My 2 1/2 year old seems to have dropped her daytime naps and now she goes up and sleeps from 7pmtill 8am sometimes 8.30am which is fine

But she is so cranky at 6.30 so I'm wondering if I should take her to bed at 6.30 and hopefully she will wake at 7.30 or 8.

We are now running late for groups and clubs

What do you think ?

I should add she is tired by this time and her behaviour is atrocious all I seem to do between 6.00 and 7 is shout and tell her off

Try it and see what happens? I have a 9 month old who's just transitioning from 3 to 2 naps a day and I can't work out the timings so I feel your pain! Good Luck!

Why not give her a new routine, something like afternoon snuggles and a story while she lays snuggled up with her dolly/teddy, and you read to her and hopefully she will be relaxed and will drift off and have a nap,

And if you repeat it every day she will get into the routine of that being her new nap timegrin

Oh I know the feeling, my DS is the same age and won't nap, he's in bed for 7/7.30

But his behaviour when he's tired is exhausting sad

Well she went up at 6.30 and was out straight away . And woke at 7.45 so I think I'll do the same tonight

My 2.5 year old hasn’t napped for 6 months and sleeps 6.45-7.15. Works for us!

If shes obviously tired then, put her to bed then. Easy!
