I am young mother of my near 3 years old daughter. i am concerning about my daughters nappy schedule. She sometimes take a nap at 6 pm and wakes up at 8 pm. other day she would take a nap at 4 to 6 pm and then sometimes she doesn't take a nap at all. its varies at these days and I m trying to have her to have a steady nappy schedule so she can sleep at proper time for her bedtime. is that normal?? any advice?? help! also her father and i arent together so it sometimes hard to stay on the schedule.

I opened this thread thinking you were trying to get your daughter to poo on a schedule.

As it is, your daughter is probably transitioning out of needing naps. Things were pretty haphazard during that time for us too, and occasionally still are. My second is just turning three.

For us just trying to keep her distracted during the day to avoid taking a nap at all worked really well for having her completely ready for bedtime at 7:30 p.m. It takes a few days for the tot to get used to it but they adapt. If we do naps here she's up until midnight.
