    Default Afternoon sleep timing?

    Hi all, I'm after some input from people whose children can't sleep too late in the afternoon without being up very late.

    What time do you cut off an afternoon sleep? 2:30? 4:30?

    I know it's going to be trial and error, but I just wondered what works for others. Thanks!

    Depends on age. My kids. Over 3yo it's 3pm for a 7pm bedtime. For under 3yo it's 4.30pm.

    Entirely depends on age.

    My 2.5 year old sleeps 2-4pm for an 8pm bedtime. If she goes to sleep a bit late I'll let her stay down until 4.30pm but no later and then we do lots of racing around to wear her out lol

    Ds is 16mths and I don't let him go past 4pm. It's very rare that he does sleep that late though, he usually naps 12:30-3

    My DS is 17 months and I do t let him sleep past 2:30 as he can cope nicely with 5 hours awake time and I like to get him down around 7:30.
