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.

yeah i've basically let her get on with it this week (i drafted that post last week hahah) she's been going to bed at 7 mostly now rather than 8ish. I also forgot to mention she has a snack in the afternoon usually a bit of fruit or yoghurt coated rasins and she may have milk in the afternoon too. c

and that's the thing isn't it they say too much juice is bad for them... i dilute down diluted juice that's probably wrong too lol

my hv recommended flavoured water as an alternative to juice - Amy loves it.
