My DS Has just turned 2. He's been at daycare since mid feb of this year for two days a week. He used to sleep at daycare and only have the odd day here and there where he didn't sleep.
Anyway on the days he was home with me he still slept. But lately he isn't sleepin at daycare and he is also mucking about at home an wont sleep!!
Before anyone says maybe he's outgrown his day sleep, no he hasn't. He still needs a day sleep. How do I know? Because he falls asleep in the car on the way home from daycare AND he has night terrors every time he doesn't sleep at daycare.
Anyway daycare seems to be ruining our routine he's been at daycare 3 days this week and didn't sleep on Amy of those days, and now today he won't sleep at home either!!
How do I get the routine back? It's really frustrating coz he needs to sleep as he is also sick.

Do your toddlers sleep at daycare?
07-06-2013 12:10 #2
Yes. My almost 3yo sleeps 1.5-2hrs at daycare 3x a week and 2-2.5hrs at home.
Can you keep him home a week to get him used to sleeping daily then return to daycare a day a week?

We have the opposite situation here, my 2 year old has dropped her day nap but her 1 day a week at daycare she has a nap which results in her being awake till 10/11pm
Can you ask the carers why he isn't napping? Are they trying to get him to sleep or just letting him play?

I'm in the same situation. I have to practically beg him to fall asleep. He hasn't outgrown his day naps either because by 3pm, he's buggered when he doesn't take a nap.

Yes, DD is there 5 days and sleeps every day (she's 20 months).

My 3 yr old DD will sleep sometimes at daycare but every day at home. I think it depends on which teacher she has as some of them let her get away with more than others. Perhaps speak with the carers and ask what steps they are taking to try to get him to sleep.

Yes, my 27 month old has pretty much dropped her day nap now. She started by not napping at daycare 1-2 days a week but still napping on the other days and always napping on her days at home. Gradually the no nap days at daycare got more frequent. Now she rarely even naps at home. If she does it's only for an hour or so. She does crash out at 7 and sleep through til 7-7.30 though so I don't really mind!
