    Hi Elen,

    Sorry I have some more questions.

    1. When you leave the bedroom do you shut the bedroom door?

    2. When you say that it takes 30 – 60 minutes for her to fall asleep, is she mostly happily playing in her crib? Is she content or upset? You just mentioned that she doesn’t cry much, so I’m wondering if she is just playing during this time.

    3. When you say she doesn’t sleep, is she going the whole day without having a nap? Or does she fall asleep later?

    4. How many days of the week does she have a nap?

    5. Last week, I mentioned recording the time she falls asleep for each nap. Did you have time to do this?

    6. Do you have a video baby monitor in her bedroom? I’m just wondering if there’s a way you could see if she is awake without needing to go into her room.

    Also not sure if this is helpful, but a bowel reflex occurs 20 – 30 minutes after eating. So if she’s pooping during naptime, it might be worth looking at the timing of her lunch or morning tea. If it happens 20 – 30 minutes before nap time, then it increases the chances that she may poop. The options to address this are to move naptime an hour after the meal or move the meal earlier in the morning.
