DD is 18 months. She wakes early each morning, by 5:30am latest, and seems tired by 9:00 so she has a nap, for up to an hour or maybe a bit more. However, it's becoming a problem as now her afternoon nap is getting so late. It's 2:30 by the time she's going down, then up at between 3:30-4. And so bedtime is late!!! Can be 8pm by the time she's asleep which leaves precious little time to do anything (let alone sit and relax) when I need to get to sleep by 9pm to cope with the early starts.....
Should I force a shorter morning nap, so she might go down earlier in the afternoon? She always used to only have 30 min morning naps but they've got longer.
Or try to cut the morning one out? I find when she's had only one nap on some days she won't always sleep so well. She'll sleep for a shorter amount of time than her usual afternoon nap, so is really down on sleep and tired.
