Bella's sleeping habits seem to change day to day at the moment ... am going with the flow - trying to read her cues, and give her what she needs
I get confused between overtired and not ready to nap!!!
She was rubbing her eyes today 3 hours after her 12 hour night sleep ...
she doesnt usually sleep 12 hours - so i did not plan to put her to bed until after an early lunch ...
but when she seemed tired, i put her in her crib after her bedtime routine - and she cried like i have never ever heard before ....
she then seems to cry SO easily at anything i tried to do with her - play, sing, read, tv - a few mins and she'd be crying again!!!
Any tips on how to read the difference between overtired and actually not wanting to nap!!!
