A child to tease without rest (3)


I believe the answer is:


'a child' is the definition.
(term for a young child)

'to tease without rest' is the wordplay.
'without' suggests deleting specific letters.
'rest' becomes 'ease' (synonyms).
'tease' with 'ease' taken away is 't'.

(Other definitions for tot that I've seen before include "Child's" , "Drop" , "Small quantity of alcoholic drink" , "Add up like infant" , "Arithmetic for infant" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
