At 24 months, our twins are still on a 1 nap schedule. Their nap lasts anywhere from 3-4 hours, and is mission critical to their happiness. The bedtime routine has been consistent for nearly a year now, with the only difference being that they have a slight preference for pajamas with trucks on them. They still sleep in sleepsacks (these XL sleepsacks remarkably still fit 2 year olds), and they love them.
During bedtime, their cribs have only a few objects:
1 – Water (these Nalgene water bottles are great because they don’t leak when they get thrown around their cribs)
2 – Froggy the stuffed animal
3 – To-go books (board books that can *mostly* withstand their destructive tendencies). These are a few of our favorite bedtime to-go books.
– Richard Scarry’s Books on the Go
– Tacky the Penguin
– The Goodnight Train
– Thomas the Train: My Red Railway Book Box
– Cars Boxed Set: Shapes, Colors, and More!
This is their routine at 24 months:
7:00am – wake up
7:30am – breakfast
10:00am – snack
12:00pm – lunch
12:30pm – nap
5:30pm – dinner
6:30pm – bath, books, brush teeth
7:00pm – bedtime
