What do I do with the rest of today?!

DS 17mo usually sleeps 1.5 hrs at lunch. Today something woke him after 10mins and he would not go back to sleep. I sat Patton him for 45 mins but he just fidgeted and tossed and turned (while I sat there with tears steaming down my face - so so tired!!)

So now he's been plonked in front of waybaloo in hope of him getting some more rest.

No way he'll keep going til bedtime. - what should I do?!

Would he take a short nap in his buggy or car seat mid-afternoon just to keep him going?

I had thought of that... But it's raining... And also if he sleeps much past 230 he's a nightmare to settle at bedtime!

If I put him to bed at 6 will he wake up an hour earlier tomorrow?

DD would wake a bit earlier the next day if she went to be early, but I think it's worse if she's overtired going to sleep because she wakes up early then too, but still tired.
