Dropping the morning nap

Prof, our little girl is almost 11 months. She weights around 11,2kg, eat and drink very well. We took your advise and we dropped the morning nap (she refused the afternoon nap), she now sleeps from 1pm in the afternoon, but she only sleeps for max of 1 hour 30 minutes. I have changed my bed time schedule to accommodate this. She now eats dinner at 16h45, bath at 18:00, bottle and asleep by latest 18:45. She then sleeps until 07:00 in the morning, or later. Is this ok for her?? She does get very tiried late afternoon. I just dont want to let her sleep in the morning, she wakes at 10:30 or 11:00 and then refuses the afternoon nap because then she will be far to tired to eat/ drink bottle in evening. Or must we still try for 2 naps per day? But until when do one try? Apologies for the long discription!

Your baby does not need her morning nap.Her afternoon nap is fine and a 90 minute sleep is good. She is getting enough sleep and she is doing well.
