What is she doing before she goes to sleep? If she's crying or upset then yes, maybe she could go later but if she's happily daydreaming or talking to her teddies then she's probably just preparing herself and relaxing after a busy day. One of my daughters always laid in bed for at least 1 1/2 hours before sleeping when she was 3 and 4. Putting her to bed later just meant she went to sleep later still.
Callum goes to bed at 8 and usually will fall asleep quite quickly after some milk. We never tried 7 as hes always just winding down at this time and hes always gone at 8. Some occasional nights though he seems to be awake for a while before falling asleep, hes always happy though so we tend to leave him to it and he falls asleep after a bit xx
My DD goes to bed at 6pm. She doesnt always sleep straight away and often wakes up about 10pm and just daydreams a bit but because she's happy, i just leave her an she is fine. Dont fix what isnt really broken i say
