Not napping signal to move from crib to bed?
Nearly 31month old DS is not napping well anymore. If he falls asleep in the car or stroller around naptime, he'll nap, otherwise putting him down at his normal naptime results in 30 minutes of screaming/crying. Without a nap he often falls asleep on the way home from daycare (6:30pm) but then wakes up at 5:30am very hungry (ugh).
He will lay down on the couch and tell me "I napping" but he's just playing and gets up about a minute later. He is really interested in laying on our bed putting his head on the pillow, but again, quickly jumps off the bed after a minute or two of play-napping (with fake snoring too).
DS jumps on our bed, so I hesitate to put him down for his nap on our bed and the couch is too central to the house to be used for napping (plus puts him in dog's face-licking range).
We have a toddler bed in the garage, but I don't want to rush the change from crib to bed if not necessary.
Do you think DS is trying to tell us to move him to a bed? Or maybe just give him a throw pillow to use?
