Our new baby has just arrived, and is doing wonderfully, but I am daunted by the upcoming months with my dd (2.5 yrs) and how we will get her to take naps at the same time as baby. Right now I have my parents here to help, so they can take baby while I lie down with my daughter, but once they are gone, it'll just be me.
My dd doesn't sleep in our bed, but usually I lie down with her in bed to sleep at night, and then leave once she's out. She sleeps through most nights, or will come into bed with us if she wakes early. She naps okay at daycare, but because of maternity leave, she'll be out of daycare shortly. At home, she has never been easy to put to naps, unless she's in the car at the right time, or in the stroller. She will eventually lie down for naps with me if she's tired, but usually that's later than I would like (ie. 3 PM!).
Any suggestions from moms who have been there with two (or more)? Or should I just give up on the idea of naps for me and dd?
