 I am new to the group and have an issue with my ds sleeping.  he will be 3 in october and he still NEEDS a nap.  trust me he needs it.  if he doesn't nap he is a totally nightmare by 6 pm but i cant get him to settle down and sleep during the day.  i have tried just getting him to "rest" watching a movie and that doesn't work.  he doesnt want to stay in bed and stop playing with his toys long enough to sleep.  i also have a 12 weeks old so i have to attend to her while i am trying to lay him back in bed every 2 minutes.  we dont have any of these issues at night either

I just had a baby three months ago and also have a three year old (girl)! I have recently told my dd that as long as she stays in bed she can read but if she gets up, she is done. After about fifteen minutes, she's asleep! If she doesn't sleep she goes to bed at six that night=)
