Do you need daytime sleep for children after 2 years of age, preschoolers

Recently, one question has begun to torment me: Does a child over the age of 2 need a daytime sleep? The fact is that since it was warm to our city, my two-year-old daughter has refused to sleep during the day!

As it usually happens

Last week I unsuccessfully try to lay a crumb day, but every time all my actions have no result. It usually happens like this. I get up at 6 o’clock, my daughter rises at 7. We go for a walk at 11-12 o’clock, and this is not a small walk in the carriage. First, my child is worn in the yard, then we follow the elder sister to school.

After that, she flatly refuses to go home, because sees that other children are still walking. At three o’clock I still persuade her to go to eat. We eat and I try to create a peaceful atmosphere for it. We drink milk, I talk to my daughter in a low voice. We go to bed and read books. Usually after that the child sleeps, but not now!

What I just do not do: and I close my eyes (by the way, after that I chop off myself), and I try to take her in my arms and shake, all to no avail! About an hour, we are so tormented, then I give up, and my daughter already drags me his pants with shoes to go for a walk.

As you understand, I myself am tired of such a bustle. I do most of the household chores during my afternoon nap, and it turns out that I carry them over for the evening. I put my daughter to bed at 21 o’clock, and I still try to do everything planned for the day before 23 o’clock.

Why do we need daytime sleep?

I am deeply convinced that a small child should sleep during the day. What is a dream? Sleep is the restoration of the nervous system, as well as the period when the whole body rests. The nervous system of the child is not yet formed and therefore can not resist the loads. Placing the day for a couple of hours, the child digests the information received in the morning and rests to run around the street again in the evening.

Reasons for not sleeping during the day


Upon reflection, I identified several reasons that may prevent my daughter from sleeping:

  1. Lack of sufficient load in the morning. So it was in winter, when it was too cold outside for full walks and for dinner the baby did not have a dream in one eye.
  2. The child is over-excited. It seems to me that this is our case. A large number of Lyalya, with whom I want to talk, the sun, interesting games in the sandbox and on the site – all this is stupid for my daughter.
  3. Passion for any game. When a baby is very much carried away with something, it can be difficult to tear him away from this activity.

How to put a child

For me, this question remains open. As I wrote above, we are doing everything so that the child can switch from action to a quiet pastime. But there is no result yet.

P.S. The funny thing is that just today my baby fell asleep right at the table. Apparently, she was tired of resisting, she decided to give up her position and make her mom happy 🙂 Maybe this was facilitated by a four-hour walk, maybe it was the rain that just went outside. I hope that this will become a habit for my daughter.

Do you think it is necessary to make the child sleep during the day?
