10 month old sleep Help! He had a very late nap. Would you wake him up your 10 month old to get ready for bed or let him/her keep sleeping, hoping he'll just sleep through the night??

Fell asleep for a nap at 6 pm. Usually falls asleep at 8 30 pm. Woke up an hour earlier than normal this morning too... Haha, I'd prefer to let him keep sleeping if a few people think it would work!

  • I would let him sleep. Then maybe tomorrow be more aware of whether he is feeling okay or if he isn't. I would also consider getting him back on his sleep schedule. Tomorrow may be just fine too.

  • My son wont sleep through the night without a bath so Id wake him. Hes 13 months and no matter how late he falls asleep, he'll wake up a couple hours later if he hasnt had a bath. If he has, hes out til 7.

  • When my children fall asleep early I let them sleep. Sometimes they sleep through and sometimes they wake wanting a bottle/sippy.

  • let him sleep you might have to get up a little early. Or is it worth fighting with a cranky baby because you woke him/her up?
