    Isabella has been a good sleeper at night, we can put her into her cot half awake and she will go to sleep. HOWEVER, in the day she will not have a nap in her cot and I either have to get her to sleep in the car or by falling asleep with me. This nap can range from 20 mins to nearly 2 hours. How do you get your LO to have a nap?

    Lola will only nap in the day if we go for a walk. I normally put her in her pram and we go around the block and she's asleep when we get back :D

    I think that is what my problem might be. I go out most days and Isabella doesnt have a structured sleep pattern for the daytime.

    Kai has never been the best napper, the last 2 days we have been in because of the terrible snow and he hasn't had one. I hope he catches up today.

    I don find when he has been energetic in the morning, the chances of a nap are a lot higher. But playing is always more important.

    If we go out though, he tend to have a power nap of an hour around 5 and he still goes his normal bedtime.

    Arianna goes to her cot awake and naps at 1.30pm from anything from an hour to 2 hour nap.

    When she was younger, she wouldnt nap unless I stripped her down to just her vest as she figured in her head... clothes on.. must be play time - maybe worth a try :think:

    Rubes will have a bottle and goes into her cot in the morning around 10am for 2 hours, and same in afternoon...mum follows same routine when she minds her and the only time she doesnt is at nursery coz she is too scared of missing out on fun wth the other kiddies !! :rotfl:

    I make sure nursery is dark and warm and as soon as she has her bottle, shes zonked :lol:
