DD will. not. nap. Like, hardly at all. She went from taking great naps during the day and being an overall happy, pleasant baby to taking a couple half hour naps a day and yelling/screaming/being a mess during almost the entire day. I know she's tired. She looks and sounds tired. But she wakes up after 20-30 minutes every time I put her down for a nap. Getting her to go back to sleep pretty much never works. Occasionally if I pick her up and rock her for another 5-10 minutes, she'll fall back asleep, but she always wakes up again very soon.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice/experience with this, because I can't go another week listening to a screaming baby all day and getting nothing done. I would not be opposed to a modified CIO method, but I don't really know how to go about that with naps. She doesn't really have problems sleeping at night, it's just during the day. Would putting her down awake and "teaching" her to fall asleep herself, instead of rocking her to sleep every time possibly help?
