Our son is 3 and we are debating wether to have his daycare provider stop giving him naps.. he IS napping there , so clearly he needs it.. they are on the average of 2 hours long but when he does have a nap, he won't go to bed til 10 to 11 and my husband worksnights so that is hard on our family.. also, when he does get naps, he sleeps SO bad.. like waking 3 to 4 times a night, very restless.. he's never been a good sleeper so I am having a hard time blaming the waking at night ONLY on napping but it seems to be some what consistant.. we can't get this child to nap at ALL at home and that's been since he was 2 so I think it must be the extra children stimulation and activites ( although we try to keep him fully busy ) making him sleep there.. but would this lack of sleeping through the night and staying up late have you asking your provider to stop his naps? I feel guilty because if he is sleeping, clearly he needs it and i hate what feels like punishing him from sleeping because it doesn't work with my husbands hours - but at the same time.. he can't be getting REM sleep waking 3- 4 times a night either so that worries me... what would you do?
