Quinn goes down like a dream at 9am. Teagan does not. In T's defense, she is usually not tired. I still put her down because she doesn't normally cry but will chat to herself or sometimes play. Quinn is usually up around 10:15/10:30. At that point, we usually head out to do an activity, meet friends or walk the dogs. Selfishly, if I don't get them both down at the same time, I will never get a minute to myself.
Teagan's morning nap is inconsistent at this point, which is why I haven't moved their first nap to later in the morning. Sometimes she's exhausted at 9am and will fall asleep almost immediately.
Yesterday morning, I put her to bed at 9. She didn't make a peep so I assumed she was asleep. I heard her fussing shortly after 10 so I went to get her. Once Quinn was up, we took the dogs to the beach for a run. On the 8-minute drive home from the beach, Teagan fell asleep. Clearly, she spent her time upstairs doing other things. I brought her in from the car and she was still asleep. I held her for a bit but didn't want to put her to bed because a) it was almost lunch time and b) it would screw up her afternoon nap. I ended up lying her on the floor on a pillow. This is what happened:
Fellow parents of multiples...have you ever experienced this? Did you force the same nap schedule or resign to different schedules?
Oh my, that is cute, and is T ever a sound sleeper! I don't think I've been bold enough to let The Bean nap outside of his crib (or carseat) since he was about 4 months old!ReplyDelete
I keep the boys on the same schedule! They have all been pretty inconsistent lately, more with their afternoon nap than the morning, so I am thinking it might be time for the transition to one nap. We are taking slow however because they are all different but I need them to be on the same schedule for my sanity & so we can get out of the house to do things.ReplyDelete
I have no advice, but that video is hilarious!ReplyDelete
