Well...he took an excellent nap for one day...now we're on day two of no naps. Just talked to a friend over the phone and she said her little one did the exact same thing around the same age. I'm going to try her advice: switch him to a very regular eating schedule (3 meals a day). This made his crazy awake periods cease when I started him on solids a few months ago, too, so I am very hopefull. He has only been having one 'real' meal a day (i.e. pureed food instead of nursing) and she said to start having (after nursing) 3 meals including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I just started this morning with papaya for breakfast (he never got breakfast before) and then a full meal for lunch (usual is some sort of meat and a few veggies, if he's still hungry, then some fruit), and a hearty dinner, too. Lord, help me with my frustrations.
