Hi Everyone :)

My son will be 3 in september and has always been a high needs and textbook sleeper. However, the last week he has suddenly stopped napping at all during the day? Then passes out at 630 for the night. Not sure what to do?

Could anyone else post what their day looks like?

EASY up until a couple weeks ago
awake-6-7am
nap-1230-230
bed-7

If he's sleeping through the night ok, I don't think you need to do anything!

Yes he always slept through the night for the last two years. However, how does a child go from napping 2+hrs to suddenly nothing...?

Currently his Easy looks like:
Wake 630
NO NAP from 1230-230
Bed at 630.

Hes very tired by 5. Not sure what to do. He has always always been textbook and very high sleep needs..

My daughter did the same although she was 2 years old. Nap dropping can happen quite suddenly! If you feel he is getting tired of course you can do an earlier bedtime.

Do you actually know he's been waking up at the time you think he has in the mornings? I thought my DS2 was waking around 6amish until one morning I woke up at 5am to go to the toilet & took a peek into his room & he was awake just looking around etc & I kept checking on him & he never went back to sleep... then spent a few days checking on him & he was doing that every day. So where I thought he was sleeping 7.30-6am, with a nap it was actually 7.30- 4.45ish with a nap, but he was happily in his room that hour or so.  So it could have been he was awake at sometimes in the night /early morning & you didn't know about it, but now has stopped & that's why he doesn't need the nap.  When DS2 dropped his nap he used to do one day/week where he slept from 4.30-7am, where as a normal night was more like 7pm- 6.30am.
