Ok VP and R&A you are freaking me out!
*checks to see if it's April Fools Day*
Nah it's nice :-)
Quick update with me doing the happy dance as my 1 year old is asleep in her cot during the day!!! I can't believe this is working!! Thanks for the drop to 1 nap suggestions. I'm not 100% sure she wouldn't be better with 2 but it wasn't working me having to nurse or drive her to sleep.
Day 1 took 90mins fall asleep in her cot with angry crying, then playing, then singing, then sleep for 1hr40! That's super for us. I hate seeing her cry but I lay down in bed beside her cot and just talked gently to her or rubbed her hand but decided this time not to pick her up. It worked!!!
Day 2 only took 15 mins drop off minimal fuss but only slept 1hr
Day 3 we had to go out she had 2 x 1hr naps in car
Day 4 today she was angry again but I stuck with it and took about 30mins. Some crying but it's angry how dare you rather than really upset and I'm here with her. I think it's worked cus I'm committed and not feeling guilty as I really think we both need her to have a decent nap in her cot most days. Fingers crossed this is a decent nap and this new routine can continue
