What is up with her and her nap time tantrums??!!!

For the last several days, Moriah is REALLY fighting me at nap time. It is ridiculous. Today, I put her down around 12:00 pm after and early lunch (she woke up earlier than normal) and it is 2:00pm and she is still screaming and protesting, asking for stuff, etc. Now, I know she has a congested nose, but this constant tantruming at naptime isn't normal for her even when she has a cold/cough. She at least tries to sleep- the cough congestion may wake her up a few times but I do not get this all out fight and refusal that I am getting. What is the deal??!!

I hope this doesn't mean she is starting to grow out of them. :angry1:

I hope for your sake it is just a phase not a new thing. Is Sophia still napping?

Izzies favorite new Phrase is "no nap, Izzie all done sleepin" even before she lays down. Hoping its just a phase Smile

It is incredibly frustrating when they fight sleep and you know that they still need it! I hope that once she is over her cold, she goes back to her normal nap routine.

Sophia stopped napping around 2.5 years. Hoping it is a phase. She is sick AGAIN so that probably has a lot to do with it....

I'm not sure if she's still fighting you on naps but could you try to put her down earlier? Maybe she's overtired and that's why she's getting cranky? Just a thought! Smile
