I need some advice on how I can change this situation. My daughter is 17 months old and has been at the same daycare since she was 3 months old. She has always been a little hard to get to nap but we have always managed. Her problem is that she doesn't have a consistent routine mainly because of my work schedule. Within the past few weeks she has resisted napping to the point that my daycare provider can not get her down for a nap at all. When she doesn't nap she is a completely "different" child and is disrupting everyone esle's nap because she is a whiny little twit. Not to mention that when I pick her up she is a nightmare or falls right asleep when we are halfway down the road and then her bedtime gets later (not ideal for me as a working mom). So a little background... My daughter was a difficult newborn (cried a lot) but never diagnosed with anything. We attributed it to us being new parents and not knowing what to do. It is a home daycare and when my daughter transitioned to toddler...the daycare provider took on another infant. At first my daughter had become really jealous of the attention but has since adjusted but she has not adjusted to not sleeping in the pack n play. This is kind of ironic because she wouldn't sleep in the pack n play for the longest time. She is also in the temper tantrum stages which makes this whole situation worse. Any suggestions on how I can fix this? When she has a nap...She is a very sweet loving little girl and it breaks my heart to see her like this. And I hate to hear that she is the troublesome child at daycare (never worded like that) but that is the gist of her actions. Anyone go through this and have some insight?
