hello what i do with my son, he has breakfast at bout 9am, i put him down for a nap at 11am. he wakes at about12.30pm and then around 1-1.30pm i will give him a big meal like his dinner and then he will play till about 4.30-5.30pm when he will have a sandwich or something like that and then a bottle before bed and he will sleep for 12 hours.

Cooper has just recently switched to one sleep per day so his routine is a bit of a blur at the moment... He normally wakes between 5-6.30am and has his nap from 12pm- 2 or 3pm, depending on levels of exhaustion! He does have a small snack then, as he attends daycare 3 days per week and needs something to get him through the arvo there. He doesn't have a big snack, maybe some dried fruit or a cracker or two. He is often in bed by 6pm. I have tried rationing his food so that he is super hungry and ready for tea, but that doesn't work, he'll run up to me when I tell him it's tea time but still wont eat.

Thanks for you're input ladies!

Izzy has a nap from about 2-3 ish and then has tea at 5 before bed at 6.30. We still don't give her snacks though. Deffinately think it all depends on the time of his naps and when he's going to bed!

ethan naps late, around 3:30-4pm (1hr max). i actually try not to give him a snack after he wakes up (since he naps so late) cuz i don't want to ruin his appitite for dinner. we have dinner about 5:30-6pm. if i do give him a snack, it's before his nap. he's in bed by 7:45pm.

My girls eat dinner around 4:30 or 5, bath at 5:30 to bed by 7pm.

Is he napping once a day or twice?

Jack usually eats dinner around 5:30 or 6, too, and it works well for us. He naps late in the afternoon and will usually take a snack or some milk when he wakes up.

Maybe you should feed him after he takes a nap so he isn't tired! My daughter usually takes a nap until 3 and she wakes up and eats a snack then we eat dinner around 5:30 or 6. It works great for us :)
