If she feel asleep, we let her sleep for about half an hour.
ORIGINAL POST My 14 month old daughter has started to skip some of her morning naps. On days that she takes 1 nap, they last only about 1hr 15 min, so she is tired the next day and can't stay awake for long in the morning, so it becomes a two nap day. If you have a more structured day, then choose a time for the one nap and stick to it and she "should" work with it (I think thats how daycares work). I don't have much advice about this, other than to say that it can be a rocky adjustment, but one that miraculously resolves itself.
The first time this happened, she babbled in her crib for 1hr before I took her out. My daughter did the same thing for about a month when she was transitioning. Eventually she got herself on a schedule of 1 nap (at around 17 months I think).
What we continued to do was to put her in the crib with her morning bottle and let her rest.
For ----- who wakes up about 7a, this is about 9.30/10a.
She naps a full 2 hr in the afternoon but this is not a change from when she took two naps.
---- is now 17mo and continues on this basic schedule.In the begginning, I would suggest that you "go with the flow" as I did with my son.He started the switch from 2 to 1 nap at around the same age, and I would just try to see if he was tired enough in the morning to put him down.Give her an early lunch (-12) and then put her in her crib around ..you keep doing that, she should start sleeping longer. nap, so one day she just didn't take it (this was around a month ago).Eventually, she will transition naturally because thay don't need to sleep as much anyway. She took one nap a day for a week, and then she got back to two (this is to tell you that for her is a come and go).Although it was not the greatest transition, though, it all worked out in the end, so I guess I would say to try whatever works best for you, and know that it will pass.
