Is he poorly or just tired?

DS2 is 4 and napped today 11.50-1.20. Normally he naps 12.50-2.50 but I put him down earlier as he had his visit to school this afternoon.

He has barely eaten his fish and rice, left a chocolate cake and keeps asking to go to bed.

He has his pyjama top on and is sat with me under a blanket.

No talking, really quiet.

Feels warm.

I'd say poorly. I'm amazed he still has a nap at 4 years old. I wish my dd did!

DS1 still napped when he started school. grin

He has perked up a bit now DH is home.

My dd2 (5 and a half) fell asleep when she came home form school today (2nd last day before holidays)

She's knackered - I think that is all it is!

I suppose it is not like him to turn down a whole chocolate cake. Nor is it like him to ask to go to bed at 4.30pm.

Have you tried giving him some Calpol and seeing if he perks up in half an hour? Especially if he feels hot?

He hasn't got a proper temp, nor has he complained of pain so no Calpol but I think he will be okay with a good sleep. He hasn't really moved from my side but has had some milk.
