Having gone through what I thought was the *end* of the nap twice, I'll say this... I would be persistent and try not to give in/ give up just yet. We went through a miserable month or so on two different occasions, and both times she has just come right back into napping every day without a fight. She will be 3 next month. Seriously, I thought it was over... We struggled with the "quiet time" too because not only could she not be quiet, but she completely rebelled against the idea of staying in her room without interacting with us, even for just a half hour. But we dealt with a daily battle for awhile, and she just started sleeping again... at first she'd look at books until she fell asleep, getting up periodically to "go potty" of course, and then soon enough she just forgot to ask for a book and said goodnight from a lying down position. Hope this helps... Good luck.
