I'm pretty sure my two year olds lack of naps are what are causing the sleep issues at night. She is so over tired that she is just generally a mess. She wakes up numerous times a night screaming. When I try to comfort her she does not even realize that I am there half of the time. She will keep asking for me even if I am holding her. I try to just comfort her and get her back to sleep. This happens between 3 and 7 times a night now. So neither of us are sleeping much.
She still NEEDS a nap, badly. I've even tried to just get her to have quiet time if she won't nap. But she is just so busy that she doesn't calm down and relax at all in that time. I'm not sure what to do go get her to nap at this point. It doesn't matter how early she wakes up or how busy we are during the day. She still won't nap.
Has anyone dealt with this? Any advice on napping and/or sleep terrors?
