    Default Dropping day sleeps

    Hi Ladies,

    My DD is 20mnths normally she has 1day sleep for about 2.5hrs, but the past week she has either cut it down to 20-40mins or just none at all. I was wondering what age everyones bubs dropped a say sleep. She isn't ready, by 3pm she is so cranky and ends up in bed an hr early. I'm not ready for her to drop that sleep, i need 5mins to myself lol.

    thanks

    Could you push the time of the sleep back a bit so she is more tired/likely to sleep?

    Default Dropping day sleeps

    My little guy is 4.5 and although I could still give him a sleep I choose not to as I'm getting him ready for prep next year where he needs to manage his energy better as they don't sleep at school. I stopped this when he turned 4 and attempt to
    Put him to bed earlier to compensate. He sleeps from 730pm-730am

    Default Dropping day sleeps

    At that age bubs usually require 12-13hrs sleep on avg per day. We shortened our 2yo night sleep to 10-11 hrs so as to get 2-2.5hr day sleep.

    On dropping the nap completely- I can honestly say at 28yo I have always get a nap at least 4-5 days a week. My 16yo cousins still nap daily after school it is not necessarily long ie 30-40min but its great!

    It may just be a cultural thing tho and not ideal for everyone.

    Today I got a 2hr sleep in between my 2yo and my 2mth old

    You're lucky. My 13 mth DD has refused day naps the last two days and I'm so exhausted. She's never been a sleeper, but I was hoping I'd get another year before cutting out naps altogether. She cut out 2 naps at about 7 months.
