My daughter will be 2 on the 14th of July and she has began rejecting naps at her normal nap time and then decides she is sleepy at 4-5 and if we keep her up then she is cranky and whiny. But if we let her take a SHORT nap then she doesnt go to bed at her normal time. she will fight us to go to bed and eventually after pure exhaustion from fighting her to go to sleep we let her in the living room and she falls asleep on the floor or the couch! we used to have her on a strickt schedule where she was in bed at 9 and asleep by 930. now we are lucky if we get her in bed by 10! This is just getting so old. I don't know what I can do to get her to lay in her bed and fall asleep in her bed on her own!! If you have any advise please do share!! I'm kind of afraid to try the cry it out method but with baby number two due next month I'll be willing to try anything!!
