Ella hasn't had her daily nap for well over a week now. I've tried everything to get her to sleep but she fights it. She's nearly 18months now and runs around like a loony, climbs everywhere and must be exhausted but she doesn't seem to sleep enough... Has anyone else experienced this?
Also i'm not sure if i'm feeding Ella too much or too little really and was wondering if any of you had any advice. She is very tall for her age and the HV seems fine about her weight especially as i told her she eats alot of fruit and veg and i only allow her chocolate or crisps on rare occassions.

Here's an example of what she will have in a day. I've given two different sets to show the varity.

morning. porridge/cereal or one piece of wholemeal bread toasted and a cup of tea
mid morning. a piece of fruit and juice
lunch (depending on the time and who is looking after her.) omelette or a sandwich or chicken bits and juice
dinner tuna/chicken pasta and veg or steamed fish and mash/veg and a petit filou for afters.
night time drink of max milk about 9oz.

Oh and Amy is a bit of a nightmare for taking naps too.. She'll desperately need one (rubbing eyes, grizzling etc) but she'll try and fight it.. i'd say about 50% of the time I win as for some reason having her laid accross my legs whilst I rub her head/tummy is a sure way of getting her asleep hehe..

When she does nap she'll be down between 40 mins and 2 hours - if she has the 2 hours then we get her ready for bed a bit later (8/8:30pm rather than 7/7:30pm) and it usually works out quite well ;o)
