    my LO is 19 months old and for the past few months he has been getting up at about 7am he will have a nap at 12.45 - about 2 sometimes longer and then i put him to bed at 8.

    Try moving his morning nap until after lunch it might work but all LO's are different!

    Good luck

    Thats what I was going to suggest too :thumbup:
    I would try cutting out his morning nap and letting him nap after lunch and then keep him up til bedtime.
    Good luck

    Bren wakes up around 7 to 7:30. Naps from 10ish to 11:30. He then has another nap at around 4 and I wake him up at 5:30. he goes to bed at 9. I like this, it works for us. I now have time to get dinner ready and eat and hang with him and DH, and then get him ready for bed without rushing.

    I think I am going to do exactly this. We seem to have the same schedule.
