How long does your 21 month old sleep? My boy is having trouble going to sleep at night. He still defo needs his nap cos he goes down so easy at lunchtime (around 12.30) and I have to wake him after 1.5hrs and he’s really grumpy... then I put him to bed about 7.45/8 but he really resists for hours. It hasn’t been long that it’s been like this so I’m hoping it’s just a phase but just needs some reassurance!!

What time does he wake up?

What happens if you don't wake him after his nap? Just wondering if he's perhaps a bit overtired.

Anywhere between 7.30-8.30

If I don’t wake him he’s running riot at 9-10!

At that age mine was an earlier nap (around 11:30 - 1) then asleep by 7. Slept until anywhere between 6-7.

By 2.5 he wasn't napping at all anymore

I should say, he’s not unhappy! Just chattering to himself!

I'd try no nap and 6.30pm bedtime.

Have you tried putting him to bed earlier?

I only say this because I've found that 1830 is the magic bedtime for my daughter (22 months). She sleeps the longest if she goes to bed then, and wakes around 0830. She has about a 2 hour nap starting between 12 and 1 depending on our morning.

When she was going/ goes to bed later than 1900 she doesn't sleep as well or as long at all.

Mines always been an early riser so up at 6/6.30, napped at 12.30 for an hour and half at that age and bed 7/7.30pm depending on how active the day was.

What time does she wake up in the morning? X

Not sure if you mean me but my daughter generally does:

1830 - 0830 overnight

1230 - 1430 nap

All give or take 15 minutes or so.

If she's had a crap nap/ no nap (which happens sometimes if she's teething or if we're out), I try to get her in bed at 6

My 2 year old naps for 1-2 hours then sleeps solidly from 8pm - 6amish.

My DS is 21 months and he's hit and miss with his sleep. He tends to go to bed for 7, wakes between 6:30-7am, and naps 12:30pm for up to 1.5 hours usually.

He's usually pretty good at going to sleep soon after 7, but it can be hit or miss, and he often still wakes in the first few hours after going to bed and needs to be settled back to sleep.

Could you try an earlier nap? Mine wakes around 6.30, naps maybe 11-1 then happily in bed by half 7. Thats on a good day! On an excellent day she then sleeps through the night. However she's currently in our bed and only been asleep for 10 mins, we have a night like this nearly every week so clearly my routine has its flaws!
