    He slept for 45 minutes. Not long enough as I wished, but at least I know now that I can start putting him down awake and will keep working on that part at least.

    I thought about that too, hoping he would eat better when he's hungry enough. I think I'm just so used to keep nursing and when he was newborn he ate a lot and this pattern just carry on until now and that's how we fell into this "nursing to sleep" pattern. So, I put him down again for 2nd nap now and he didn't want to nurse so I just let it be and he's still whining now... He kinda kept the pacifier in his mouth for about 20 seconds maybe then he spitted it out (bummer!) but we'll try again lol!

I do think there is a window for kids when they can learn to nap in a crib.
    Yes, I agree about catching that window. DS also doesn't sleep well on-the-go anymore or anywhere if it's not dark and quiet.

    We're officially down to 3 naps and he took 2 hour nap earlier without me nursing. I almost cried lol. The other two naps are still short, but I think I have hope now and there are only so many hours you can nap anyway because he's a good night sleeper.
