Should toddlers have an afternoon nap (or not)

Afternoon Nap or not?

This largely depends on your individual children. They may still need an afternoon sleep, or they might be fine to go without. If you find that they are sleeping too long in the afternoons and not wanting to settle or have a place at school nursery in the afternoons you might find that they need to have a shorter nap or skip one full stop. If they are cranky in the afternoon but finding it difficult to sleep at night, they might need a short nap. Sometimes sleep problems are caused by lack of sleep rather than having too much of it! (Yes I know it sounds a bit bizarre, but adults also get too tired to sleep!)
