I feel like I am about pushed over the edge. I have a 3 year old and twin girls born last April 8th, one of my twins has stoped taking her nap.This started last week and I first thoguht it was because she was teething but when 11:15 rolls around she starts crying uncontrollablely and wants me jsut to hold her. This was what she always has done to say she is sleepy and I would give her bottle to her and lay her down. Not anymore, when I pick her up she wails that much louder and if I put her down she gets right back up, I try to rock her and she just won't stop. Yesterday she cried for 2 1/2 hours and then today it was about an hour. She never did nap, but got preocuppied in play. With 3 kids anyways I sometimes feel like pulling my own hair out but the last few days has gotten really bad. I need any and all suggestions because this is wearing me down.

My daughter tried that for about 3 days and we also thought it was teething turns out she was just hungry for more then a bottle I now make sure we have a bigger snack or meal just before the nap and she is back on track we don't always get 2 naps in but we definitely get one long one and she goes to bed between 8 and 8:30 PM that is my suggestion maybe feed the little one some yogurt or something that takes longer to digest and they may just calm down.....but teething can cause this issue too and it is an ongoing issue til they get all their little teeth.

We have different sleep problems, in that my son is still wanting to eat at night. The pediatrician said he doesn't need to eat at night.

I would be happy if she would play by herself, but she just crys. It is almost like she is fighting her sleep, at night she goes right to sleep as noraml. Someone told me earlier this is a typical stage of most 1 year olds. I hope it will pass.

I got told the other day when they get to about 3 they still need quite time and so do you, but its fine if they don't sleep they can play, so if she is happy to quitely play by herself, then is that so bad?
