hello dd 2.5yrs and still has a nap after lunch of about 30 -40 mins but am finding increasingly that she does not want to go to bed until at least 8pm if not later and is getting more reluctant to go to bed. I'm guessing this means she is ready to drop the nap? However yesterday when I picked her up from the childminders at 5pm she had not slept all day and literally couldn't keep her eyes open and came home and passed out on the settee!!! Anyone got any thoughts?!!!
wow you lot are quick! The quiet time might work am thinking about getting very strict about how long she sleeps for maybe like a max of 20mins, although eaiser said than done as more often than not am very glad of a bit of peace and quiet when she is asleep! Silvertongue did they still go to bed on time?!!!
2.5 or so. Last Christmas/New Year. Daily routine all different cos of the holiday so on a few days she had no nap and never really went back to it except on the odd occasion e.g. in the car. Not done it for months now.
DS is 3.6 and still really needs a nap (and all but two of his classmates at nursery (who are mostly a couple of months older) still nap, too). Nursery has been cutting it down gradually, though (they say that they've never known a class like it for napping).
Hi girlefriend, DS1 is 2.7 and just cut out his afternoon nap last week, very suddenly - like you though I think we're in a bit of a transitional stage as he is v v tired by tea time but will usually have a catnap in the late afternoon if we're out an about in the car - I'm thinking it might take a couple of weeks for his body clock to adjust?
