Naptime... the big dilemma. About 2 months ago, I thought EK was about ready to give up naps. Then she was diagnosed with mono so naps have continued until now. She never wants to lay down for a nap... she cries and says she doesn't want to get in her bed. But... after about an hour of playing around, she always falls asleep. She does feel better but at bedtime we go through the same routine.
So I decided today we would try something different. Right after lunch I told her it was time for rest and I allowed her to lay on the sofa and watch a movie. She jumped right up without so much as a frown. Several times I thought she was falling asleep but she stayed awake and seemed happy even with no sleep. Now we are going out for a swim and hopefully transition through the afternoon with no nap- how many break downs do you predict? I know it will take time... Are there other moms out there going through the same thing? Love to hear from you!!!
