My son turns 3 next month and has recently decided he will not nap. Even when he stays in his room he sits on his bed and sings to himself. I even feel like he's purposely going BM in his diaper (wears only during nap and bed) repeatedly during nap time so that someone will come change him to pass the time.
He's only gone BM in the potty two times and I think he's holding it in for nap time. What can I do?
I know that he still needs a nap because he becomes easily irritated and cranky in the early afternoons when he doesn't get a nap. How can I encourage him to take a nap? I've tried reminding him of positive rewards like his favorite stickers. I've tried ignoring him while he stays in his room. Someone please give me some good ideas!
