DS1 (2.7) seems to have abruptly dropped his nap (aargh). As a result, he is ridiculously tired and mardy by bedtime (and I'm knackered as I also have a 4mo to look after).
I was considering letting him watch a DVD after lunchtime so that he actually sits still for an hour. He watches ye traditional CBeebies but I tend not to have it on during the daytime -- in any case he gets frustrated at not being able to choose which programme is on! I wondered if he might enjoy picking a film to sit down and watch, but not sure what might be suitable.
Is he too young for Madagascar / Ice Age type thing? Any other recommendations?
No, at 2 mine had the attention span of gnats ! However a bit later the "Heffalump Movie" was watched a gazillion times (Disney Winnie the Pooh)! Ice Age was far too scary at that age. <<prays DS3 will continue with naps for ever a long time>>
DS loves Cars and Monsters Inc (I have a particular fondness for Monsters Inc because I watched it while I was in labour with him!) He can't watch a whole film though, only about 15 minutes at a time max.
