My son is 3 1/2 we have had problems getting him to sleep before 9. We cut out day sleep at 2 and still have problems, He also wakkes between 6 & 7. Any ideas will be great

We found that with our daughter (who is now 3) was still having a long afternoon nap but then having difficulty getting to sleep at night so first we reduced her nap from 2 hours to an hour. And then by about 3 we stopped her naps completely and she goes to bed between 6.30 and 7pm and is so pooped she sleeps straight away until about 7am in the morning.

Does he sleep till late in the morning? he should wake up around 6 or 7 am take a nap around 1 till 2 or 3 so he can go to sleep at 7 or 8. U might wanna skip only if you can n u know he won't get cranky, a nap one day and make him sleep earlier. To go to bed u can do things like say good night to every room n turn off the lights so he knows everyone will go to sleep too. Good luck ! :)
