Just wondering if someone can shed some light on my problem? Up until this week our little girl would go down for a nap in her bed around 1pm everyday and sleep for 1.5-2hrs. No fuss and no fights!
Last weekend my husband and I went to the coast for the weekend and she stayed with her grandparents (who have her regularly when I have to work and at other times overnight). She napped on one day with them and then stopped.
Since we've been back home I've had a shocking time. She simply WILL NOT nap, and instead kicks the wall, screams, opens cupboards and drawers. I have tried everything but nothing seems to work.
Having said all of this I understand that some kids drop their nap at this age and I could be happy with that IF night time wasn't a problem. Now that she won't nap during the day she turns into an absolute MONSTER at night. Screaming and crying and kicking, bashing the door and carrying on. We never had this problem before, even on the odd occasion that she would skip a nap she would generally fall asleep at night with no problems.
I am 30 weeks pregnant with number 2, still working shift work and not sleeping very well at night. I'm just exhausted, I can't understand where my good little sleeper went.
Any tips please?
