Nap Question

Hello Ladies,
    I have a problem I hope you can help me with. Cameron just turned 18 months today and for the last 2 weeks or so has started regressing when it comes to nap time. I used to put him in his crib with his blanket, stuffed tigger and baba and he would go down within an hour and sleep for at least two hours but now he's fighting it tooth and nail. He'll throw all his toys and blanket and even his baba out of his crib. For the most part he doesn't cry in there though he'll sit there and play with his feet and laugh but won't sleep. I try to keep him in his crib for as long as possible hoping he'll go down but sometimes he just won't and then of course around 5pm he gets crazy cranky! He wakes up every morning at 7am and goes to bed at 7pm so he's on a healthy schedule. 5pm is bedtime and then bathtime, we put on his Mickey Mouse Club house DVD for an hour and it's off to bed at night. I don't see why his naps are becoming an issue now all of a sudden. Is anyone else having problems with naps? If you are what are you doing to resolve it?

I was going to say maybe it was time to switch to one nap but I see that you already have, my son is on a similar schedule as far as sleeping and waking. There are few times when he doesn't want to nap at 12 and usually won't until 2 or 3 which means sleeping till 4 or 5 and being up till 8 or 9.

No real help here but I know what you are dealing with.

He's gone down at three pm a few times and woken up at 5pm. He still goes to bed by 7pm when he does that though. Some days he takes his naps but most he's a little buggar about it.

My niece went through a little phase when she was around 20 months where she just refused to nap. Luckily, it was just a phase and only lasted about two weeks. Maybe if you're lucky the problem will just solve itself?

It sounds like you've got a good routine going on... so I'm not quite sure what you should change. Maybe consider moving nap time an hour later or so and see if that makes a difference?

Sorry I don't have any brilliant advice. I'll let you know if I can think of anything. ;)
