Noon - 2:30 Nap
4:30 - 5:30 Nap
7PM - Bed

This just really seems like a lot of sleep to me. I think an hour in the am and then two hours in the pm are fine. I don't think she needs an extra hour in the afternoon. Dad also says that when she stays home with him she will sleep 2 hours in the AM and again in the PM. I don't wake her up, she wakes up on her own. There are also days where in the AM she doesn't nap but that is just the age. My other 2 her age do not nap in the AM, only the two hours in the PM and still go to bed at a normal hour.
The parents want her to sleep MORE??? At her age she should be sleeping about 12 hours a day. That's a solid night sleep and one nap. If she gets tired very fast, I would suggest her pedi. is consulted, because there may be something going on. If they are just wanting her to sleep more or she doesn't get enough physical exercise, then it's a change of lifestyle and attitude that is needed.
