FTM here...My LO is one who fights his sleep. I mean, his eyes will be rolling back and then he'll start fussing. Sometimes I'll stay persistent and continue to rock him or let him fuss for a few seconds and continue trying to get him to sleep. Today, i just don't have the energy plus I needed a timeout to eat something. Anyway, is he fighting it b/c he's too tired or not tired enough and not ready to sleep? What's better? Letting them play and stay awake until they're just so pooped that they dose off or making them take a nap b/c you know they need it? What's better for nighttime sleep--a day of play and not so much sleep or a restful day with some play?
My LO is 5 months old. What's the norm?
