    My DD did similar to TamTam's (recurring theme ).

    The transition from 2 to 1 was quite awkward, the 2 naps were becoming quite short and the second very difficult to put her down for, so we went to 1, but initially it was only as long as one of her previous two naps but then it stretched out by itself and she is still have 2-3 hour day naps.

    I actually find pushing the nap out too late can sometimes have the opposite effect, my DD wakes 7:30 and goes back down 11:30-12

    I definitely think she needs more sleep. When my 3 kids were on one nap (from around 12 months) they would sleep at least 2 hours and my girls would often do 3. Then they would do 12 or 13 overnight. Generally 6pm - 6:30am.

    My DS has only ever had 1.5hrs for his one nap a day. He's done this from about 12 months. Every now and then he'll sleep for 2-2.5 hours just to surprise me. He didn't start sleeping through the night until around 16 months - but even then his daytime nap didn't change at all.

    I think it really depends on the individual child. OP - If she's mostly happy after naps and she's sleeping well at night I wouldn't worry too much.

    ETA DS started walking at 13 months and the daytime nap didn't change.
