Ok, up until this week, M (23months) has been really obvious when she needs a nap. She'll get cranky, get put down, and go to sleep for 1-2hours. And this week today especially, i put her down (stayed with her obviously) and she just wouldn't sleep. But if she's on a long car trip she will sleep.
I'm wondering though, if she's at that age where she is starting to give up her daytime sleeps. Or chalk it up to the fact that we've had a few rough weeks?

Subscribing! This is exactly what my DD has been doing for the past week. She is nearly 23 months.

My DD2 is just a little older and does this every now and then... I do presist and eventually she will drop off. My DD1 very much obviously stopped her sleeps at 3. If you need the break, or she is a crank pants without the sleep, I would persist for a couple of weeks and see how you go.

Mine are 3 in may & still sleep for a min of 1.5 hours each day. Today it was 4 hours.
There is no way in the world they can cope without a sleep.

she's such a beautiful child, but she's being so much more full on without that nap. And her older brother is hyping her up and i just want to go hide in timbuktoo
i suppose i can't complain - she does still go roughly 11-12hours at night for the most part, but...dude...go to sleep?
nup - i just had a dvd player thrown...apparently she's going to bed early today.

It's probably a little early for her to drop her daysleep yet, but you may need to shorten the sleep or push it back. Most toddlers drop their daysleep sometime between 2 and 4.
What time does she sleep at night and wake? Once my toddlers reach this age I often find I have to wear them out a lot to get the day sleep at a decent time. If we are having a quiet day sometimes I find it better to drop the sleep and bring bed time earlier.
