Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

i have two 2 year old mindees - one will sleep 2 hours roughly 1-3pm and afaik it doesn't effect her night time sleep, the other will sleep maybe an hour max from around 1-2pm. i would struggle to put mine down much before 1 as we are so busy in the mornings and nearly always out.

Up until recently it was 10-30-12:30. But now he is trying to survive without it, and it's not going so well for him so it tends to be around 3.

ds is 2.2 at nursery he naps around 12:45 for an hour
at home on a weekend it tends to be later (a pattern over the last couple of months) so anywhere between 1-3 for around 2 hours (he'd sleep longer if we'd let him) It doesn't affect his night time sleep - other than I might put him down at 8 rather than 7 if he didn't get up til 4.30 (this is rare). He will still mostly do 12 hours at night.

12:30/1pm - 2:45pm in school time. Simialr, but slightly more flexible in holidays.

11.30 -12.30

my ds had given his nap up by then. Prior to that he went to sleep after lunch so probably about 12.30ish.

BeaWheesht Tue 05-Feb-13 14:10:18

Dd sleeps 1130-1330

I get mine to sleep at 1 ish for about an hour but just talking to a friend she said her dd is a nightmare at bedtime if she sleeps that late. What time do your early 2s sleep?
