Hi, so my 16 month is still taking 2 naps a day (one late morning for about 1hr & one around 3.30-5pm). I have been trying to let him take just 1 nap so that he's sleep pattern coincides with his bro from 1-4pm. But he will usually wakes up after 1-1.5hr. I think he thinks that his 1st nap. Anyone tried some method which works? TIA!

If he is managing to stay awake until bedtime from that nap then he does not need the other sleep. Some children do not need a nap in the day. All three of mine stopped nap time altogether at 2 and went to bed 6.30-7pm and slept until 7.30-8am. I know it means you do not get a break in the day but you get more time at night to yourself.
