Nap Time Help!! hi puddin 4 kids; Lawrence, Kansas 2118 posts
3rd May '13

I'm at my wits end with this. I'm a SAHM with a soon to be 4 and 1 year old. Lately the oldest has been refusing naps. His room is located upstairs with 2 other bedrooms (his older brother and sister) he will get up and run around and get in their rooms. He's mastered the baby gates and somehow mastered the childproof door knob covers. (those things are hard for me!:-p) Any who my youngest is a very light sleeper UGH! so I constantly have to be rocking her in her rocker/bouncer for her to sleep the whole nap time and every time I get up to get after her brother, she immediately wakes up so I have to rock her back to sleep again ..Then her brother needs to go to the bathroom so he comes down here to the bathroom and wants me to take him back to bed. I've told him numerous times I can't because I'm rocking his sister...so he keeps asking me getting louder and louder each time...



Long story short...nap time for her is cut down to 20 minutes and he never falls asleep.



Today I put mat on the floor and a blanket and he's now getting loud with me to go look at his poop and of course she's awake and won't go back to sleep.



BTW he poops every day during nap time and won't do it any other time....Now I have to go deal with a sleep deprived baby...



Please any suggestions would be helpful.....
