When your child falls asleep and its too late for a nap but too early for bed? Normally I wake her up but I'm exhausted and she's been pretty difficult today. Its 7pm and her bedtime is usually around 10 (don't judge lol)

Wake her up after 30 minutes so she gets the cat nap energy. She'll usually go to bed about 2 hours after i wake her up.

At 7pm I'd just keep her asleep for the night. Though my kids bedtime is at 8pm so I'm not sure how your LO will do. She might wake up in the middle of the night or ridiculously early tomorrow morning.

The problem is since she got up at 10:30 this morning and usually goes to bed late she will probably wake up around midnight and think its time to party :/

My 15 months old bedtime is all over the place. Some days its 8pm other days its 11pm. But if she takes a "nap" anytime after like 7pm Id let her sleep for the night

If she won't wake up in the middle of the night I'd do this.

I feel like I could go to sleep myself so I'll probably be up by 5am anyways and wouldn't mind her getting up. She's pretty typically 12 hours down 12 hours up so if she stays asleep she'd probably be up around 7. I start a new job saturday and need to fix our schedule anyways. So it would be great if she just slept but would be horrible if she woke up at midnight and stays up til 4-5am (which she has done in the past!)

I've tried getting her back to sleep when she wakes up in the middle of the night but she'll usually say shes hungry/has to pee, anything to get out of bed. But she's pretty thin and doesnt eat much so I always fall for the I'm hungry excuse >< She did just have dinner right before goign to sleep though so she should be ok

I'd use tonight as a "test" and possibly a starter night for your new schedule. Couldn't hurt :)

I usually do that, if its 2-3hours before bed but I'm so tired right now and running on 4 1/2 hours of sleep that I want to go to bed myself but don't want to risk her waking up in the middle of the night. So either I take the risk or I end up being awake for another 3-4 hours. Blahhh lol :P
