    Default 33 month old toddler not wanting day sleep

    Is it too early for him to stop day sleeping? He will be 3yrs old in 3 months.

    My MIL was shocked yesterday avo when I said he didnt want to sleep, she said "He is too young not to sleep, he slept here and was in routine when he stayed" (When I left DS there while I gave birth to DS2)

    She made me feel like such a bad mother.

    I just tried now to put him to sleep and he jumped out of bed and said that he didnt want to sleep, I cant chain him to the bed!

    My pair have just turned 3 and gave up day naps about 4 months ago *pulls hair out*
    I'd say it's normal. Frustrating lol, but normal.
    Tell your MIL she's welcome to come around and put him to sleep herself.

    Totally normal. Out of three kids, only one was still having regular day naps at that age. My DS is 2 1/2 (just) and he stopped his day sleeps at 18 months (he'd have one or two a week, now it's about one every 1-2 weeks).

    My DD is 21 months and hasn't slept in the day for over a month, every child is different I guess.

    My DS1 stopped having a day sleep at 24 months- despite my best efforts! It just became torture for both him and I trying to get him to have a day sleep, so I just had to give up in the end... My DS2 still has 2 hours and he is 4. Each is different.

    Mine really varied :

    #1 had a day sleep until 4
    #2 had a day sleep until 15 months
    #3 had a day sleep until 2
    #4 had a day sleep until 3
    #5 is 17 months and I think getting ready to ditch her day sleep.
