Alijah has gotten really good at taking naps in his crib. He doesn’t cry for more then a minute or two or he just falls right to sleep. In the evening it is a completely different story. He gets tired and I put him down and he falls right to sleep. The issue is he will only take a nap for about 30-45 minutes. For some reason he will not stay asleep. He is still tired and is somewhat grumpy all evening but will not sleep. We then have to force him to stay awake until between 11 and midnight.
My question is how do we get him to go to sleep around 8 or 9 for nap without taking a 30 minute nap and then staying up so late every night? I’m at a lose of what to do. He sleep so well every time but in the evenings. Alijah has also been able to sleep at night for about 5-6 hours so once he goes down late he is good to go but there is our bad time in the evening of tired boy but refuses to go down early.
Please if you have any ideas, advice, I am all ears and will try anything. Thanks in advance for any help and advice given.
