2.5 yr old - routine change?
« on: June 25, 2019, 15:56:26 pm »
my DD1 is almost 2.5, and has been a pretty amazing sleeper.
she has started waking up early and I'm wondering if ts time for a routine change.

she used to wake up between 7 and 7:30 and now it ranges from 5:45 to 6:45...on average between 6 and 6:30.
she naps at playgroup at about 11:30 and I've asked the to cap her nap at 1.5 hours. (she would sleep for 2 hours or more if I'd let her) and she goes to sleep between 7 and 7:30 PM.
I know her nap should technically be later in the day but that's when all the other kids nap and she doesn't really want to stay up after them.

should I be capping her nap at 1 hour? Will that help with the early waking?

Hi, I think at this age day starts to rob from night so Id be capping the night or pushing BT later. Both mine were well into the 1-0 transition at that age and DS2 had dropped his completely. All are different of course x

my daughter started Day Camp and didn't want to nap so I decided to just go with it and put her to bed early by 6.30 PMinstead of 7/7.30 . My question is how many hours of sleep can I expect from her total within a 24-hour period? she is still up at about 6:15 or 6:30 a.m. is this just due to the transition? Or do I need to put her to bed later to get her to wake up like she used to between 7 and 7:30?. She also has started waking up a few times at night, is this due to the transition as well? And how do I get her out of that habit?
Thank you as always for your help!
