I have a 3 y/o that quit napping at 2! Sorry momma but it does make it much harder to get anything done!

Yikes! That would be rough at age 2!

I don't mind him being up during the day; it is actually nice to get some one-on-one time with him; it's the Jeckyl and Hyde thing that's getting me! He is a monster when he's not well rested.

If he wasn't such a mess without the nap I would be fine with it...and he actually doesn't really fight the nap, it's bedtime that he fights...

Just keep repeating "This too shall pass". With all my kids it just seemed to be something that they needed to work through. We stayed home a lot when each went through that transition.

LOL Back when I had trouble just getting them TO nap at all, and then when they transitioned to one nap a day...I kept saying to myself, "they'll be 4 someday and not nap at all..." Little did I realize that THAT wouldn't be much easier.

How long was the transition? We are going on one week without naps, and I'm planning on having him nap tomorrow b/c he is just an absolute mess. I normally give up after 2-3 days, but I thought maybe I needed to give it more time...but really his behavior is atrocious compared to normal; just wondering if I should stick it out or get back to napping.
