Well, the night I FB'd about it I said to DH that we weren't going to fight it anymore, if she doesn't go off after half hour just get her up and no nap, put her to bed early. The day after she didn't appear tired so we didn't bother offering a nap and she lasted fine and went to bed at 6pm.
The days following that she went off to bed just fine at naptime. Friday I was working and we didn't get out anywhere so I didn't offer a nap as she wasn't tired due to being at home all day, by 4:30 she was exhausted and was in bed by 5:50 but she did well then settled quickly at bedtime.
She napped fine yesterday. but because we were going to ILs for lunch I put her in the buggy to make sure she napped
Today I had a lie in, DH got up with her and she's had her dummy all morning again She's mega tired now and naughty so I'm about to get her dressed then lunch then bed. We'll see how it goes!!!
Thanks for asking Suzi xxx I no longer have the mindset of "she MUST nap" which is how I was, I got quite worked up, frustrated and annoyed if she wasn't settling, but now I'm just like "ok, you don't have to nap, you just go to bed earlier tonight". I feel much more relaxed about it. In hindsight I feel silly about how worked up I got I think cos it was routine I felt her routine was being broken and everything would go boobies up, KWIM? Silly me!
She didn't nap again today. We went into town this morning, I took her lunch with us so she could eat and then fall asleep in the car on the way home. But as I was trying on my bracelet she closed her eyes and was about off. I woke her up, paid my bracelet and went outside the jewellers to feed her lunch. Then we headed for the car to come home but she didn't sleep We put her up to bed but I think we had missed the sleepy-window and that was it. She's in bed asleep now, exhausted!
