In Reply to: Steve, any updates on Hannah's napping? posted by Elizabeth on June 17, 2003 at 14:42:08:

And now .. today's update ..
Hannah did great today. My MIL did what she's supposed to -- give her a little bit of a bottle until she's drowsy, and then put her down in her crib to sleep. The little girl slept for 1.5 hours again! Yesterday must have been a fluke, because she's averaging 1.5 hours in 3 out of 4 days. We've also started doing the same thing for her late afternoon naps, and it seems to work pretty well then.
You can call our little endeavour a success, I suppose! I know we're still using a bottle to settle her down, but this is a big step for us. Hannah hasn't napped on a consistant basis without being held since she was 3 months old and my wife went back to work part-time. Mrs. Steve and I discussed it and we're going to stick with this system for a few weeks and then take the next step -- removing the bottle from the equation (eek!)
