    A Question:My 2 1/2 year old girl goes down for her nap between 1 and 1:30. For the past month there are 2 or 3 days a week that she doesn’t sleep during naptime, just quietly (usually!) talk and play in her bed. I’ll get her up after 1.5-2 hours. Does this sound relatively normal for her age, like I don’t need to change anything? Or should I try changing her naptime or bedtime? I like the current naptime because it coincides with my 11 month old’s afternoon nap.Thank you!

    proudmum, if she is ready to drop that third nap, she should be able to move back to a more “normal” bedtime (say closer to 7) before long. Otherwise, one idea would be to put her down at 6:30, let her sleep thirty minutes, get her up for an hour, then back to bed.

    Noelle, that sounds pretty normal. If she is happy after her lack of nap, I wouldn’t worry about it. If she is pretty cranky, I might try a strict 1:00 PM nap. Keep in mind that for a toddler, going down 15 minutes too late can mean it takes her time to fall asleep. They can get a second wind 🙂
