To nap or not to nap

My 21 month old has recently stopped napping in the day, he will nap if we go out in the pram, he can't resist it but otherwise he won't sleep.
I don't think he is quite ready to drop his nap as he still gets very cranky pre tea time but trying to get him to nap is so stressful I just can't do it anymore 😬😬
On the days he doesn't nap he will sleep from 6.30 til 8 but if he does nap he won't go to bed til 7 and be up at 6.30,
So what would you do? Try to get him to sleep or just deal with the crankiness knowing he will sleep longer at night?

If it were me....deal with crankiness and get a better night.

If it was me I'd deal with establishing nap time. I just cannot be doing either tired, grumpy, clingy or whiney children- I've too much to do and my house too busy to faff with kids in a bad mood due to lack if sleep.

To add to the story I also have an 8 week old baby who is still feeding around the clock and I just don't have the time to spend with the toddler that he needs to fall asleep, if I just put him down in his bed he will scream.
I just don't know what to do for the best, either way is very stressful. At the moment I just put his blanket on the sofa around the same time every day while I sit down and feed baby, he will come over and lie on it and sometimes fall asleep but most of the time just prat about 😩
