So DH and I just got back from a trip to Minnesota for 5 days... but this thread is not about that lol. Luke stayed with my mom and did really well.
I called her the first night after warning her that he gave up napping about 3 weeks ago. She tells me that he took a two hour morning nap and a 1 hour afternoon nap :eek: I was soo shocked. I have missed his naps terribly because I am STILL working nights and now I don't even get a nap in during the day. He continued to take 2 naps a day the entire time he was with her.
I begged her to tell me her secret. The room his is staying in has light blocking shades. His room at home just has blinds that even when closed leave the room very bright. She also was putting him in his pajamas for naps to get him in sleeping mode.
We got home yesterday and I worked last night. This morning at 9:30 I hung towels over his windows to block the light, put him in pajamas, and he went RIGHT to sleep for TWO hours. And then took an hour nap this afternoon. My baby is napping again!!! I am thrilled :D:D:D
I'm definitely sending DH to Home Depot tonight to get shades for his room.
I had to share my excitement, and I know there's some other baby's here boycotting naps so I wanted to offer Luke's miracle cure. woohoo!
