Until what age a child needs daytime sleep, preschoolers

Now my daughter is almost five and a half years old. Many of her peers do not sleep during the day for a long time. And I often see how people are surprised when I say that we still do without daytime sleep very rarely.

Or maybe it’s time to abandon the rest day and go into adulthood? Many people assure me that such a daily routine is a complete inconvenience and discomfort.

As it was before

We never had problems with sleep, the daughter likes to sleep very much – all in dad. Our regime was always clear: up to half a year – three sleep, after half a year – two, and after a year the baby finally went into one dream.

This mode was very convenient for me, I could always plan my day taking into account these free hours for me. I could calmly clean up, cook, wash and even coat my nails with varnish.

Under dreams, I planned to walk and do things outside the house — a shop, meetings with my girlfriends, etc. I was unable to change the mode – everyone knows how a child who wants to sleep behaves. It certainly tears and screams and whims.

After three years, my daughter did not even think about giving up daytime sleep. This kind of rest is extremely necessary for her – after all, it is necessary to get up early in the kindergarten, and nobody has canceled the habit of going to bed late.

Theoretically, it would be possible to try to put to bed early in the evening. The daughter of my girlfriend, for example, falls asleep already at 20-20: 30, but this is too much, as it seems to me, because we only have 20 exercises in gymnastics, and still need to get home, eat, etc.

In principle, the daughter is not against falling asleep before, and when she is left to sleep with her grandmother – at 22 she is already asleep. But, unfortunately, in the conditions of a one-room apartment it is quite difficult to put the child to bed earlier.

In addition, we come home late, she still wants to play, watch cartoons, talk with dad (or wait for him to return from work), sometimes you need to do homework for a kindergarten.

It is precisely because of a not so long (8–9 hours) night of sleep that I still welcome daytime sleep. If I may say so, this way it compensates for the body’s need for rest. Besides, I do not force anything to sleep by force.

The only negative that may be in this case is the inconvenience with daytime activities. It often happens that we are invited to visit or on children’s birthdays, which are scheduled for lunchtime. Of course, we do not refuse, just in such cases, the daughter sleeps longer at night.

Now she no longer has such that in the evening, bad behavior and moods begin because of lack of sleep. Rather, it happens very rarely. Still, the load gives its own – this is additional classes, and active walks.

Pluses, of course, too. First, the child is resting, recuperating and waking up in a great mood. Secondly, again, I can plan my day – work during the day, go to the hairdresser or even sleep.

It is possible that we will soon give up on daytime sleep, going from regularity to isolated cases, as our peers have long done. But so far, the daughter has such a need, and she goes to bed on her own during the day – there will be a daytime sleep, whatever the surrounding people say.

And how old were your children sleeping during the day?
