    After weeks of forcing naptime, and late bedtimes, I've spent the day leaving Caitlyn to her own devices. She knows how to say nap, and I have kept asking her, yet here we at at 6.23pm and there's not even a yawn yet!

    She just won't sleep, she's so hyperactive. She was up untill 11pm last night, and up at 7. It's knackering me. She cries when I try and get her to sleep in the day. I can't force it anymore it's making us both upset :(

    I've always heard the opposite that boys are much more active, but maybe that's it they are just wearing themselves out more or something lol. But whatever works for her is what you should do! :D

    Yeah, she always wants to be doing something. No time to wind down. Even now she's playing with her animals :lol:

    Char is doing the same thing. Can't be bothered to take a nap. She DID have one today, from 4-6pm, but she'll only take them if she practically passes out and then she doesn't want to go to sleep till late that night and sleep late the next morning!

    Mine is currently sleeping 9pm to 9am although some nights he goes to bed at 10 or 11pm. I dont worry too much as when they are toddlers their sleeping times and needs changes quite often.
