Has anyone else had a persistent nap problem after moving to a toddler bed? He's 2 yrs 2 months, never been a great napper but I got him to nap in his crib by just leaving him in there to play and sometimes fuss until he'd fall asleep usually pretty soon. But since he can now get up & play with all his toys, he hasn't fallen asleep once in his toddler bed in the daytime (thankfully he does fine at night). Some have said he just doesn't need a nap anymore, but when he doesn't get one at all he is a cranky mess in the evening. So I've just been giving up and putting him in stroller or car seat until he knocks out, sometimes I can successfully transfer to his bed sometimes we just drive around. I feel ridiculous. Help!
