Does your 4 year old still take naps?

My daughter just turned 4 a few weeks ago and still takes naps. Now they are not scheduled or consistent, but most days at some point or another, she gets pooped and takes a little nap. Is this common? I'm not worried about her or anything, she's very active, so it does not surprise me that she needs the naps. I'm really just curious, because my niece stopped taking naps at 2.

  • my DD is 4 and she takes naps 2 times a week or so. she has "rest time" during the afternoon where she plays w/ toys in her room and sometimes she falls asleep other times she doesnt. i figure her body knows when it needs a nap.

  • My kids 4, almost 6 and 8 have a quiet time every day. The younger two usually sleep and the 8 year old reads, colors or plays quietly.
