Hi everyone, I'm after some advice with my DDs day naps. Since going to one day nap she has generally napped really well, between 2-3 hrs. We've had a couple of disruptions recently, she got really unwell with a virus that lasted about a week then my DH went away for work so we went to stay at my mum and dads for a couple of nights. Anyway, were back home and back to normal
now but she has started waking about an hour to an hour and a half into her nap. She wakes up crying and cries until I go in. I tuck her back in and she goes back to sleep but I have no idea what is bothering her. Has anyone else's toddler done this? Did you do anything differently or was it just a phase that went away on its own?
She's still getting plenty of sleep I just don't like seeing her upset.

Thanks Rose and Aurelia! Good to know both your girls went through this and outgrew it. Hopefully she will outgrow it sooner rather than later!

I'm no help. Our 17 mth old went to one day sleep at 10 mths and has only done 30-45 mins a day since

As awful as it is to see her so upset I would just keep doing what you are doing. It is probably just her trying to get back into her routine and as pp said something she will outgrow.

My 18 month old has down this the last two naps, usually sleeps 2+ hours no issue but waking at 1.5 crying and falls back asleep if I just lay him down and do a little pat. His canines are really bothering him so I think it's that, going to give Panadol today before nap to see if it helps but I've also read there's an 18 month sleep regression, so maybe that as well?

I have no idea what causes it but it does pass. I've taught my girls to climb into my bed (I nap daily too) and go back to sleep. This way I don't wake up.

Thanks everyone, she went a little better today, grizzled a bit at 1.5 hrs but then put herself back to sleep for another 45 mins. Woke up very happy too!
I know I shouldn't get so worried about her crying, I've always been a sook about it to be honest and now that I'm pregnant I think hormones are making me even worse! I am very grateful she takes decent naps too. I think some if it might be seperation anxiety, she is particularly attached to me at the moment. I'm sure like every baby/toddler phase it will pass soon!
