Dd 15mths had started day care this week, 2 days. She refused to sleep at day care on the toddler beds. I know it's all new and will take some time to get used to it all. But she now is refusing to have her bottle at home for both her day and night nap and it takes forever to get her to sleep.
She was always a good sleeper. She would have a bottle and pass out cold every time and was settled easily. I don't like control crying and CIO methods. But I'm at a loss as to how to get her to sleep. She just screams at me and refuses to have a nap. But if I go for a drive she will pass out and sleep for 2 hrs in the car. I can't spend all day in the car unfortunately.
Any tips or help on how to get her more used to the different sleeping environments at home and day care?

Sorry, I don't have any real advice but have you asked the daycare how they put her to sleep? Do they just try to leave her or do they pat to sleep? Do they give her a bottle at the same time that you do?
My DS started at 7 months so a lot different but the day care was careful to follow the home routine as much as possible. He's 20 months now and when I asked about 6 months ago, they were patting to sleep.

she is in the toddler room. So all the kids follow the same routine now and have a nap after lunch. I provide a bottle since that is how she went to sleep at home but she refuses to have it now at day care and home
As far as I know they sit with her until she falls asleep. But that took an hour the other day and she only slept for 20min

All I can suggest then is following the same schedule at home. Hopefully it's only short term pain and it gets better for you. Someone else may be able to offer better advice.
