  • I say if she is still sleeping through the night and isn't giving you any trouble going down to bed then just leave it alone. She will let you know when she has been sleeping too much throughout the day.

  • She still needs the sleep. There is no exact age when kids drop to one nap... most do so by 18 months but only "most", not "all".
    Keep letting her sleep as she wants. Just wait until she starts refusing one of the naps, then work on dropping the morning one.

  • I would not do anything, if she sleeps throught the night you are a very lucky woman. enjoy yourself during the naps.
