Poorly toddler (2yo with diarrhoea) , we were out today and he fell asleep in the car around 2, came home and put him to bed.

He normally naps 2.30-5. Wakes up, has dinner, run around bath time bed.

He's still sleeping at 7pm! (and breathing, I checked!)

Should I let him sleep? DH and I disagree. I say wake him up, little bit of toast and bath then bed. DH says let sleepy babies lie he obviously needs it.

But I just wonder what will happen when he wakes up? I wouldn't feel right letting him have "wake up" time after it had turned dark?

I think I would let him sleep and have a rest myself. If he's poorly you will probably be up in the night anyway with possible d and v so he might as well get as much rest as possible.
Sleep is always the best medicine.

Always the way! At least you don't have to decide what to do now!

Do you ask to be woken up past your usual sleep time when you are ill?
