Signs your child may be ready:
*Your child has been consistently sleeping through the night (11 hours) for at least 3 weeks
*Your child is taking longer and longer to fall asleep for his/her morning nap.
*Your child's morning naps are getting shorter and shorter (or it's becoming very long, but he/she resists going down for an afternoon nap)
*Your child's afternoon nap is interfering with his/her usual bedtime.
This transition can be a tricky one. It is not uncommon for children to have some sleep disruption and crankiness for a couple of weeks as their bodies adjust. The key is to gradually make adjustments with your child's nap time and move bedtime a bit earlier during this phase.
