  • My kids were never napped. Really bad mom of me but I just never seen the point. We were out all of time. They would fall asleep in the car but had to get right back up. They didn't have a set nap time but sometimes when we were in the house they would doze off right where they were playing. But they never slept to long during the day. I never pushed the issue. Howevever they did go to bed early I'm talking 8 and were back up by 7 in the morning.

  • My oldest stopped napping right after she turned 2. My middle two kids took daily naps until they were 4 1/2. My son stopped taking daily ones after that but, at 7, he still takes a nap here and there. My other middle child continued taking almost daily naps until she started kindergarten in the fall. She goes full day and they don't have nap time and she comes home exhausted and we sometimes make her lie down when she gets home at 2:30. She's 6.
    My youngest is almost 3 and doesn't take daily naps. She probably takes 4 naps a week, depending on what we are doing.
    None of them ever had a set "nap time". They just went to bed whenever they were tired.
