Bella is 12 months and 2 weeks old.
She has since 11 months old slept 10.5 hours at night, and then two 1.5 hour naps by day.
4 days ago, she started sleeping 12 hours at night ... and then her daytime naps are a struggle!
she seems very ready for her morning one just 2.5 hours after she wakes up in the morning ...
but her afternoon one is a MESS. Refuses it!
With careful distraction, I keep her up until her usual bedtime of 7.45pm ... but it is HARD WORK ... basically have to ensure nothing makes her cry - cos if she starts - she seems too tired to process and recover! so i keep her happy happy happy! But she is pretty "Drunk" by bed!
I dont know whether i should help her take this morning nap later nearer noon ...
or keep offering 2 naps, one in the am around 10.30am ... and on in the pm around 2.30pm
I did try keeping her up until 11am yesterday - she couldnt handle it ... it was awful. 10.30am is the latest she can comfortably go ...
