    Default Once a day Nap , Transitioning and going out.

    Hello ,

    My LO is 16 months old and lately his day sleeps are all over the place, I still put him down for the AM nap and if he sleeps its great! If not i get him up and he will sleep in the afternoon, so after a few weeks of this, I am now going to move him to one a day sleep at midday.
    But.... What do I do if we go out for lunch?? Do I just leave the nap altogether (if he wont sleep in the pram) or wait and give him one in the afternoon?
    I am just worried if he naps too late he might not go down at 7pm cause he is not tired?

    Thanks for your advise

    Unfortunately we just don't get to do lunch at the moment! We do breakfast or an early dinner. Having a toddler who wants to be asleep out with you when you are having lunch doesn't make for a pleasant experience

    This. Lunch out is just not an option for us at the moment. 2 kids who are usually asleep at 12:30 do not make lunch out fun. We often have morning tea (picnic) at the park.

    We have our nap at 1:30pm.
    Can have lunch out or at home. Afternoons are at home instead

    Okay, I can work around that just run errands in the morning and play dates etc..

    My only concern is, I have a lunch for my Grandmother that I really need to go to. Fingers crossed he will sleep in the pram

    Maybe leave a little bit earlier so you can go for a walk and hopefully he will fall asleep.

    As a once off you just have to hope. Maybe he'll fall asleep to/from in the car?

    Like the others I really avoid making lunch plans... But if I can't avoid it I go and hope that he falls asleep in the car on the way home... Late naps don't really disrupts sons bedtime thankfully!
