    Just a quick question… We have begun transitioning to one nap a day with my 14 month old. I feel like it is too young – but he is showing all the signs – so we are going for it. Here is the problem: He’ll nap (just the one nap) one day fine, but then wake up an hour earlier the next morning, so he ends up needing the two naps the second day. I feel like we are going back and forth. Would it be better for me to just work really hard on getting to one nap a day and let the wake up time get back to normal eventually – or is it fine to keep going back and froth every other day?Thanks!Kate

    Hmmm…I would question true readiness if he is waking early the next day. That sounds like an overly tired issue. Plus, in another month one hour early will turn into two hours early (time change), so I would consider that. Have you tried shortening the morning nap instead? If he slept fine in the night, I would totally say go for it and do two naps if needed one day and one nap the next day, but with the decreased night sleep, I would say either earlier bed time or stick with two naps for a while longer. You can also try longer wake times between naps.

    question. I have an 8 month old boy who still isn't sleeping through the night. He is my second child and I am pro baby wise! It worked great with my first and the scheduling works great with #2 but still no sleep. He is on a 4 hour schedule. He goes to bed around 7 or 7:30 then he wakes around midnight. I have let him cry for up to 30 minutes at a time and then feed. Then he is up again between 5&6 and since I want extra sleep I end up feeding him in a hurry so that he doesn't wake up the oldest because we are in a small apt. Then he goes back to sleep and feeds again at 7:30 to start the day and is pretty consistent with every 4 hour schedule. Please Help! Thanks 🙂

    Jennifer,Does he eat well at 7:30? If so, then my inclination would be that he needs those night feeds. BW says to not move to a 4 hour schedule until baby is STTN. Babies needs X amount of calories a day, and usually need X number of feedings to get those calories in. If baby isn’t getting enough calories in during the day, he will look for them at night.My guess would be that he doesn’t need two feedings a night, though. He might be waking due to you not being able to fully do CIO with him. I would suggest you not even start it if you can’t finish it, since that will teach him that if he cries long enough you will come. I would be sure he is warm enough or cool enough, that he is eating solids well, and see also this post: 5-8 Month Sleep Disruptions : http://babywisemom.blogspot.com/2008/05/6-month-sleep-disruptions.html
