GAH My children are driving me BONKERS!!

I am at a loss as to what to do. My 7 month old takes 3 naps a day. One in the morning, afternoon, and evening. If she doesnt get those naps she is FUSSY!! But ALyson will NO let me put her down for a nap. OMG I get her to sleep and aly does EVERYTHING she can to wake her up. I'm going crazy over here with a two year old that wont listen and a fussy 7 month old. lol

have you tried playdoh or water play? give her something sensory to do--it will keep her hands busy and be calming for her at the same time. it might not last long, but its something, right! sand is good too. getting outside helps us a LOT here. doesn't seem like there is enough room in a house for toddler energy some days.

Can you put the baby in a room by herself for naps so your 2 year old cannot bother her? Then, you can work with your 2 year old by herself during that time (and work on getting her down for 1 nap a day, preferably, for you, at the same time as the baby's afternoon nap.) And ditto what the pp said about activity and time outside. My kids do much better if they've worked off some energy!
