Two days in a row now Danny has resisted naps. He slept/nursed/dozed from 11-12 but wouldn't let me unlatch him. Yesterday we missed the afternoon nap window while running errands. Today I took him to the pool after lunch and then we came home for bath and nap. I've been trying to get him down for a nap for over an hour now. I am very frustrated.
Frustration is compounded by having just read Sleepless In America. I already knew naps were important but it reminded me of how much more pleasant Danny is when he's well-rested. We've been working on bedtime and Danny is consistently going to sleep around 8:15-8:30. Up at 6:30 means he gets 10 hours of sleep at night. So he needs 2-3 hours of nap. Not 45 minutes!
I've done a full bedtime routine for this afternoon's nap and he's still not asleep. Argh.
ETA: Finally I gave up and back-wrapped him and just got on with my housework. Less than ten minutes later he was out like a light. I wonder if that would have worked at 2:45 rather than at 4:15?
