Hmmmm... You're preaching to the converted!! We were endlessly tweaking a times at that age! And you just get it right and their needs change again! As the others said though, I wouldn't worry too much if your nights are okay and one of her naps is a long one. A lot of babies this age actually need one long and one shorter nap as they approach the 2-1 transition to keep their nights decent.

We found that tired signs became really unreliable by this age, we were going much more by a times (whilst obviously still being responsive and veering from routine if it was needed) He would display tired signs when bored, wanting a change of scenery, over stimulated etc...

Usually somewhere around 14-15 months, but it's a couple of months of transition before then. Some make the change early, around a year old.

Between 3 to 3.5 hours. I'm treading a fine line between OT and UT.

Any later and she wakes after 30 mins. Its killing me. I can see she's exhausted and she keeps waking up and nothing I do helps.
I am also at the end of my rope with these 30 or 40 min naps. I dont have time at all to myself. It's driving me insane. I feel like I just don't get a break.

Sorry for the whinge. I just am having a bad day  :-[

On another note, the days it looks like she is going to have a long nap, its ALWAYS interrupted by a poo. Always.

Are her nights still good? Sometimes little ones can get in a bit of and UT/OT cycle, they short nap because of short a times but get overtired from repeated short naps. I think this might be whats going on. The only way to get out of it a lot of the time is to stick to an increased a time for few days to give them time to adjust to it and hopefully start taking longer naps. How has she coped with 3.5hrs awake time when you have done it?

Her nights are still good. We had a few bad interrupted nights of teething there, but last night was ok thankfully.

At 3.5 hours her eyes are all red, hanging out of her head, she's all jerky and shouty because she's way overtired.
