    Default 12.5 month old day sleep

    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?

    Thanks

    What do you do at night? I do exactly the same for day naps. Story with sleep teddy, into sleeping bag and into bed. Nothing alters so the sleep cues are familiar. Is it possible to make it more like night routine?

    At night, we do bath, bottle, a cuddle, then bed. She will often put herself to sleep at night. Day routine hasn't changed in 6 months

    We do the same for our day and night sleep. DD is 14 months and we do change nappy, sleeping bag, into bed with her monkey and leave. We have blackout blinds so her room is dark in the day time. She will often faff around for a bit and walk up and down her cot/mess with the camera etc but I just go in, put her back down on her back and say 'sleeping time now' and eventually she just rolls over and sleeps.

    Perhaps she is going through a faze and just testing you a bit? If you stick to your routine she may realise there is no point fluffing around?
    What time does she wake up in the morning? I find my DS is ready for nap 5 hours after waking, so if he wakes at 7am he goes down by 12noon.
    Hopefully things work itself out for you
