Well, she might be up late if you don't wake her :)

Now?  I'd let her sleep.  In the future, I'd wake her for dinner around 6 at the latest.

What time is it there?  At age 1, i would just let her sleep and would rewarm dinner if she does wake up.

If she sleeps for that long during a nap then she might be up later during the night. My daughter did that once or twice, nap late then wake up and we ended up having a late night ahead of us. She is two now and when she does nap I won't let her nap after 4pm or else she won't go to bed. I personally would wake her up just to keep her on a routine, my daughter has a routine for meals and bed time, if you don't have one set and don't mind being up later then I wouldn't worry. Do what works best for you!

I would have woken her up. At 1 mine just took one 3 hour nap. Never a late afternoon one.

My daughter did this when she was little and we let her sleep. she wound up sleeping the rest of the night. Depends on the child, she might get up and eat and then go back to bed, which would be ideal of course.

Let her sleep. I always figure my kids know how much sleep they really need.
