Hi Girls,

I am on the verge of pulling my hair out as we just cant get passed our 30min naps

We only started EASY a few weeks ago so when i noticed the problem i posted and was advised to reduce "A" time as Kieran is 7 months and ours was 3.5hrs which i was told was too much, so everyday i have been reducing by 15min with still no change, we did have 1 x 1hr nap one afternoon a few days ago with an "A" time of 2.30hrs so i have been sticking with 2.30 during the day but it is very hit & miss but 2.30 just wont work for the morning nap as we are still getting no more than 20/30mins. Today i tried 2.15 and was sure this was going to be it, it takes 15mins for him to settle so i put him down after exactly 2hrs of "A" time and he just lay there wide awake for 30mins, so by the time he finally went to sleep we where back to an "A" time of 2.30hrs and again we had another 30min nap. So at 2.30hrs+ we get 30mins naps and he wakes up cranky but any less than 2.30hrs and he just lays there awake. I was going to try increasing "A" time again for the morning nap but im sure i read that 30min naps always mean O/T so any ideas?

I have been tweaking our EASY routine daily to try and find "A" times that work but here is an example of what we did yesterday:

E: 7am - Woke up & Milk (8oz)

A: 7.30am - Plays with Daddy

A: 8am - Breakfast

S: 9.15am - Nap (usually sleeps 9.30-10am)

A: 10am - Playtime

E: 11am - Milk (8oz)

A: 11.15am - Lunch

S: 12.15pm - Nap (usually sleeps 12.30-1pm)

A: 1pm - Playtime until 3pm

E: 3pm - Milk (8oz)

A: 3.15pm - Snacktime

A: 3.30pm - Playtime

S: 4/5pm - Catnaps for 20/30mins around this time

A: 5.30pm - Dinner & Milk (8oz)

A: 6pm - Start Bedtime Routine

S: 7-7.30pm - Bedtime

E: 11pm - Dreamfeed 8oz Milk

E: 3am - Nightfeed 8oz Milk

Can anyone see where i could be going wrong?
