Elise is doing better in her big bed and still naps most days but I dontt know what's worse she naps and then wont go to bed till 10pm or she doesn't nap and gets so grumpy I think dh and I are leaning toward later bedtime although we still put her to bed at 8 pm and she plays in her room and we put her back in bed every 30 min or so untill she falls asleep or just cutting out nap those that have older kids and cut out nap how long untill they go used to not napping

Have you thought about shortening her nap time? Maybe a one hour nap?

My kids still get naps during the day and are in bed by 8pm.. It's a set routine.

This was Lucy for ages. Then I just gave up on the afternoon nap. She still gets grumpy sometimes and will drop and nap on the floor or the couch or in the stroller getting Jas from school but now she goes to bed much easier.

It took me a while to get used to her not napping but now it is so much easier. We can go out any time of the day and not need to have her home to nap. Weekends are especially easier since she gave up the nap. Her and Jassie spend all day playing with no mean mummy or daddy interrupting them for a silly nap.

That is tough. I would try shortening the nap first to see if that helps you out.

Each kid is different. I hope you find something that works.

I agree..

I forgot to add my kids go to preschool, so when they come home they unwind and go down easier.. I'm sure it would be a different story if they were home all the time..

For Billy, whether or not he has a nap does not make a difference. It is the time of the nap.

No nap = goes to bed too early and sleeps only 5 or 6 hours, getting up at 2 am or goes into complete cuckoo overdrive.

Too late of a nap = doesn't go to sleep until way late. I am talking 2 or 3 AM late.

Well she is doing a bit better j don't wake her from naps because for her that's worse than not napping but she hasent snapped in the last few days but I think we arr going with the trying for a nap when home but if we have plans I am not going to worry about it, the freedom of a big bed has been a hard transition for her

We have this same issue. And I did with both boys as well. So far I've found *for us* I'd rather let her nap and stay up late, because *I* Like the quiet time, LOL.

With both boys I was much more set in my bed time ways, and would distract them and play when they would start wanting to nap, and then put them down for bed right at 8, this included avoided 20+ minute car drives after 2 pm.

Even though I do let B nap when she wants to, I do prefer her NOT to nap and to go to bed at 8, but if she is falling asleep, I let her...otherwise the tantrums are NOT worth her going to bed on time.

I have heard that transitioning to a big kid bed causes sleep issues with some kids. That is why we are planning on getting Billy his bed in the summer. I won't need to worry about getting up for work during that time.

I always said we would get him his bed when he either started climbing out of the crib or when he got too big for it. I am hoping we can stretch it until the end of June. So far he has only put his leg over the side.
