor bit. However, I'd rather be worrying about fixing this issue than trying to get him to sleep at night. He does that great!

Yeah, that napping thing is a hard thing to get down. Goober Baby refuses to sleep any longer than an hour. Which I should be grateful for just that, but her older sisters spoiled me with their super duper 2+ hour naps.

Love the star! (wonder why?!!? LOL!)
