    Happy Holidays!! I have a question regarding my 9 month old, he takes two naps a day, and he always goes down for his first nap at 10am but the time he sleeps until can vary from 11:30 to 1pm. If he sleeps until 1pm then I have no idea when he’s ready for a second nap…I’ve tried putting him down earlier than usual, and later than usual but he just cries. Would you suggest that I wake him up from his first nap at the same time every day so he’s more on a schedule for the second nap? thanks so much!

    Reds,Thanks! Happy Holidays to you!I wouldn’t let him nap longer than 2.5 hours. If it were me, I would pick a time to wake time every day so things can be more consistent. It sounds like he might sleep shorter some days, but those days could be adjusted. I would take notes for a week or so to see what is his most typical time to wake up and go for that time.

    Thanks for the “well” wishes. I am feeling a bit better right now. I still throw up sometimes, and I have anemia, but I just started more iron which makes a huge difference in my energy level.
