    My 19 mth old DD is in 0-2 room (it's not just a NSW thing. Must just be a smaller centre thing).

    When she started at 14mths she was in a cot, then after a few months they started her on the mats and she has been fine. She only sleeps 50-60 min there though.

    I guess not all centres have rooms big enough to have so many cots. Ours is an inner city one so space is limited, they have 5 cots for the youngest bubs. The mats can be stacked up in the corner of the room when not being used.

    Mat. He was on a mat when he started at around 16 months. They don't have enough space for all the bubs to be in cord, so the older ones go on mats. If they don't have a cot available, they don't have one. Not much you can do about it. And at 20 months she'll be moving up to the next room soon enough where they'll all be on mats. They do get used to it, DS took a little while to get to sleep, then only slept for 30 mins on the mat, but slowly got used to it and now sleeps a full 1.5-2 hours.

    I worked in daycare in an 18 months - 2 yo room. All slept on mats on the floor. I found it amazing that I mastered getting an entire room of them to sleep all at the same time! With the little ones who didn't take to nap time very well, we had techniques to settle them down that worked a treat (gentle back rubs, classical music). Have you asked what they do at your daycare to help them nod off?
