Hi can anyone please tell me how a day in the life with their 20 month old goes please....... I feel like my little girl is dropping her nap to early but also is hard to settle if I can get her to have one
Mine wakes about 6ish, breakfast 7ish out the house 8-11ish, lunch at 11, sleeps 12.15-2ish, out the house 2.3-5ish, tea at 5, bottle at 6.30, sleep about 7.30- wakes up about 3 times then morning again!!
Wakes 7ish, breakfast 7.30, lunch 12, nap 1-3ish, snack 4.30ish, dinner 6pm, milk 7.30, sleep by 8. Sometimes wakes in the night.
He's nowhere near dropping his nap - if he sleeps less than an hour he's awful the rest of the day.
Our typical day goes a little like this ....
Nap & lunch varies depending how tired she is. Nap 11-1 then lunch once up or lunch at 11.30 and nap 12-2ish.
However if we go out she doesn’t nap really other than the odd 10 mins in the car.
Then she watches a film either in my bed or downstairs and usually goes to bed around 7.30/8pm. Mostly sleeps through the night unless teething or unwell.
Naps can be a fight but I put her to bed say night night and leave the room. There’s nothing she can hurt herself on, all draws are child locked and I lock the windows. She has a baby gate on her bedroom so even if she opens the door she can’t get out. I leave her to do whatever it is she does until she eventually goes to sleep. If she’s crying I go up in 5 min intervals but she generally just plays then does to sleep.
