If Daughter is in her crib alone, she'll fight sleep with the best of them about 1/2 the time. Sometimes, if we time it just right, she'll drift peacefully off to sleep. But other times we miss the cues or take to long to get her in there and then she is a tenth degree black belt in sleep fighting.
Yesterday the afternoon nap was that way. I started trying to put her down when she was rubbing her eyes at 3. She fought it... got her out of her crib at 3:15 and couldn't actually get a nap out of her until 4:45.
Her naps are usually only 30-45 minutes. But I'm not going to complain,
because she normally sleeps 12 hours at night. Usually with one wake
up to nurse, but still- 12 hours is awesome!
She stayed with Grandma and Papa over New Years eve and visited some relatives. She was very tired New Years night! Generally Mat gives her a bottle of pumped milk and then we do devotions and I nurse her to sleep. She fell asleep during the bottle!
