My DS has had nap issues the past few days too, but I think it's because he has a cold (which he of course gave to me
). Today, he actually slept. Thankfully, he just reads books and plays in his room if he doesn't want to sleep. He might fuss towards the end, just before he falls asleep, but it's not full out crying or anything.
He also figured out how to use the doorknob last week, so I put the child proof cover on it, and that worked like a charm. Phew! I had tried locking the door, but he figured out how to unlock it too.
Today, he just played/read books for about 20-30 minutes, then took a good 3 hour nap again. Oh it was heaven! Yesterday, he played for about 2 hours, and then I had to go get him as he was hitting the fussy stage, because I knew if he fell asleep at 4pm, he'd not wake up until 7pm, which is his bed time!
One thing that has helped is to get him down a little earlier. Not sure why, but he seems to be needing to nap earlier than he used to. Doesn't make any sense to me, but hey, they're toddlers! He's 27 months old, btw.
