I am not such a nice mommy on these days.<br><br>
Please not not reply and tell me about it if your DC is one of those that takes 2+ hour naps! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hammer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hammer">

Ok! That OP was sure vent-y and <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/censored.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="censored">-y .Thanks for letting me get it out!<br><br>
Does anyone else deal with the short/non-existent naps? Any survival strategies?

My DD is doing that today. She slept for 5 minutes in the car and is now playing in her crib. I doubt she will go to sleep, which means a long, crabby evening.<br><br>
I don't really have any advice. I don't know what to do either. I need a break.

It's feast or famine here. Either 2-3 hours or nothing at all. Today it was nothing, and my tired, pregnant body NEEDED a nap. Needless to say, I have not been a very nice mommy today.

my dd has been doing this. she lays for awhile in her room and then starts calling me and saying she's all done. I cannot entertain her the entire day without her nap break!

those short naps are torture! i work 3rd shift a few nights a week and really need my naps. i'm up for about 36hrs straight with only my dd's naptimes to get any sleep. somewhere in there will be 2- 45 min naps. i would feel so much better if they were longer naps!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/treehugger.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Treehugger">: (i love this happy face)

I understand. DS WAS a 2 hour napper and for the past month has gone down to 20-30 minute naps...and lately no nap at all! He's only 21 months! its KILLIN' ME b/c i am NOT sleeping at night with this pregnancy (maybe 3 hours) and i am so drained and dillusional...i miss my napping baby boy!!!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> i thought they took naps until 3 years old at least. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
no advice, just empathy.
