    Default When to go to 1 sleep?

    I'm looking for some advice on when to put DS down to one sleep a day.
    He's nearly 13 months. He was always a terrible sleeper during the day, but does well at night. I'm talking nearly 11 hours at night.
    Lately his day sleeps having been getting shorter..
    This is how his sleeps usually are..
    It's quite rough but more go by his signs.
    Between 9 and 10 sleep - was anywhere between 1 and a half to 2 and a half hours.
    Back to bed between 3 and 4 - 1 and a half to 2 and a half hours.

    Lately both sleeps will last anywhere between 40 minutes and 2 hours.

    Mainly my question is, when did u know your LO was ready for just one sleep?

    Thanks

    At 14 months, dd just stopped going down for her second nap. They didn't really get shorter- just one day she refused and screamed and this continued for a week before I knew it wasn't teething related.

    It was a difficult transition took a good month for the stretch her morning awake time and for the one nap to last at least an hour and a half.

    Early bedtimes too

    My DD dropped to one nap by 10 months, she was never a good day sleeper to begin with. It just got harder & harder to get her down and she'd barely sleep if/when she finally did. I gradually stretched her out longer & longer in the morning until I was giving her an early lunch (11:30am) & nap afterwards.

    He's happy to go to bed at his usual times just won't sleep for long. He's usually rubbing his eyes and getting annoyed by that time so we know he's tired but only short sleeps make him cranky lol
    I've tried pushing his morning sleep out to see what he does and he will only sleep 30 - 40 minutes

    My DD transitioned at 15 mo. i always went with tired signs and they just got later and later. The second nap became later too and she was taking longer to fall asleep. I just decided one day to pop her down later and see how she went. The first month was a bit up and down, she sometimes would wake and I would have to resettle her but once she got the hang of it she has been great.
