DD is 17 months old, she has always been a horrible sleeper I suppose but finally I got her into 7 to 7 with an afternoon nap between 12-2, life was good she was happier and seemed less tired and cranky but in the last week she fights the day sleep, dropping off at about 2 and sleeping to 4 as a result she hasn't been going to sleep in the evening till about 10 ( she is in her cot but just plays)
Yesterday I kept her up with no sleep, she went to sleep at 6.30 and slept all night.
I think the writing is on the wall for no day sleep, she just seems awfully young for that and the last couple of hours before bed she was so tired, grumpy and clumsy.
How old was your child hen they dropped the day sleep?

I can't remember exactly, but it was before she turned 2. I tried so hard to keep her nap but she was adament. We still have quiet time during the day and if she does need a nap, she will let me know.

DD1 was still napping occasionally at 3. DS dropped his nap at 26 months.

The thought of no day nap fills me with horror, I struggle to keep her entertained as it is but not loving the really late bedtimes either
I will keep her up again today and see how we go, last couple of hours is hard slog though lol

I need some entertaining ideas, we play, have started drawing, books, we go to the park every other day, errands but we live remotely so there are no play centres and things like that. She is abit young for crafts and things like that.
She is also going through a ridiculously shy and clingy stage, she rejects everybody except for the people she lives with, so socialising is a real trail at the moment, she just ducks her head into my legs and won't budge, cries if I try to uncling her.

I can't wait until DD drops her nap! I hate having to plan weekends around naps! (I work FT). Often I just plan a car trip at lunch time so that I can carry on and go places. She actually survives fine on little day sleep, and goes to sleep more easily at night with less sleep.

Wow! My 3.5 year old still occasionally has a nap and only dropped it permanently about 3 months ago.
My DS2 is 18 months and went through a stage of not sleeping well, but he has now settled down to a 2 hour nap at midday.
I just cannot contemplate dropping it that early.
My only advice is make sure you wear her out in the morning, and watch her to see if she starts getting tired in a few weeks. She may just need a break!
