Long nap - same bed time as usual?

DD is 2.

A week ago I copied a friend and starting putting her to bed at 6.30 (instead of 7.30). To my delight and shock it worked, and she now has an earlier bed time!

She went down for nap today at 1.30 and is still asleep, at.3.30. She's always dreadful if I wake her, so I'll leave her be. But should I still put her to bed at 6.30?

She has been tired today, and was up at 5.30am for a poo (tmi).

I think I'd try..or maybe go for 7?

What's your bedtime routine like? I'd probably aim for 630, but then if she didn't seem tired drag out story time?

I would have woken her and put up with the grumpiness for a while to keep the routine going.

I think routine is more important that the clock when she looks tired enough for bed start your usual bed time routine if you put her to sleep to early when she's not tired it could end up a fight.

Thanks everyone. She went to sleep at her usual bed time!
