I don't think I am any good at baby naps, never really cracked it for my DD & now DS seems to be even more trouble. He is 15 months & I think is ready for 1 nap aegis morning nap is getting later & later & sometimes is so later doesn't manage an afternoon nap. For the last 2 days I have tried putting his down after lunch which he had did OK with but woke screaming after 45 mins. I settled him back but for only another 30 mins. When I did this change with DD she went to a good 2 hours straight away. Does this mean he isn't ready?

Maybe your not putting him down soon enough and he's overtired so not getting over the first sleep cycle? My dd is 11 months and attempting to drop down to 1 so I'd say he is ready

Have you tried putting him down around midday rather than after lunch? My DD is 13mo and at the point where some days she has two shorter naps (morning and afternoon) and other days she is raring to go in the mornings and only has one longer nap in the middle of the day. On those days, I give her a big snack (fruit, cheese and some milk) around 11am, then she sleeps at around 11:30 and wakes around 1:30, and has lunch then.
