How long does your child lay there until they go to sleep?

My 3.5 DD's bedtime has always been 9:00 but since it has gotten warmer, it has been closer to 9:30 when she gets in the bed. It seems like she lays there for at least 30 minutes and sometimes longer until she goesto sleep.Is that normal? She still takes a 2 hour nap everyday, could that be why?

  • depending on my sons mood he may lay their talking to himself and singing for an hour or more. As long as he isn't screaming and he's in bed I dont mind.

  • Id say its normal. You can try giving her an earlier nap so when its bedtime she can fall asleep faster.
