Hello! My son is 7 months old. He sleeps through the night for the most part (teething has been waking him up but he comforts himself back to sleep). He falls asleep easily on his own for bedtime.
Naps however are another struggle. He takes two naps usually, morning and afternoon. Morning nap is about an hour, sometimes in his crib. However, afternoon nap he will not sleep unless he is nursing. He will sleep for 2+ hours as long as he can nurse. I take him off once he's sleeping but he will wake halfway through and want to be back on.
My question is, how do I get him to nap in his crib and stay asleep for longer than 20 min? I know that I created a habit of nursing to nap, ?75 with him able to sleep at night on his own i know that he is capable. I'm not opposed to cry it out, I just want to make sure I am doing it right. I'll be back to work when he is 12 months so I have a few months to sort this out.
He will also nap well in the car or stroller.
Thanks for your help ladies!!!
