Ok, so I posted a few days ago about nap issues. Despite my schedule not allowing for me to give Keira a later nap due to Chloe's school, I tried it when Chloe went back to her mom's.
Instead of her usual 12:00 nap I put her down at 1:00pm yesterday. She jumped up and down like she has been doing and was wild until just before 2:00. And then she fell asleep for the first time in 4 days. It was super swell because like she typically does, she slept for 3 hours, waking up at 4:50pm. I get Chloe every other week from school and HAVE to leave my house at 3:00pm. So this will NEVER work. Waking Keira up after 1 hour= monster child.
Today I went to the mall with a friend, let her run, play hard, and put her down at 1:30 when we got home. She has since broken her SECOND crib bumper by ripping off the strings, she's still up there jumping and throwing things out, and not sleeping whatsoever.
I am at a loss and I am SO fed up and getting extremely frustrated with her. She will jump in her crib, fall and hit her head, and cry. So I go up, tell her beds are not for jumping, kiss her better and leave. She turns around and does it again, and again until she hurts herself, and then cries. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. If she does fall asleep today, I'm banking it happening at 2:30 or close to 3. This just can't become the norm.
No nap from now until forever is not an option. Waking her up after 1 hour into it is also not an option. WWYD? I am getting really ticked off at this point. How did it go from napping at noon with no issue to not napping at all overnight?
