My very lovely and previously predictable son has always napped from 9-11am and 1-3pm. Since he was 10 months old (and gained mobility!), he won't go down for the afternoon nap. He is dead tired and very cranky- he really still needs the afternoon nap. We've pushed it later and later, and go by his "tired" signals. Afternoon naps become full meltdowns. He throws his pacifier and favourite snuggly animal away. I've tried keeping him up since he doesn't want to nap, but he gets overtired. Any suggestions for making afternoon naps a less traumatic and more enjoyable experience for both of us?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
