And the last two days we've done away with naps and taken her to the park for several hours. She has been going to bed at 7ish and without any fuss. Food has been less of a struggle as well. Who knew cutting out the naps would make it so much easier!
It's certainly not always the answer, but worked wonders around here too! DD1 was DONE with naps at 3, and we were all much happier without them. We still have a 'chill' time after lunch where we relax.
