My daughter is 3 and is very inconsistent when it comes to naps. Sometimes she'll take one, sometimes she won't and will get tired and cranky around 5, and sometimes she won't nap and she'll be fine. It's so hard to know what to do each day. Do I try to put her down? Do I let her not take one and hope she doesn't get tired and cranky? The worst is when she knocks out around 5 and throws off her whole night, which means she goes to sleep later and I don't get my down time to recoup for the next day.
Any thoughts out there?
