He has decided he doesn`t want to sleep in the day and just screams

Hi Maree
My son is 20mths old and sleeps well at night and usually for an 1 1/2 hours in the day. just recently he has decided he doesn`t want to sleep in the day and just screams, it went on for an hour the other day. He gets very grizzly by 5pm ish if he doesn`t sleep.
Thanks Marie

Answer: Hi Marie, He is telling you he doesn`t want this nap anymore so don`t make a battle out of it, have an early dinner prepared so he doesn`t end up with his head in the plate and remember each day won`t be the same during this transition period so be guided by tired signs. Cheers, Maree
