which is ok in summer, but horrible that i've got us in this situation for the winter months as i get freezing/soaked/exhausted, trawling round outside. sometimes we havent been out in the pram cos the weathers been too bad (like when it snowed) and shes had no nap at all -and is consequently totally over tired all afternoon. have done cc for the night time and was going to do it for her day sleep but read on here that it doesnt work as its a different kind of sleep?
I haven't really any advice to offer I'm afraid, just writing to say that our 17mo dd is exactly the same! She goes down so happily and sleeps so well on a night though. She just will not go down for us anywhere in the daytime. Since about a month ago there have been quite a few days where she hasn't had a nap; if this happens then it's a little earlier to bed, a little later to get up in the morning (when possible! Depends if she's at the childminder) and we just make sure she has some more chilled out time, say sat reading some books and having a cuddle.
same here, goes down perfectly well at night and generally sleeps through. as i went out on a walk for her to sleep today i thought- this is crazy, the only respite you get with toddlers/babies is when theyre asleep, i dont want to have to be walking her round everyday and not getting a break(its not like i can go for a coffee as she wakes up as soon as the atmosphere changes around her!) i think i'm going to implement cc in the day.. i'll let you know how it goes and if it works mrsmusic!
