Nap Rebellion

Sun: Annika in bed for about 1 hour without sleeping, finally let her get up so we can go to the park before the sun is gone. (probably a mistake)

Mon: Annika finally napped after talking/crying in her crib for over an hour

Tues: Annika in crib for 1 hour, screaming at the end, finally allowed out because Saben was sleeping

Wed: Annika in crib for over an hour so far, have to go pick up Saben from preschool in 30 minutes, probably won't nap again.

What am I going to do?

Update: Today Annika fell asleelp 15 minutes before we have to leave to go get Saben.

Also, Annika has been napping perfectly since she was 8-9 months old. I just lay her in the crib and she goes to sleep, no fussing. This "no nap" thing came out of nowhere.....

I've never had good sleepers so I wouldn't even know what it was like to just set them down and have them go to sleep. It must be amazing.

I don't know if you have tested this out, but would she stop crying if you sat in the room with her? Is it that she doesn't want to be in her crib, or is it that she wants you there with her? Knowing her motivation might help with the solution...maybe...!

Guess she got some of the stubborn side from the Youngs?

Um...I don't have any advice for you. Just here to spam your blog with comments. ;P

Have ever used Lavender essential oil? The real stuff.. not the diluted stuff like johnson and johnsons. It works really good for insomnia, relaxation, healing wounds, kills bacteria, helps wounds heal faster with less scaring. I would test just a drop on her forarm to make sure she doesnt have a reaction from it. Check it 10 min. later and if there is no redness then you can put some on her forhead, under her nose. It knocks me out when I cant sleep. Maybe it would work for her. You can get it at any health food store.
