Can you help this mother?
"I am in need of nap time help! My 17-month-old seems to be transitioning from two naps to one. She is really resisting going to sleep even when I put her down for just an afternoon nap. She seems cranky almost all the time. Once she finally falls asleep, she will sleep for almost three hours, so I know she is tired. What does the nap time routine look like for your toddler? Is the crankiness because she still needs two separate naps, or is it just part of being an increasingly independent toddler?"
