Just recently my 16-month old started resisting naptime. At first, it was just she would play in her crib before she fell asleep but that was fine. Now she screams and cries and throws her stuffed animals out of her crib. I wouldn't even mind that but my hubby works third-shift and sleeps in the same room during the day. She likes to throw her stuffed animals at him and wake him up.
I used to just rock her to sleep while I watched tv. But she would scream and fuss (I had just weaned her and she didn't want a bottle or sippy cup). And when the crib idea started to go south I set up her pack n play and attempted to get her to sleep in that but she would still scream loud enough to wake hubby up.
I don't know what to do. She's cranky when I attempt to forego a nap but hubby needs to sleep. Any ideas? Oh, and we don't have the space to move the crib out of our room.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
