My son screams his lungs out and cries the whole time I put him down
. I go in there every 20 min to reassure him i'm still here and it's of no help:(. We also keep the same bedtime routine he has at night. He only has one nap a day and when he used to sleep for it, it lasted 2 to 2.5 hours. But he hasn't napped in over a month now
...it's so hard to hear him so angry and sad up in his room too. He ends up throwing tantrums the rest of his day because he's tired because of not napping too, making home life harder (sigh)
He is just fine at night and sleeps the whole time however. I think he's going through some major seperation anxiety though which could be why...yet that doesn't make sense why he blows off his nap and then doesn't do this the rest of the night (unless he is too tired to do it anyway haha).
I wonder what I can do to ease the separation anxiety? Any tips on getting him to actually sleep for his nap?!
On a interesting note, he falls asleep in the car to Norah Jones practically right away (Thank you Norah Jones). Should I play her during naps too?!
