New nap troubles


My baby girl is a little over 8 months now and was doing pretty well with her naps and getting herself to sleep. In the last week or so she started being able to push herself up into sitting from lying down. Now she often will sit up after I put her down for a nap and fight her nap so hard where as before she would fall asleep 5-10 min without much of a fuss.

I’m not sure if I should go in and lay her back down each time? Or just leave her and hope she falls asleep? I tried that yesterday and we went 2 hours before I gave up. Anyone else having similar problems?

She doesn’t do this with bed time, only with her 2 naps during the day (so far 😅)
