My 3 1/2 year old son gave up his nap about 2 months ago. He definitely seemed ready. He used to willingly nap for 2 hours a day and have a bedtime of 7:30/8:00. He began to resist napping and not fall asleep until 9:30 if he napped. So it seemed like he was ready to drop the nap.
Since then, his bedtime seems appropriate (routine starts at 7, usually asleep by 7:30/7:45) BUT he is so TIRED! He usually wakes at 6:30 AM and doesn't seem to be able to last all day without getting tired and cranky. He was almost never cranky and moody before and I don't know how to get my sweet, well-rested boy back! Any suggestions?
