nap time turning into playtime

Laurie - posted on 08/16/2012 ( 4 moms have responded )




I have girl/boy twins that just turned two in June. We switched them to todder beds this week bc they are able to climb out of their crib and pack n play. They have been doing good during night time but when it's time for nap they think its play time. I don't want to give up nap time... any suggestions???

i dont have twins but my son has decided that on weekends and weekends only he wont nap makes for a huge day and very grumpy at arvo/ bed time do they have toys in their room? or is it play with each other, having only one he has no toys except his much loved doz teddies in his bed, having a second to play off must make it hard especially if you cant seperate them :( sorry i havent been much help, hope u get them sorted soon.

Are they able to sleep if they're separated? If so, it might be an idea to have them sleep in different rooms for naptime.

I have the same problem here. when its nap time, my son wants to play with his older brother. I've tried almost everything, but now I just let him drop. when he gets tired I let him just nap where he is at. I can't make him nap when he's not in the mood. but if he doesn't nap before 4pm, I won't let him nap at all because if he naps after four, he's up soo late at night
