If your LO does morning only sessions at nursery - what do you do about the lunchtime nap?

DD will start nursery on 2 full days pw, but I think work will want me to go to 5 mornings soon, so I'm thinking she'll do 3 or 4 morning sessions at nursery (other 1 or 2 days with grandparents) and I'm wondering what happens in terms of the lunchtime nap if her nursery session ends at 1pm??

At the mo she tends to nap 9.30-11am and 2pm-3pm (she's 10.5mo) but I'm hoping that will consolidate into 1 long apres-lunch nap in a few months' time which will probably coincide with starting the morning-only sessions.

DD is a bit older, but has been doing two mornings a week at nursery since she was 1. She never naps at nursery, has lunch there, comes home at 1pm and usually has a 2 hour nap - it's great grin. On non-nursery days she tends to have 40mins in the morning and another hour in the afternoon.

Thanks issimma... A nap at home after nursery would be ok I guess - just makes me a bit sad that it will eat in to our precious afternoons together selfish mummy

Ah, you see I quite like it. I work from home and it means I can do a couple more hours without paying nursery fees!

I'll be working from home too but likely to be doing 6am-2pm to catch the Asia-PAC day... I guess I could use her nap time to catch up with housework go on mumsnet and general faffing and I suppose there would be a couple of hours after to take her to the park, go swimming etc!

8-1 at nursery then nap 1.30-3; leaving 4 hours until bedtime (did this until nearly 3) however by 2years could manage on 15 min nap so we could go to groups etc
