DD (just turned 2) doesn't go to bed until 10 pm, she's always had a late bedtime because both me and DH stay up late and we'd rather have her sleep later in the morning. She usually sleeps 10pm-9am and naps at 3pm for 2-3 hours. I am going back to work, I start mid November. DD will have to start getting up 7:30-8 am and most likely nap at 12 at daycare. How should I get her bedtime earlier? Do like 15 minutes every few days? Should I do her nap times 15 minutes earlier those days, too?
Also, DD is still in her crib. She is a great sleeper and will lay in her crib and play for a long time, seriously like an hour, until she falls asleep or we get her out after she wakes up. She could climb out if she wanted, DH has seen her try when he was in the room but redirected her. Should we switch to a toddler bed now and deal with wake ups before I start back to work? Or leave her in the crib for as long as possible and switch her when both DH and I are working?
