How long should I let him sleep?

I'm babysitting an 18 month old, and he got dropped off at 6am and fell asleep on my lap around 6:30. Now he's sleeping on the couch. When do you think I should wake him up if I want him to nap at 12:30-1 (his normal nap time)? It's only 7:40 here btw.

  • Wake him up soon then but him down for a nap at his normal nap time. If he is still super tired the baby will sleep longer during his nap period. My son wakes up around 8:30am most mornings then naps around 1pm. I have to give him at least 4hrs awke time between sleeping or else he doesnt sleep for me. If he is tired more so the usal then he sleeps longer or falls asleep for me before his bed time.
