I have an almost 3 year old daughter who we are trying to debate if we should take away her naps. She has always been a late sleeper and night owl but with school coming up and getting to daycare this just doesn't work. My question is should we take out her 1 nap a day (usually2-3 hours if she does nap and she is a terror if you wake her up early) and to bed by 7 pm or let her nap and not get her to be until 10-10:30. We thought we had it solved taking out the naps as she seems fine without them until its time to get ready for bed than it is a scream fest to get her in her PJ's, brush her teeth, wash her face and hands or bath. And then there are the times she just has such a busy day she ends up needing a nap and of course we let her fall asleep but then it throws the whole schedule off for the next day. Any thoughts, suggestions.
