I would say that trying the same small routine for day time nap time is going to be most beneficial.. try zoning in on their cues and help them to get ready before they get TOO tired or TOO cranky.. I have found M's little cues, so now I prep him and either place him in his mamaroo, or on his play mat with a small blanket that he likes snuggling with.. both are small cues that trigger him to start dozing off


- set the mood (dark quiet and cool enivornment)

- lay them down being drowsy but awake!

- dont rock, hold or feed your baby

- have your baby sleep on their back

- be consistent (if they take the nap same time each day)
