I tried several of the nap time options that everyone suggested and the one that works the best for us is the pallet on the floor. Because Morgan is almost 11months old, the sling doesn’t work for us. He is too excited about all of the things he can reach in that position and doing the dishes or other household chores becomes a hilarious test of his reach versus mine!
Yesterday, Morgan cut another tooth–so he was cranky and napped a lot. He slept for an hour and half in the morning and three hours in the afternoon. It worked out great for us, because Jeremy’s flight was delayed coming home from his class reunion and Morgan was still awake to greet him and to play a bit before his daddy gave him a bath and rocked him to sleep.
This morning, Morgan was so sad that Jeremy had to go to work. He kept reaching for him and calling out. I know it made Jeremy feel good to know that he had been missed and that Morgan had not forgotten about him in 4 days!
