What is my advice on my advice on getting a toddler to sleep or take a nap? I would say wear them out. I'd I would much rather be in a position where I don't want them to fall asleep than trying to get them to fall asleep. I personally exhaust them. I'll take them to the playground, I'll let them run around. You know, being at home all day and letting the t.v. babysit them isn't going to get me anywhere. The other thing that I really do is try to make sure they have a full stomach. Between exhausting them and that, I can usually get them to conk right out. If that doesn't work I also try to add some white noise. We have a giraffe or a bear that provides some background noise that really helps out a lot.
