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.

We had same issue with Amy re water but the hv recommended flavoured water... Morrisons do some in 500ml bottled (5 for 1.50) orange, lime and lemon, strawberry, blackcurrant) Amy loves them all and takes plenty.

You need to watch the sugar content in some flavoured waters though, some of them are shocking!

I'll have to have a look for those ones, I used to give Abbie the Asda flavoured water til my friend who is a dentist, told me about all the hidden sugars and scared me off!

we tried the fruit shoot h20's and she wasn't keen. I've tried tescos flavoured water too.. she just isn't interested. So we basically dilute the diluted stuff so it's just a tiny amount of juice... she's a thirsty little girl always asking for juice which is why mum tried her with tea. If she kept drinking milk instead she'd end up putting on too much weight etc...
