Miracle Napping Solution!

After struggling with naps for a while now and sometimes succeeding, sometimes not, I was at my wits end! Yesteday, Alexis was clearly in need of a nap towards the late afternoon.  She was not falling asleep in her swing, which usually works.  I put her in her crib but she started kicking her legs in the air and playing with her feet.  Then she started whining and not falling asleep.  So, I thought I would try to put her on her tummy.  I had tried doing that before but she never liked it and would pick her head up.  Well she put her head on the mattress and I patted her butt a little and then left the room.  I didn’t hear anything on the monitor and went  back to check on her and she was out! She actually slept for an hour and a half!  I decided since it worked I would do it again today to see if it was a fluke or not and she’s asleep, almost 2 hours now!! Yay!!!!! She never napped that long in her crib on her back before so I think this is it!!
