Caio is now going to day care and yesterday they were saying that it's been really hard to put him down on nap time... Usually I hold him, sing for him and don't give up until he is down, because I know he is tired but just doesn't want to give in. When he is in that mode he usually screams!!! But eventually he falls asleep, and usually for a long time - in themorning he sleeps for 1 hour and in the afternoon for 2-3 hours.
I know that they can't do that at daycare, because they have so many other kids they have to watch. They were saying that I need to "train" him to fall asleep on his own...
How do I do that? He usually falls asleep with me holding him or after a bottle, but I never put him in the cribb and leave - although I do the cry it out method at night.
Any suggestions/tips on how I can make nap time easier?
