My child started not napping everyday a couple on months ago and would maybe have one every second day then a couple of times a week. Too actually get him to sleep it takes about 35mins -hour.
Lately if he has a nap his bedtime of 8pm turns into him still being awake at 930!
I feel like he benefits from occasional nap but loses so many hours night time sleep if he does that I can't win.
If he goes to sleep late he still gets up at same time if not earlier.
He has always been a crap sleeper so I'm no stranger to sleep research and info and have always believed sleep begets sleep, although regardless my son has had his issues.
I suppose I'm feeling guilty about going without a nap for him as I am aware of the need for children to nap and its importance but it's just not working here
He gets less sleep hours In total with a nap then if we just do earlier bedtime and no nap.
Anyone has similar experience or advice.
