The big sister on the other hand is a different story. She has gone five straight days without a nap. Last week she only napped a few days and not consecutively. Yesterday she was so tired she fell asleep at 4:45pm and slept until this morning. Still, she did not take a nap today. Again, she was ready to crash in the late afternoon. I kept her up until her normal bedtime in hopes that we would have better luck tomorrow.
How do I know when to let go and give up trying to get her to nap? She's gone on nap strikes before but they never lasted more than a day or two. I know she still needs the sleep. She's exhausted when she doesn't nap. Going to bed at 5pm every day is not a sustainable option since she likes to see her dad every now and again...
Any suggestions will be much appreciated. I feel like I've tried everything this week!
When did your children stop napping regularly?
