We have been incredibly fortunate to have a good sleeper, J has always gone to bed at 7pm and is up and raring to go at 6-7 in the morning, on occasions this fails due to sickness etc, though she’s been pretty consistent.
Daytime naps have always been just as good and for the last year or so she has always gone down at 12-1230 for an hour or two. However this seems to have taken a step in the wrong direction, J doesn’t want to go down for a nap and will fight it for as long as possible, my mum even walked her round the block on Monday which finally sent her to sleep! After swimming on Friday morning my ladybug finally dozed off at 130pm and today after a long walk at the beach she finally gave in at 230pm!
I fear very soon I am going to lose that hour of sanity all parents with toddlers and newborns cherish…nap time is on it’s way out! What on earth am I going to do???
As her naps have been all over the place this weekend she has slept wherever, usually in the car, and even in my arms. This is so infrequent, I was terrified of falling asleep with her in my arms when she was a baby, so she always fell asleep on her play mat, cot or pushchair.
My little tornado of energy doesn’t really want to snuggle with mummy that often, so I jumped at the opportunity of a sleepy cuddle, and after a photo and staring at the beautiful little face in my arms, I fell asleep with my darling daughter.
