Bye Bye 2 naps!

Tonight Isabelle fell asleep at a torturous 11.45pm! Left me little time to finish off my chores to start a long week ahead, let alone to watch any TV shows. DH & I decided that's it. We are going to eliminate her current 2 naps routine to just 1 nap a day so that she will be tired enough to go to bed earlier.

She used to diligently go to bed between 9.30pm-10pm till she reaches about 10 or 11 months old. We would have atleast an hour or 2 to watch some movies on TV or reading or just chatting with each other. Her bedtime then delayed later and later. For the past few weeks, it has been 10.45 - 11.30pm. Not only that, it is tiring to sing her lullabies 100 times over & over again and she will still be wide awake and not really half sleepy yet. By the time she really dozes off, I am already a walking zombie yet I have like a million on my to-do list.

I hope I can start her new routine tomorrow and God help me.

Sometime when kids sleep earlier also can backfire. All the while Ben sleeps at 11pm+ and one time we got him to sleep at 10pm... and then he woke up at 2am and played...

Thank God for the past few weeks Ben is regularly sleeping at 10.30pm!
