  • My son has been down to one nap since he was around 1. I put him down after lunch (around 12:30) and he usually sleeps at least an hour. Sometimes he sleeps as long as three, I just go get him when he wakes up. I figure he wouldn't be sleeping if he didn't need it.

  • She took two naps until about 14 months.
    Now (30 months) she takes just one. Usually starting about noon and lasting anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours. It all depends on how tired she is, if she's sick, and if she is in a growth spurt or not.

  • My son dropped his second nap when he was around 18 months old. Now he has one nap that lasts about two hours. I read that most kids don't nap at all once they get to four years old. Enjoy that quiet while you got it!
