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.
