When Little Girl stopped plopping herself down contentedly at naptime, started screaming at the top of her lungs at bedtime, and continually asked for a drink or to use the bathroom (at 16 months!!!), we knew something had to change. Discipline wasn’t working. Taking her to the potty 5 times in a row wasn’t working. Putting her to bed later wasn’t working.
It was time for one nap.
So we have embarked on a new adventure of trying to figure out the best naptime and bedtime, an adventure replete with mistakes, but definitely a much happier Little Girl! She is faling asleep much quicker, and without the fuss.
Including at lunch.
