My little girl is 23 months old and im struggling with her routine now. She used to nap 2pm-4 everyday, and go to sleep at bedtime (between 7/ 7-30pm) no problems. But for the last month she's not been able to get settled and sleep before 9pm. Which is frustrating because it cuts a big chunk into myself and my husbands relaxing time! Although she was sleeping til half 7am next day which i cant complain about!
So for the past week or so i have been cutting out her naps, which my dauhgter has handled brilliantly, and been sound asleep by 7pm.
That parts great, but now she gets restless in the night and wakes up around 3am and we have to settle her back to sleep. Then is up and raring to play at 6.45
Should i give in and let her nap thenstay up late so she gets better sleep. or are interrupted nights my sacrifice for a relaxing evening?
What would you guys do?
