The next day we thought maybe he didn't need to nap as early so I put him down later in the day. There was a little bit of fussing, but it went much better than the day before. Normally I don't check on him for naps in case I wake him, but today I wanted to be sure he wasn't asleep on the floor or anything. I peaked in and he wasn't in his bed. Instead he had climbed out of his bed, over his diaper champ, and onto his changing table where he had passed out. I tried to take a picture to prove this oddness, but he woke up before I got my camera. So I got him settled back in his bed and back to sleep.
So maybe the issue was that he was getting too much sleep during the night and didn't want to sleep during the day. I mean most days he was sleeping 11 hours at night. So I nudged his bedtime back to 8pm instead. Great idea, but it didn't work out as planned. It was now dark outside as Jason was falling asleep and he didn't like his room that dark. There is a nightlight on his side of the monitor, but it has a timer function and Jason was unhappy when it went off. He woke up and fussed around midnight then completely woke up for the day at 5:30am! GRRR! Well that was this morning so hopefully he will nap great this afternoon. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
