Still napping - what should I do?

Dd (1) is unwell at the moment and has been napping since 4.15pm...I was going to let her nap til 5pm then wake her up (as her bedtime is 7pm). She usually has an afternoon nap and up by 2-3pm.

Shall I let her sleep as she's unwell or is 45mins-an hour extra nap enough to tide her over til bedtime in 2 hours?

My own position is more or less never to wake a sleeping baby and that goes double for when they're ill.

Even DD who's 3.6 I let go from 12-3.45 today because it's the first day back at nursery school and she's knackered - I know from experience that it won't affect her bedtime and she's better off with the sleep.

Thank you zuleika...what about it being so late though? I wouldn't mind at all if it was during the day but its so close to bedtime....

I'd give her another 15 minutes or so at least. How's her eating at the moment with being ill?

Eating is same as before - pretty bad, but I've not pushed the issue as shes been so poorly.
