How many naps does your 8 month old take? Mine doesnt seem to want to take his morning nap and I'm not sure whether to just give up and let him not take it or to insist with rocking and stuff.

What time does your baby wake up in the moring? My son has always taken two naps. He is 13 months and still takes two naps and I think it's b/c he wakes up so early. He wakes up between 6 and 7. I would say if your son wakes up later that he probably only needs one nap.

I agree with jokes. Some 8 month olds really are ready to ditch a nap. Maybe he'll start taking a longer afternoon nap.

My son is 9 months and he takes 2 naps a day. Both about 2 hours each. Does he cry when you but him in the bed. Maybe you could try putting him in the bed before he is asleep. Would he play for a while then go to sleep. It took me quite a while to get my son to take good naps. He would nurse himself to sleep and then if he would wake up he would think he had to be up as soon as he wakes up. I guess if he is not acting really tired during the rest of the day he might be okay with out a morning nap.

At night he's fine.. Since he was 4 months old he's gone to bed on his own. But since at night he gets put down and goes to sleep on his own I like to cuddle him a little for his naps.. But it doesnt work anymore in the morning! he falls asleep in my arms and then wakes up when I put him down. His afternoon nap still is fine. He sleeps a good 2 hours. Just was wondering whether he didnt need that morning one anymore??
