Got into a really bad habit of laying with my little girl while she went off to sleep then transfer her to own room for the night. It used to work really well & was lovely snuggly time but for a few weeks it has been progressively more difficult to get her to relax. She either bobs up & climbs all over me, sticking fingers up my nose, or tries to stand up at the headboard, just won't lay still. So I started trying to put her down in her own bed, figuring i would read up on gradual retreat. However, despite me sticking to established nap times, she often still won't sleep. Sometimes she will be so drowsy I think it's surely in the bag, but after 5 mins she'll either sit up to chatter & play, or she will gradually go into real meltdown. So I end up relenting and am currently tapping this question into my phone in the hope that someone can point me in the right direction. I feel she is too young to be going to only 1 nap per day. Am I wrong? 2,3,4 was working so well for a while, what happened?!
