Toddler bedtime creeping later and later
Hello :) My daughter (2 years 8 months) has been having an increasingly difficult time falling asleep at bedtime. I'm finding she either drags her feet through the routine or stays up talking to her stuffed animals for... sometimes an hour after I leave the room, or both. She is often not falling asleep til 8:30 or 9 and reliably wakes up around 6. She still naps most days for at least 2 hours and occasionally is wiped enough to have a mega nap.
We have had very good sleep routines since she was 2 months old. It has of course been bumpy at times but for the most part she's been down for the night by 7 or 7:30. I thought maybe she just needed to go to sleep a little later but 9 feels extreme.
Any ideas what's going on? I'm worried she is not getting enough sleep and also worried she might not be tired when I put her down and that is increasing her normal no-type behavior unnecessarily.
