    DD is 3 1/2 and naps a few times a week, more if we've had a very active week. Regardless, she will be in bed by 7.30-8pm and wakes up at 7am. If she sleeps more than a few hours though she'll be awake much later, but we still have her in bed at the same time. She just talks to her dolls for an hour or so!

    My DD is pretty much the same. She started refusing to nap a few months ago (grrr...!) but still desperately needs it. On the off-chance that she has had a nap, bedtime will be between 7.30 & 8pm. If she hasn't slept, she usually turns into a prize ratbag by 4.30pm so I try to have her in bed around 6.30pm...so I can sit on the couch and nurse a bottle of whisky to calm my nerves! (I wish - BFing her baby brother, so only the smallest tipple for me!)

    My DD is 3 next month. She wakes between 6am - 7am sometimes 5am (if my husband is making to much noise getting ready for work), doesn't have a day nap and goes to bed at 6.30pm, 7.00pm at the very latest.

    My DD turns 3 next month. She wakes between 6am - 7am, sometimes as early as 5am (generally if DH is making lots of noise getting ready for work), she doesn't have a day nap and goes to bed at 6.30pm, 7pm at the latest.

    Thanks for your replies. If my ds doesn't sleep, he'll go to bed around 7pm. However if he has 1-2 hour sleep (rarely), he struggles to fall asleep. Sometimes he is still awake at. 830/9pm tossing and turning. I don't encourage a day sleep, but sometimes after a big morning he will flake it.

    My DD doesn't have a day sleep, is feral by 3pm, and goes to bed around 7:30pm. Wakes between 2&4am and is up fully around 7am.
    If she has a day sleep, even for half an hour, she is awake til way past 10pm.

    Default Re: Just turned 3yr old sleep question

    Ds2 is 3 in couple months - only has a nap on daycare days - those days he's a struggle to get to bed/sleep before 9pm - home days he doesn't nap and out like a light by 7.30 at the absolute latest - and no matter what transpired the night before he's up between 6 and 7

    I remember ds1 (now 5) being like this and he eventually grew out of it and is no hassle come bedtime (7pm) despite sharing his room with ds2

    Default Just turned 3yr old sleep question

    Dd just turned 3. She goes to bed between 7-7:30pm every night regardless of whether she had a day sleep or not. 6 out of 7 days she will have a day sleep for 2 hrs. Wakes every morning at 6:30am. She's like clock work.
    Oddly, our 5 mth old DS has also started waking at 6:30am and ready for bed at 7pm. Must be in the genes or something.
