If a child is on a mat, that's a whole different ball game. I sit next to them and keep them laying down until nap is over. In this case, 99% of the time they go back to sleep.

Once he figures out nap time is nap time he will stop protesting. Usually takes between a week to two weeks.
Heís part-time too so itís become a problem. Itís pretty clear heís picked up any time he makes a peep at home. I swear even though he canít talk it sounds like heís just yelling ďHEY! HEYYYY!Ē for 40 minutes. Drives me crazy!!

hwichlaz A. because in a few short months he'll need to be on a mat or cot and there won't be a mesh wall containing him.

Unregistered If you have a child standing up in a pack n play yelling and whining, not crying, but itís not keeping the other kids in the room from sleeping, would you:

A: Keepgoing in and laying him down until you win the battle. This can take some time and gets him worked up each time, but eventually he stays put.

OR

B. Leave him alone to hollar until he gets bored and goes to sleep. This also takes some time.

Iíve tried both scenarios. I have to say that option B is easier on me and doesnít seem to disturb the others much. But should I spend the time and effort teaching him my desired behavior of laying down when placed in bed, or just choose my battles? Heís 14 months old.
