S is going to be 1 in 2 1/2 weeks, and I think he is showing signs of wanting to transition to 1 nap.

We were doing the 2-3-4 routine for the past 5 months, and it was working well, but lately S will play in his crib for up to an hour (or sometimes more) before taking his nap, which really throws off when bedtime lands.

Now, over the weekend we noticed that regardless of when he wakes up, and when and how long nap #1 is, he wants to take a nap at 4:30 PM (bedtime is about 10pm).

Right now he has been up for 3 hours since starting our day, and is still playing happily on the floor, so I think I am going to see how it goes.

How did your LO transition to 1 nap, and what does his 1 nap routine "look" like?
