DS is almost 2 and i unfortunately let us get into the habit of him being put in his pushchair and going for a walk to get him to have a nap in the morning... this works and he sleeps for an hour/hour and a half.
However... obviously winter time is not great for going for walks. I can't seem to be able to get him to nap any other way... he ends up falling asleep on his feet (or usually on the sofa in front of the telly blush during the afternoon which is deadly as it means he won't then go to bed until much later.... I really need the evening to put my feet up i'm usually far too knackered to still be entertaining him past 7.30pm...
I've tried insisting he goes in his cot for a nap - he just cries... i've tried getting him to cuddle up on the sofa... he thinks we're playing at sleepy time and jumps up shouting wakey wakey! as soon as you think hes asleep...
any advice on how others have coped with this problem would be great.
