OT..i took ALL his toys out of his room

about a week and a half ago, eli woke up on the TERRIBLE TWO'S side of the bed, AND he refuses to take a nap; he'll play and talk in his room for 2 hours (the amount of tim ehe would normally take a nap, i leave him in there hoping he'll fall asleep), AND he is only sleeping 10 hours now instead of 12!!! :mad: I am soooo tired!

bedtime is perfect, nothing wrong there. and even in the mornings it's fine, he just wakes up at 6am! I don't get him until 7am though. I let him play in there.

but the nap time he just refuses to sleep! So, i just took ALL his toys out of his room and he watched me do it..even helped LOL as i type this, i can hear him opening his closet looking for them. I hope this is a phase that goes by quickly!

Claire doeas the same thing. We never had any toys in her room just a few books and her clothes. She will still spend 2 hours playing in there instead of sleeping. I can't imagine if she had toys:eek:

Oh dear! Zylin sleeps WITH me for nap time Wink If he takes a nap so do I. Though he sleeps with someone all the time so he's used to that part. He's never in his room, only to get something he wants out of there. Or to dump the whole thing of fish food in the tank Wink

I feel your pain! DS gave up naps probably eight months ago or so (just turned three yesterday). Definitely makes for some long days!

Yeah, eli never slept with us except for the first 2 weeks of his life. That is when i put him in his own room and we've both been sleeping better ever since...well until now! lol Even if i try to lay down with him, he thinks it's a game:rolleyes:

Trust me, this has nothing to do with the toddler bed. lol he was doing this before i switched him to the toddler bed. He stays really well in bed at night, he just isn't tired enough for a nap.

Maybe i should run him around the block! lol

stick with it. Natalie tried pulling that crap too, and I took the toys out of the room. I took the books out too, just at the start. now I put her in there every day and she eventually (within 20 minutes) takes a nap. and the nap is at least 90 minutes. granted, I lock her in there because if I don't, she doesn't stay in the room. but I NEED her to have that quiet time, away from me. Wink

love that picture btw, you'll have to scrap it!

He ALWAYS sleeps like that. Ever since he learned how to roll over he has been sleeping like that!! It's automatic for him, the minute i lay him in bed he rolls over and tucks his feet and arms under his body lol

I took him for a walk before lunch today and he went to sleep in like 5 minutes. So i think i'll have to do that every day now. Hopefully the rain goes away soon
