Just looking for some reassurance here. We have a very active, curious, verbal 14 month old. She has transitioned to one, longer nap a day but I haven't been able to push her to take that nap at the time when most babies do...which is after lunch, around noon. Instead, she takes that nap anywhere between 9 and 10:30 am, sleeps a good 2 hours or more and then is falling apart and ready for bed by 6/6:30. I've always thought it's best to just go with a baby's natural patterns, so I haven't been actively trying to change things. She wakes up twice during the night wanting to be nursed, and then has a very early wake up time...between 5 and 6:15 am, which stinks, but oh well...
A friend suggested I put her to bed and consider it a nap...then wake her up, feed her more, let her play and put her back down around 9. I think that's a bit odd...I always learned never wake a sleeping baby. Any thoughts?

I think she is a little young yet to be forcing a certain nap time on her. What you are doing is fine.

Next question overall
An ex who told me to move on, was looking for me. What's up with this?
