    Over the past week or so, we've managed to get Lewis to go to bed at around 8pm. He is doing quite well with this so far. :thumbup:

    However, he is struggling with day-time naps. I can't seem to get him to go into his crib during the day. I often pop him into his bouncer or swing to help him to drift off. He's barely slept so far today, and is crying quite a bit.

    At night, I feed him, wind him, then pop him straight into his crib. Should I have the same routine during the day with naps?

    My LO was exactly the same, she goes down great at night after her feed but daytime naps are still a struggle. I tried the same routine for daytime naps but to be honest it didn't make much difference. When she is showing signs of tiredness, I take her upstairs, put her in her sleeping bag, turn on her mobile (just the music) then give her her dummy. I also tell her that she's going for a nap. What usually happens is I have to go back in a few times and put her dummy back in but then eventually she drops off. I think its a case of perserverence with naps, I think she is getting there though, its oftem tempting to pick her up and do my usual job of cuddling her to sleep but now I just keep popping in, reassuring her and giving her the dummy, works for me. Good luck hun x

    I would keep the same routine in the day but make sure the room is lighter so he knows the difference x
