The good news? Cooper takes some awesome naps.
The bad news? In his car seat.
If he does not fall asleep nursing, it is impossible to lay him down in his crib. Occasionally, we have success rocking and rocking and rocking him, but not always. Sometimes, we let him cry for a few minutes, go in and soothe him, let him cry some more, but this DOES NOT WORK. Occasionally, he will fuss for a few minutes and go to sleep. Usually, not so much.
Right now, he has been asleep for 2 hours in his car seat. After some unsuccessful nap attempts, Ben took him on a 2 minute drive and brought him inside to our room where he has remained asleep despite the chaos of his brothers.
Without the car seat, he doesn't nap at all and gets little purple circles under his eyes, the poor baby.
How do we change this habit and get the baby to nap in his crib? Neither H nor J was a car sleeper, so this is weird to me. Can he nap in a car seat until kindergarten? Should I care? What do you think?
