Will not go to bed at a reasonable time!

I completely get that a toddler who naps is likely to go to bed a bit later. However it literally doesn't matter what we do - even with no nap, he WILL NOT go to sleep before about 8/8:30. Usual bedtime these days is more like 9:30. He's always been quite low sleep needs but it's just getting too much. Anyone else experiencing similar??

We went through this recently. Eventually worked out that he was overtired by bedtime at 19:00 due to not having enough daytime sleep. He now naps for about 1.5 hours starting at 12:00 and goes to bed no problems by 19:30 latest x

Same here, my little one was going to bed around 9, I have woken her up at 7 every day and been letting her nap longer than usual and she’s been going to bed at 7.30/8 the last few days and 8.30 today! Might need more sleep. I say this but a couple of months ago I tried everything and she still would only go down at 10pm soooo I feel ya mama

I put my little girl for a nap at weekends, and leave her to sleep until she wakes on her own. She still goes down for the night at half 7. Maybe your wee one is overtired? I find it harder to get my little girl down at bed time if she's had no nap, compared with a long nap. We've also had the same bedtime routine since day 1 pretty much, so I think she's kinda conditioned now, because she takes herself off to bed at the end of the routine lol.
