My kid is 23 months old and turns 2 in 2 weeks. She is able to sleep at night on her own since we used the cry-it-out method late last year. She usually has one 1.5-2 hour nap after lunch. However, she has been refusing to nap in her crib for the last 2 days. She can't go to sleep on her own for her naps so I have to hold her for about 10 minutes before putting her in her crib. It used to work but the past 2 days, she'll sleep in my arms but will wake up the minute I put her down.
Anyone else faced this or know how I can help her to nap in her crib again?
We recently came back from a 4 day overseas trip. On that trip she napped, but the timings were not the same. However, the 2 days after we came back, she was able to nap fine. So I'm not sure if the issue is caused by the trip or a 2 year old sleep regression. I'm under the impression that a sleep regression is refusal to sleep. However, she's not refusing to sleep. Just wakes up when I put her down.
Update: She stayed asleep for her nap when I put her in her crib on Sun and Mon. Thought I was out of the woods, unfortunately I was wrong. Last 2 days I couldn't put her down so I tried cry it out. First day she cried for 50 minutes napped for 40 minutes. Woke up crying. Second day cried for 50 minutes and napped for 50 minutes. Woke up crying. Anyone know if the duration will get longer and she will not wake up crying? She didn't wake up crying when I used to put her down. And her naps used to be longer.
