DD is currently 20mo (almost 21mo)
And for the past few months has been going to sleep at between 9-10pm, past few weeks have been 10pm or just after! She wakes around 7.30 - 8 am.
Is it time to drop her day sleeps? She usually sleeps for 1 -1.5 hrs.
Iv tried putting her to sleep 10/15 mins earlier for a few nights & then earlier again after a few nights, but it doesn't seem to work.
Any suggestions. Thanks

It's a bit early to drop a nap. Sounds like your dd may not be getting enough sleep.
What time is her day nap?

Yep we dropped DS' day sleep at 23 months for the same reason. Just do it, the early bedtime is so worthwhile.

I think some children need less sleep than others. It sounds like your dd is having close to 12h/day. She could get 10.5-11h/night and 1h day nap?
Maybe just trying to get her to bed a bit earlier, but rather than 15 earlier each day, doing 15 min earlier during one week, then the following week bring it further 15minutea. E.g. Week 1 - bedtime 10pm, week 2 - bedtime 9.45pm, week 3 - bedtime 9.30pm and so forth until you get to a time that you find appropriate.
Also, watch her diet in the evening to see if there is anything that might be stimulating.
