Post subject: 3 yr old keeps falling asleep
Hi. DS turned 3 end last week. Since he was about 2 and half he stopped having day time naps. He wakes at 7am and goes to bed around 7:30pm (latest). If he accidentally napped (fell asleep on sofa), then he would stay awake till 21:30...
But the past week he has been falling asleep on the sofa come 18:00. yesterday he fell asleep at the dinner table at 5pm. Is this normal? He refuses to go down for a nap in the afternoon.
Why the sudden tiredness? When he falls asleep like that its impossible to wake him, so I usually let him have a cat nap of 20min and then I wake him up. Tonight I decided to just put him in his bed and see. He did not wake up. I hope he keeps sleeping till 7am tomorrow... Maybe a good sleep will do the trick?
