My 18 month old baby girl will not take naps she always fights it even when she is really tired and cranky. I put her down in her crib every day at about 1 ish or after lunch and she will not take a nap she will be in her crib for like a few hours I keep her in then just in case she does go to sleep but she won't go to sleep she just plays in her crib and then she calls for me after like an hour or two cause she want's out I try not to push her nap in at 3 cause her bed time is at 9 and if she don't take a nap after lunch and wants to take one at 4 or later in the evening. If she don't take a nap all day then she goes to bed an hour early. I don't know what else to do any advice would be helpful.... Thanks...

Hugs to you! I couldn't imagine what a terror my son would be if he didn't nap! I'm thinking maybe you need to switch up before naptime routine, it sounds like she associates crib with playtime instead of naptime so she doesn't sleep. I guess try to get her really sleepy (reading, lullaby, quiet time and music) and then put her in crib?
