Once we started nap training Charlie, I printed out the nap routine I created for him and taped it to his wall, so that anyone else watching him would know what to do. I was a stickler for doing everything in the exact same order before every single nap so that Charlie could identify his nap cues. But it was a very handy reference for Mr. Bee, since our nanny put Charlie down for naps during the week and I usually put him down for naps on the weekends. It’s also great for babysitters and grandparents. You can see Charlie’s nap routine below for the first year of his life. Now that he’s older, we just give him a bottle and plop him in his crib and he puts himself to sleep.
