My oldest son is 2.75 and since his brother was born 8 months ago, naps have been sporadic, mostly when he is completely exhausted or when I am able to nurse him to sleep (which is very rare these days). So, a while ago we started quiet time where I read to him, nurse him if I can, and the he is supposed to lay in his bed and can look at books but not have toys for at least 30 minutes.<br><br>
For a while that worked to at least give him some down time but lately he's been having more and more tantrums and this is one routine that he is fighting.<br><br>
I'm looking for suggestions on how you do quiet time for an older toddler? How long? what do you do? How do you get them to stay in bed without a fight?<br><br>
