Nap Nanny



I was on the phone with my friend down the street, Reesie, and was telling her about Lincoln's reflux and that he wasn't taking naps longer than 30-45 mins and she told me about the Nap Nanny. Her baby is 9mos old and has outgrown it, so she brought it over. He slept an hour and a half the first time I laid him in it! Amen!! It is just an oversized wedge covered in Minky fabric. This thing is awesome. I've also been working on not having to put him to sleep before I lay him down. I just swaddle him, give him his pacifier and rock him for a couple of minutes. I lay him down while he's kinda drowsy and he's out in no time. If he wakes himself up again, I just reswaddle him and put his passy back in. If he screams bloody-murder, I'll pick him up and rock a few more minutes until he calms down and lay him back down. It's been wonderful! I'm not having to pace the floor with a screaming baby trying to put him to sleep before I lay him down. With the other boys, I waited until they were 5-6 months old before we sleep trained...I was such a pushover. With three...I have to be a little more intentional. He's sleeping 4-5 hrs at a time at night...so that's been great. The big boys are good and still LOVE their baby brother. We're having pictures made of all the boys this weekend so I'll post them when we get them. Happy November!
