    DS is 13 months and he has one day sleep. Sometimes I'll give him a big morning tea around 10.30 and put him down at 11. Then when he wakes up I'll give him a sandwich. On other days I'll give him lunch around 11/11.30 and then put him down. I find the more I give him to eat, the longer he sleeps. There's no rule that they must eat meals like us at the allotted times. Nothing wrong with a sandwich for morning tea and then fruit, cheese etc when they wake. They're still getting the same food within a day, maybe just in a different order.

    The adjustment to 1 sleep can take a while but she'll get into a workable routine in no time. Good luck with it all!

    Thankyou

    My dd transitioned to 1 sleep at 11 mths. I woyld put her down at 11 am and that was stretching it. She was too tired to sit in a high chair & have lunch so i gave her a bottle a 11am to tied her through, wit m/tea at 10ish.She is now 16 mths & goes down at 11.45 still with a bottle but lunch at 11. (i could drop the botyle but i dont want to, i enjoy our cuddle & she likes it)My dd also chats for about 30 mins before falling asleep.She sleeps about 2.5 hrs its great! We didnt have success on 2 sleeps
