A child (3 years 10 months) wakes every morning at 5am.
When he is with me he has a midday nap which can last 3 hours. He is clearly tired when he wants to nap, and if he wakes too early from his nap he will return to sleep - sometimes being quite distressed that he woke early.
He goes to nursery 4 days a week and I assume they let him nap there.
He will start school soon (England: we start formal school very young) and I'm not sure if they'll have napping there.
My question: would removing his midday nap improve his early waking? Or would it just create an over-tired little boy?
