Does anyone have any creative suggestions of how I can make the girls comfortable for a nap at someone else's house?
They have one 2 hour nap after lunch. Over Christmas, we need to (!) visit the in-laws. Normally when we go there, we leave here during nap time, drive the 1 hour and then one of us sits in the car with them when we arrive until they wake up.
Over Christmas, we really need to aim to arrive earler (i.e: before start of nap time) but I have no idea what solution I can build/concoct to let them nap. They are still in cots with the sides on at home. We only have 1 travel cot as whenever we've stayed away they have always provided them.
At the moment, the only thing I can thing is that the girls and I will be spending 2 hours of boxing day afternoon sitting in the car while they nap! Thought about taking the single buggies (double won't even fit through in-laws' door) but their house is really small so even if the girls do fall asleep in the buggies, there is nowhere for them to be left that's quiet and warm.
I feel like I must be missing an obvious solution here but not sure what it is?! Please help! xx
