    Default When did your toddler drop the day sleep?

    DD1 dropped day sleeps at 18 months, she only ever cat napped anyway in the day. At 3yrs old she decided she wanted a lunchtime sleep again - bonus! It has no impact on our night times but does make afternoons easier.

    He definitely sounds like he is ready to drop his nap and at least he enjoys quiet time..
    My 3&4 year olds still have a 2 hour nap during the day but they are the opposite, if they haven't had it come 5pm they are so cranky.

    Can't quite remember with DS but it was earlyish but he was such a bad sleeper it didn't surprise me. DD dropped hers only a couple of months ago (so nearly 3) but isn't coping well. She keeps falling asleep on the couch at 4.30 so then I have to wake her for dinner at 5.30 which results in lots of crying and sometimes going back to sleep in her dinner plate. We've gone back to trying to put her to bed which sometimes works or being more vigilant at keeping her awake so she at least eats her dinner.

    DD was about 2.5 but I know one of the bubs in my mum's group was around 2 which surprised me at the time (but not once DD dropped hers!). DD was exactly like your DS, even 10 minutes nap would mean 10pm bedtime.

    The first month or so was more of a transition. I stopped trying to get her to nap but some days (eg. after swimming lessons) she just crashed and most days she would just have some quiet time.

    After that she settled into no day naps but usually a sunday (or 'at home' day) once a week/fortnight she'd take a big long nap - like she was catching up on missed sleep. Bit like when we have our sunday sleep-in/day on the couch I guess.
