That's a beautiful routine.  Send your daughter to see my son.

Well you give and take right.  Routine is good but I'm sure I could take on other accounts.

Ds is 2.5 years now and after a month or so when I thought he was ready to drop his nap, we are back in a really nice routine. 2 things I am ruled by now. He won't sleep til 6 hours after wake up time when we are at home. Not even bother for a nap in the cot! Has to be buggy or car now. So on nursery days we have;

7.00 light comes on or I wake him
12.00 nap. (god knows how!!!)
1ish he wakes (surprise a short nap)
7pm he is asleep most nights

On non nursery days we have a longer nap(not just for my benefit of course!)
Between 7am and 8am wake up
between 1pm and 2pm goes to sleep
I always wake him between 2pm and 3pm - depends on when I want bedtime to be
Asleep for night between 7.30 and 8pm

I am so grateful for the advice that he still needs a nap. All his RL peers have dropped it.

Mya is 17 months and has just gone to 1 nap. Nap length varies greatly now as she is getting used to 1 nap, can be anywhere from around an hour to 3 hours.

6:30/7: awake, wake at 7 am if necessary
7:15: Breakfast
10:30: Milk or snack
11:00: Nap, she stays in bed until 1:30 even if she took a short nap
1:30/2: Lunch
4/4:30: Dinner
Bath, PJ's, Stories
5-6: Bedtime (depends on nap length)

Loving our routine at 14 mths, and her pm nap lines up with big sis so I have 2 hrs free in the afternoon!  I hope it lasts a bit longer but I know the 2-1 will be coming up soon.

Wake up 7:15 (we wake her)
am nap 10-11:30 (we wake her)
pm nap 3-4:30 (she asks to go to bed at 2 so I take her up there then, I tried waiting since it has been taking 45 min or more to go to sleep but she gets fussy, gets her sleep sack and comes to me with it.  It is such an awesome break for me!)
Asleep 8/8:15

My DS is 18mos... He's been on 1 nap from 13mos.
6.15-7.30am Awake, 100mls milk
breakfast 1 hour later
9.30/10am snack
11.30/12 lunch
12.30/1pm story - usually 3 short books followed by milk 100mls then nap of 1 1/2 to 3 hours( I don't let him sleep more than 3 hours or past 4pm)
snack and water when he wakes
5.30/6pm dinner
bath by 6.30pm
milk 100mls then bed by 7/7.15 pm
STTN - unless ill or teething.

I'm so much more relaxed about DSs day now, when he was littler I was completely OTT with a strict EASY. Now that I know him so much better I can just tell if he needs more sleep, more A time or an earlier bedtime etc. I'm really loving this routine! Seems he is too. ;)

A times are still all-important here for self-settling, although now at 16 months Spirited DD has become able to deal with some degree of UT, babbling herself to sleep. Our routine is similar to when we went to one nap at 11 months, with minor A-time changes every time she recovered from a bout of sickness or teething.

08:00 -- Wake, breakfast
10:30 -- Snack
12:00 -- Lunch
13:00 -- Cup of milk
13:15-15:15 -- Nap
15:30 -- Snack
17:00/17:30 -- Dinner
20:00 -- Cup of milk
20:30 -- Bed

We had been using a bottle still but decided it was best to do away with it altogether after using it a lot for APOPing while sick.

DS1, 32mos:
7:30/8am wake
1-2:30 nap
8pm in bed, but he has been taking at least 30mins to go to sleep these days so I think his nap needs to start decreasing a bit

DS2, 12mos:
7am wake
12:30-2 nap (sometimes longer)
7/7:30 bed
*sometimes he still has a short am nap of about 20mins sometime between 10-11, and this pm nap will be from 1/1:30-3ish

25 mths

Awake anywhere between 6-7, more like 6:45/7 on average
Nap 1 - 2:30 (just started capping this, used to be 2+ hrs)
Bedtime asleep by 7:45/8

It's taken us reflux and 20 teeth to get here though.  And a TON of constant tweaking!
The tweaking never stops!

This is our new routine which seems to be working.  We needed to tweak a bit b/c we were getting some serious EW.

Awake: anywhere between 6:30-7:30 ( usually I wake her @ 7)
Nap: 1-2:30/3 (I wake her @ 3 if she's not awake yet)
Bedtime:7pm

DD @ 32 months:

6:30-7:30-wake up (it definitely varies...sometimes as late as 8)
Has not been napping in general...will sometimes do a car nap for a short 15-30 minutes depending on where we are going ;)
I STRIVE for a 7:00pm bedtime...but she tends to stall or take until closer to 8 to fall asleep.
