My dd is 12.5 months old and is having 1 day sleep at about 1pm. I have always held her while she falls asleep (my first, I have the time and I enjoy it!) But lately when I hold her she wiggles and fuses. I have tried putting her down and she stands up and runs up and down the cot. I lay her back down and repeat! Eventually she knows what I am going to do and as I go to lie her back down, she throws herself down on her stomach.
I have tried patting her bottom and putting my hand on her back, but she just wiggles out and stands up.
Today I put her down and walked out. She winged on and off for about 50 minutes until she started screaming hysterically and I had to pick her up and calm her down. She then fell asleep in my arms.
Any advice as to how I can get her to settle herself and sleep?
