Which will help them sleep better at night. 2 naps is too much, 1 nap isn't enough. Ibuprofen has also been our best friend these past few weeks for teething. AND if you've ever read the Wonder Weeks book, 41-46weeks of age is prime developmental time and they'll start being fussy and cranky. We have a lot of screaming over here and whining and clinging.
This is SUPER helpful for us! We've noticed a change in DS's napping but couldn't quite figure out what was going on! I will definitely mention to DH (who watches DS while I'm at work) and we'll see if we can coax DS into longer afternoon naps! Thanks!
