DS is 14mo and usually has a short nap at 9-9.30am and a longer one at 1pm-ish.
Lately he's been messing about and difficult to get down for the second nap, so I thought perhaps it was time to move to one (DS1 dropped to one at about this age) - BUT he seems to really need an early morning nap. He wakes at 7am so not that early, but always goes to sleep really easily at 9am, sometimes earlier.
He won't make it though the day on just a morning nap though - what to do?
DS ended up only needing one morning nap - was usually asleep before 11am. He did start off with the 9am nap and the 1pm one, but just pushed the morning one later and later and it was the afternoon one that got phased out.
It's useful to have it that way round if you can manage it - gives you a bit of time before lunch, and you've got the whole afternoon free to do stuff.
He is walking, and today we'd been to toddler group in between nap and lunch! I think (hope) it's an anomaly...I'll see what happens tomorrow and if he's still a pain to get to sleep in the afternoon I'll have a re-think
My 3.5yo sleeps like a log, still naps for as long as he can get away with after lunch and goes to bed at 7pm no problems, even if he's just played indoors all afternoon!
