Here's the problem: when DD naps, she won't go to bed until 9.30 or 10.30pm. in theory that would be okay, but DS wakes up multiple times through the night, so I am exhausted. When she refuses to nap, she goes to bed around 8pm, so both kids are sleeping by 8.15pm or so.

Would you remove her nap?

If she copes without the nap/fights it I would definatly take it away. My older stopped napping at 18 months. It had gotten ridiculous before I realized that the nap is causing more problems than it solved. My younger one still naps half the time. If we're out and about and doing fun things she is too busy and occupied to nap but if we're at home she's happy to sleep.

I'd take away the nap. Shawn doesn't always take a nap but some days he needs one. I have never been one to follow a schedule with my kids. I tend to let them sleep when they get sleepy and just not worry about it.

I'd do whatever makes life easiest and most enjoyable for all of you. lol So if that is letting her skip her nap, then go for it. When does she take a nap? Maybe it is too late? If you'd like to keep the nap you could try for an earlier time and see if that works.

I would take the nap out so you can rest. If DD is happy without it, go for it.
