These past few days my dd will not nap. She is fussy whiney tired as hell but refuses to sleep. What can I do? I posted in another group but get the "just let her cry". I refuse to do CIO. Never have, never will do it. She's 13 months and has always slept. I'm losing my mind.

I just managed to nurse her to sleep. She's been fighting the boob, too lately. She only wants it when she wants it.

My 14 month old did the exact same thing about a month ago. I was at a loss then one day he got back on track. It lasted about 2 weeks. Hang in there hopefully it is just phase like it was for us :)

teething? I was recently reminded that they get molars around a year. i think that's what we're going through :(

DD just turned 13 months yesterday, I think It's the age.

With DD I just keep laying her down, she stands up and starts crying. I lay her down again. She cries for a minute, go do it again. LOL.

Then she falls asleep because she knows I'm not letting her get up and play. IDK my DD is stubborn, if she knows I'll let her get up, she won't go to sleep.

That can be very frustrating :(
I also don't agree with CIO. It could definetly be teething, new milestone etc. I would try walking, nursing, rocking, car ride? Hopefully it'll just be a quick phase.

you could get gripe water which may take care of tummy or teething issues that you may not see. its a natural antacid that works at keeping the tummy settled and in turn calms the baby!!

She doesn't even want to nurse to sleep. She does at night. She randomly pulls at my shirt but when its nap time she isn't having it even though she's tired.
