Naps....right now that is a four letter cuss word in this house. It has definitely been...shall we say...challenging to get Lilli down for a nap lately. This afternoon she fell asleep in the car for less than 5 minutes even though I was in the backseat with her trying to keep her awake. When we got inside she woke up, I gave her a bottle, and tried to lay her right back down to sleep. Almost two hours later, she finally went down with the help of the swing and the repeat button on the cd player.
She use to be able to put herself to sleep, but as soon as she learned how to sit up on her own that all fell apart. We have been fighting a losing battle ever since then. I have finally gotten her to the point where I just lay her down in the crib and stand over her and rub her back and usually withing about 15 minutes she is asleep. But if I leave the room before she is asleep we have to start back over again. This is better though than trying to rock her to sleep. She is a real fighter when we do that.
Well I just got her down to bed for the night, so I am off to get some rest since our day wasn't very restful :)
