    No i pick my DD (2yrs) up from daycare just after lunch and she comes home for her nap and sleeps for 3 hours + then has an early night to bed. AWESOME!

    She only goes 1 day a week and i stay at home with DS. I prefer her to sleep at home so i dont have to deal with a feral child in the evening who possibly hasnt had a long enough nap at daycare! DD is 28mths and still NEEDS minumun 2 hours day nap every day. Im not letting daycare mess with that!

    I could have written your post SAgirl, DS started FDC in feb and was fantastic until the last couple of weeks he slept well there 2-3hr nap around lunch and no issues sleeping at home, now all of a sudden he's fighting sleep there and if he does fall asleep it's only for 30mins which is not enough for him now he has started doing the same at home he is having night terrors on the days he doesn't sleep which are causing really bad nights for all of us and I don't know what to do! Today is the first day he's slept more than 20mins during the day and I did nothing differently the only thing that's changed is we moved him from a cot to a bed but we only had 2 days of him getting up constantly then he just stayed in bed and went to sleep. I'm at a loss as to what we should do to help him sleep and its doing my head in

    My DD2 is 2.5 and has been at daycare 2 days a week for 12mths and has never had a sleep there.

    She used to sleep at home during the day but that went out the window once she was out of the cot & in a bed

    Yep, DS sleeps better at Daycare than he does at home! I think he just copies the other kids.

    My DS has been at daycare since he was 6 months old, he does not sleep very well there at all however at home he has always had 2 hour sleeps, he is now 26 months on occasions approx every 6 weeks he will test me and try to refuse his sleep I then move his sleep back by 10 mins he now goes down at 1.30pm and I wake him at 3pm. The days he doesn't sleep at daycar I put him to bed at 6.30 if he is super tired

    Yeah I prefer it when they drop their naps, can be a bugger arranging the day around naps on the weekend. Often DD ends up grabbing cat naps in the car between stops.
