Toddler Nap time & Bed time Battles!

My 21 month old toddler stopped napping around 16 months old. I have tried setting a nap time but he totally refuses and would rather play along with his older brother who does not have naptime. Does anyone know how I could reintroduce a naptime for him? Or should I even try?

The toddler gets up at around 8:30-9:30 every morning and doesn’t go to bed until 9:30 or 10:30 every night. I think he needs more sleep than this because most days he has meltdowns in the early evenings. I have read that experts believe children will get the sleep they need no matter what but I am thinking mine needs more sleep because of his whiny and unruly behavior during most evenings.

So, what’s your toddler’s bedtime and naptime routine? Is this normal?
