Woah. Even the 3.5 year old can't do without a nap! I didn't even imagine dropping the nap yet. My April '21 little lady wakes up at 6:30am, naps 12-2pm, and then sleeps at 9pm ish.
We're having the same issue with the night terrors if we skip the nap and limp to an earlier bed time.
Mine naps 12-2 and without a nap I'd loose my head. She goes to bed between 7-8 and sleeps till 12 then has milk and gets up at 6ish 🥱
If my son wakes before 6 I know he will need a nap and I try and try and sometimes he has one but bedtime is a nightmare, but he’s usually up at 6:30-7 and he’s asleep between 6:00-6:15 yes he’s tired late afternoon but he cut his nap himself and now bedtimes are a breeze I’d say he naps maybe once a week if that
We now have no nap, as tea time comes we have tea then a walk to park or out on bike. Home bath screen time then book and bed. Seems to be working so far
Yes we have, we were the same, if he napped not going to sleep till gone 10 ish, no nap he’s tired and lagging about 4/5 but just keep him busy😅
We are dropping the naps but have similar problems I just tend to let them fall asleep for 10 mins in the car then they seem refreshed enough to make it till 6.30 x
