Ruby has given up naps.
(Lord help me!) After complaining about naptime woes here and here, and trying various suggestions and other things (including ideas from Elizabeth Pantley’s excellent No-Cry Nap Solution), Ruby has finally decided that naps just ain’t cool anymore.
I got this.I think she still needs a nap, because she will sometimes fall asleep in the car if we’re driving in the afternoons. The other day we found her cuddling with a stuffed dog under the sofa, fast asleep. But after an hour of music or white noise or reading or cuddling or whatever in a dark room she’s still not asleep, and mommy can’t devote an hour a day to the 2 year old’s nap. So she will join the other kids in the daily Quiet Time.
The good news is, she has begun potty training herself! I gave it a go a few months back, and it was a fail, so I packed it up to try again after things settled down with the new baby.
Two days in a row she has put her soft potty seat on the big commode, climbed up on it, and peed. All by herself with no suggestion or input from anyone else.
I’ve never been a fan of child led potty training, because I saw too many 4 year olds still in diapers with that method. But at 26 months? Fine with me!
