So I thought it would be remiss of me not to post an update to this post. The post sparked much conversation with friends and family regarding sleep schedules and nap times. I know I’m a second time mother but you know, even if you’ve done it once before you’re still learning. So I took to the Google machine to see what other 12month olds were doing in terms of naps. Our lady was going for one nap during the day at about midday. A bit of investigation seemed to suggest that two naps would suit her better, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. So on Friday I started the ball rolling on a new napping schedule. We continued this over the weekend, a nap at 10.15am for about an hour and fifteen minutes and another nap in the afternoon around 3.30pm for about an hour.
And guess what – every single night the small lady has slept from 7.30pm until 7am SOLIDLY.
Not a single peep out of her.

Hurrah to that!! I had so many issues with naps and the twins. Transitioning from one to two seemed to be the worst!! Good luck and here’s hoping it lasts well xx
Good for you for figuring that out! Olivia even at 5 every now and again needs afternoon naps! And yes I am a dad of three and I still learn and my eldest is 16 lol thanks for linking with #wineandboobs
Long may it last for you.
Wow, what a great discovery! Google is the best. I’m so glad she is sleeping well now, well done! #wineandboobs
This is really brilliant! ::internally seethes with jealously:: I am just now trying to get my Little Bald One into a napping schedule. It works some days and some days it doesn’t. But this gives me hope that with perseverance we’ll crack it! #wineandboobs
