Share your tips on getting toddler to nap
I've got a high-needs toddler (2-1/2) and a high-needs 7 month old. They are now not napping at the same time. DS2 is always up at DS1's nap time. DS1 requires about 30 minutes of focused one-on-one attention to go down. DS2 prefers to be walked around in a carrier or very engaged by me when awake, so he is not happy to sit through a 30 minute ritual of me reading and laying down with his brother.
Anybody got any ideas?
I wish desperately that he would drop his nap. I enjoy him most days and the break in our day to "get him down" stresses me out, although I try not to let him see that. Days without a nap result in dinner-time meltdowns and night terrors.
