Sometimes Brandon (19 months) will take a two hour nap (noon - 2pm), but other days he take a 30 minute nap.. On the short nap days he will fall asleep again around 5pm.. Should I use the stay in bed technique when he wakes up after a short nap or just let him get up and take another nap later in the day? If I use the stay in bed technique I want to do it full out and be consistent.. not use the technique one day, then let him get up early the next time..His regular sleep time at night is 8:30pm-8am.
Stay in bed technique = go into the room, lay him back down and just stand near the door, no eye contact or speaking, until he goes back to sleep
What would you do?
