My dd 16 mo has never been a big napper. She was sleeping 1hr at 10am and then 40mins-1hr at about 2.30pm/3pm then bed at 7.30am.

I decided to try the 2-1 nap transition for a couple of reasons-
1. dd never really seemed tired at nap times
2. She won't sleep in pushchair so was having to rush back from wherever we were for pm nap which was often just 40mins!
3. She started waking at 5.30am.

Anyway, we are 3 days in now and I don't know if I should continue or go back to the 2 naps.

Day 1 - nap 12.30-1.45, in bed 6.30, asleep by 7pm woke at 7am. Great!
Day 2 nap - 12.35-1.55 in bed asleep by 7. Woke and moaned on and off from 6ish.
Day 3 - nap 12.30-2.30 (stirred at 1.45). Bed asleep by 7.10pm - moaned on and off through the night. Awake from 1.30-3.30am!! Moaning on and off from 6am. Fully awake at 6.45am.

Does this sount like OT? Even though she slept for 2hrs at nap time? Should I go back to naps or just persevere with the 1 nap and she will eventually get into this new routine?

She is my PFB so not sure if this is what usually happens at 2-1 nap transition or not.

Thanks for all your help.
