    Someone needs to invent a portable room divider. We We put the pnp in a closet sometimes, but not always available. In order to mimic them having their own room, I need something to block our 1yo from seeing us walking in/out of room.

      @ Cindy – I hear you! One of our consultants recommends trying a portable coat rack – they expand and collapse, making them easy to take along when you travel. And you can usually expand the rack, drape a blanket over it, and then you have a (sort-of) room-divider. Usually works in a pinch, especially when you have to share a room with your child when you travel. Something to consider, anyway 😉

      Thanks for commenting, Cindy! 🙂

    @ Becky – rant away, friend! Moms do it all the time on this site, and we welcome it 🙂 Sorry to hear that sleep has been rough on vacation, but I’m not surprised; our kids always sleep SO much worse when we’re on vacation than they do at home, and they’re past the baby and toddler stages! We always end up with late bedtimes, early rising, and pathetic naps on trips. So I feel all your pain 😉

    Thanks for “ranting”, Becky; hope your vacation is fun, even with the nap time drama!

    I feel like I could have written Laurie’s post except we finally napped trained about two months ago. Anyways he is screaming bloody murder for naps and bedtime on out beach trip. We used the trash bag tip and that has helped a bit. My husband is napping with him right now so I can get a break. He is also going through a nap transition but is so tired in the morning(fights his afternoon nap at home too.) I brought the ergo and have been taking car rides. At home I would let him blow off some steam in his crib at let him put himself to sleep but I don’t want my in laws to think I’m a monster so I’ve been laying in the bed next to his pack n play, this helps him settle in better but his cousins keep waking them up 🙁 anyway I don’t really have a question or tip just wanted to rant a bit. Thanks for the post!
