I'm back in the UK, so no longer in Bermuda.

My sons will be 3 next month. For the last 3 days he's dropped his 0.5 hr, mid day nap.
In the evenings he is clearly tired; but wont go to bed earlier; in fact he is even harder to put to bed and is going to sleep later! He will then sleep in, waking up 0.5 hr later than normal. This is a problem as he's at nursery 5 days a week and he's waking up too late to him to nursery on time. Plus a half hour longer evening would be nice.

Any help please.

How does he know what time it is? Just shift his bedtime earlier by 30 mins and tell him its bedtime.

He could be overtired, making bedtime/falling asleep more difficult. I agree that attempting a slightly earlier bedtime will probably help.

He goes to bed at the same time as his big sister
