My husband is a stay at home dad with our 11 month daughter and has been since she was 6 months old. I recently had a 3 week long break for the holidays from work, I'm a teacher, and now she will not take a nap for her dad during the day. He has to put her in the car...drive around...and then sit in the car until she wakes up...approx 1 hr later. As a result he gets nothing done during the day in the house. Almost everything has to wait until I get home at 4. Before my 3 week holiday she was sleeping for her dad in our bed without a problem.
More info: I nurse...and she always nurses to sleep with me. We have tried setting up a naptime routine, laying with her, feeding her from a bottle. We even tried crying it out...for 10 minutes (which is all either of us could take). Any suggestions? Oh nightime sleep is usually not a problem because I am always there as part of the bedtime routine.
Thanks. : ) Andrea
