Nap Jail

When does nap jail end?! Will is taking three naps a day with two-hour waking periods in between. So, by the time I feed him and change his diaper, that gives me an hour and a half to race to the store, attend a class, or run an errand. The drive home from this quick outing is always fun because he is of course fussy right before his nap. I sing every song I know to keep him happy and awake: Itsy Bitsy, Twinkle, Twinkle, Wheels on the Bus, Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, ABC’s, I’m a Little TeaPot…By the time I get home, my voice is hoarse, and Will is no longer amused.

What age did you switch your child to two naps a day? How did you make that transition?
