My two year old just recently started not wanting to take his afternoon nap. He used to be an amazing sleeper. He is clearly tired and cranky. We have tried to take him outside and let him play his heart out in the snow so he's tuckered and will sleep but it seems like it just wakes him up. We've tried giving him a big meal so that would knock him out but nothing seems to be working! Help!when he's in his room he opens the door and wonders his way down stairs I bring him back upstairs and he balling by this time and he just sits in his room balling and balling. I don't want to go the he'll cry himself to sleep route. After three hours of this he finally falls asleep.
