It is undeniable that helping your child to achieve daytime sleep can be a real challenge for some parents.

There are so many force factors that contribute to your child's sleep responsiveness, typically represented in many different ways.

Some parents may report that they just cannot get their child to take a nap, that they just refuse to sleep; others will report that the duration of the nap is only short; some may say that daytime sleep durations vary hugely in any given day/week, while others will observe that their child will only sleep in their arms, in the car or the buggy and point blank refuses their cot for day sleep.
