Hi, we went for it and we are now on day 4! We haven't had any CNs and we are getting a little sleep disturbance and shouting out in his sleep, but he is doing almost 12hrs. Goodness is he tired though, by 6pm he bursts into tears  :'( Hopefully it will be a fairly short phase and we will get caught up a little. Hope your nights are still stretching conniesmummy x

Sounds good!
Are you able to get him to bed any earlier if he's crying at 6pm?
I know when I tried a nap drop with mine he became dangerous at 4pm (ie falling, would have run into the road rather than hand hold, all due to tiredness rather than naughtiness) and that was too early for BT so I had to put the nap back in - but 6pm is not so unusual a BT for LOs dropping the nap.

We're going to try and get BT earlier tonight. Our main concern is that he is waking naturally just under the 12hr mark and we don't know if we'd get any longer out of him now that he has dropped (he has had just under 12hr total sleep ever since the 2-1 nap). With both me and DH being ill, a 6am WU would be rather a shock to the system  :o I'm keeping a very close eye today for signs.

We push through if Iím honest and do have some trickier days where we have hysterics at bathtime, but when weíve tried an earlier bedtime to tag on we get and earlier wake up so doesnít work. Weíre working on consistent ish bedtime around 7 and keep everything crossed 🤦‍♀️
She does have the ability to have the odd longer night and to allow any minute nap has such devastating consequences itís not worth it. Iím sure before long they will adjust and it will become easier on them...and us!!!

Sneaking back in here at 4 years and one day  :D

First day of holiday! We had a 20min nap in the car between 1.30-2pm, so nice and early. Unfortunately very excited plus lots of family equalled late to bed, out cold at 9pm. 5.40am "Mummy, how long do I have to wait, I think I'm going to wake up now"  ::) ;D I've never been up so early... (and my heart goes out to those of you with early wakers). He's gone out with family so no chance for  cat nap and I'll have to stretch him to an early bedtime in hope of a later start tomorrow. Wish us luck!
