I have a four, soon to be five year old who has just started preschool three mornings a week. He has not taken a nap for about the last year. Before that he slept for two or three hours every afternoon. Then one day he just stopped. I do insist on quiet time in the afternoon and he will lie down and look at books for the entire time his little brother naps, but no matter how tired he is, he will not sleep. He goes to bed at 7:30 and sleeps until around 6:30.
This wasn't really a problem before he started going to school. He seemed well rested with that amount of sleep. But school really wears him out and by dinner he is just not himself because he is so tired. I don't really know what to do. I can't MAKE him sleep at nap time and he already goes to bed pretty early. Any suggestions on how to make sure my little guy is getting enough rest? Thanks mamas!
