Not letting Davis nap. Yep, my new theory is that he naps too long during the day, therefore destroying his ability to sleep well at night.
You wonder how I came to this theory???? Well, yesterday we got up at 6:20 a.m. and went to Kindermusik at 10 a.m. Normally after Kindermusik he always and I mean always naps. Not yesterday, nope, he was ready to go. We got home and he was asleep in the car, I scooped him up and laid him in the crib. He woke up, smiling and bouncing a whopping 2 seconds later. I put the big stroller in the car and took him to the mall for 2 hours. It was 2 p.m. when we got home and he still was showing no signs of exhaustion. I decided around 4 p.m. to take him to the park. Something told me to have him face me in the stroller though, glad I had him face me because about 1 minute into our walk he was out. I tipped the seat back to full recline and he slept for our entire 1 hour trek. Once we got to the car he woke up. We came home, he had dinner and we took him outside to play for an hour. By 7:30 p.m. he was done, we brought him inside, got his jam-jams on and gave him a bottle. He fell asleep in my arms and I put him in his crib, he woke up, SHIT!!!!! I decided to make him cry it out, that didn't work, he crapped himself, ugh!! So, I got him out, changed him and he fell asleep while getting changed. I rocked him for 5 minutes, put him back in the crib and he slept until 8 a.m.
I've decided that extreme exhaustion and no longer than a 1 hour nap each day is key.
I'll update on the progress of my new sleep solution later.
Watch out Dr. Ferber because Dr. Jill is taking over.
