DS dropped his day sleeps a couple weeks back. He was refusing any day sleeps, even when they were pushed back later, I had no luck with getting him to sleep.

However, it seems to have made his night sleeps so much worse. It's almost like he still does need those day sleeps. instead what's happening is, he's partying every freaking night. I'm running next to no sleep. I'm tired. I'm exhausted. I don't need this. but i cannot seem to get him to sleep during the day. The only time he seems to pass out if I put him in pram and walk is around 2pm which is by then too late and if he sleeps then there's no hope for bedtime, which ends up being around 10-11pm and frankly, I really don't want to do that. not to mention both DH and I are up at 5am due to work commitments. so he really needs to go to bed either at 8pm with his sister if he sleeps or 5pm if he skips a day sleep.

Does anyone have any tips on this? DD was much smoother when it came to dropping day sleeps. DS, well, he's not as easy as his sister!

The transition is the pits! I used to drive DD around, but that advice is useless for you. Can you try for a nap every 2nd or 3rd day? DD did that for quite a while, it seemed to be a mechanism to help her catch up.

We did every 2nd or 3rd day also to help with the transition.
