Is 23 months of age too early to give up a nap entirely?
Kyra has not wanted to take a nap for a solid week and a half. I have made her lay in bed for up to 3 hours before she finally falls asleep.
I don't believe she's ready to give up a nap because on no-nap days she is an absolute bear by the time supper rolls around (promptly at or before 5). But this whole fighting her for 2 and 3 hours to take a nap is killing me.
I'm drowning here.
I think she needs a nap. Hell, I need her to take a nap. That is MY 2 hours a day of piece and quiet, to stroll outside in my rocking chair and read my book in the easy New England afternoon breeze.
She was a no nap infant who didn't embrace the power of sleeping while the sun was up until she was nearly 1. Now that she's nearly 2, we're having the same technical difficulties.
Got advice? Anyone? What about your Mama, does she have anything?
I miss my books.
