So it seems my 2.5 year old DS is in the process of dropping his day nap. He used to nap from 11.30am - 1.00pm without any issues whatsoever but in the last week or so has suddenly started to resist it. On the days he has taken naps we've then had huge battles getting him to bed at night (usual bedtime is 7.30pm but last night he didn't go to sleep till 9.30pm after napping from 1.30-3.00pm)... so I'm pretty sure he doesn't need that nap. We do lots of physical activities every morning too but it doesn't seem to make any difference. The problem is though that when he doesn't take a nap he then seems to become super tired and cranky by around 3.30pm-4.00pm... but I wouldn't dare let him have a nap that late in the day as he'd be awake after that till midnight!
My questions then... Is it fairly normal for an almost 3 year old to not have any day naps? And how do you all cope with the transition period where they are still adjusting to not having one? To be honest, I am freaking out a lot as I used to heavily rely on him having that nap to get a few things done around the house and have just 5 minutes to myself to relax in peace.... I could cry!!!
