is the dilemma. D has just turned 2 and is starting to test the boundries as she should.

An early riser usually 6 she needs her nap bbut today she just kept getting out of bed I kept putting her back in and saying no nap no park in afternoon after and hour and a half of firmness ( only shouted once!) she slept at three and I am planning to wake her at 4 as otherwise betime will be.............god knows when.

Am i insane persuing the nap, the days she doesn't have one if we are out and about she is up at 5 and i am a firm sleep breeds sleep advocate or am i a horrid mummy for forcing her back into her bedroom to nap am rambling now

She needs the nap! TBH I think your nuts (in a nice way) putting her in a bed at 2, mine is in his cot and staying there til he can climb out, he's just about to turn two as well.

My DS2 is huge but still can't get out of the cot. he does bash the sides of the cot a lot though. I know that if I put him in a bed I've had it LOL!

I do think they sleep better at night if they have slept well in the day. They are calmer IYKWIM.
