|Montessori-style floor bed|
Inspired by difficulty in putting A down for daytime naps a few months ago, I stumbled across the concept of the Montessori-inspired floor bed. She fell asleep in my arms each time, but would wake as soon as I put her down - fail! I was intrigued by the idea of the floor bed - not only to make nap times easier (I could now feed to sleep lying down next to her and not have her startle awake when I put her down), but also to foster a sense of independence within her. Done with your nap? No problem, you are free to get out of bed and come and find mommy or daddy!
