					I usually fed my kids lunch and put them down for a nap between 12-1. If I put them down any later then that it was harder for me to get them down at night.

					I would say around 12pm-1pm usually is a good time to get them to nap anything later could possible cause problems at bedtime good luck!

					In child care, I've watched dozens of kids... I've noticed around 1pm they have usually started wearing themselves out. Later than that, it'll throw off bedtime.

					We always did 1-3 quiet time. That was late enough for them to be tired but early enough so they’d sleep at night. Plus, being right after lunch with a full belly didn’t hurt.

					Whenever you can see those eyes falling and they start to slow down. As well as a little extra cranky. Hope this helps!
