Just curious: How many naps a day?

My 8 1/2 month old girl still takes 2-3 (usually 3) naps a day for about an hour at a time. And she's almost crawling! When do they start taking fewer naps?

  • When my son was around 12 months or so he converted his two shorter naps into one longer nap. He's 31 months now and still takes one nap a day although it used to stretch 2-3 hours and now I'm lucky if he sleeps over 1 hour, lol.

  • My son is 2 1/2 months old and he has anywhere from 2-5 naps a day. Some vary from 15mins-2 hours. I just let him sleep if he wants to. Plus he goes to bed around 11:00-12:00 and sleeps ALL NIGHT!!!! TILL 8:00-8:30AM!!!!

  • My son is 11 months old and normally takes two naps.. he wakes up at 7am, will take an hour nap sometime around 10 or 11am, and then will take another nap (this time 30 minutes - an hour) at around 4:30 or 5pm.. and will go to bed around 9pm.

    Hope this helps! =]

  • Mine was down to two naps at 6 months. At this age, your baby may rather take two longer naps than 3 shorter naps. If she's learning to crawl she may want to play and practice want she's learning more than sleeping.
