shorter naps??

my son seems to be taking shorter naps now a days. it used to be 3 hours, and now it's 2. and even today he slept for an hour and started waking up when i walked in the room to get something.. so i layed with him and he went back to sleep. but im a little concerned because he's only 2 and i thought the naps get shorter when they turn 3 or 4. advice??

  • It depends on the child. Sometimes when they're not growing they tend to not need as much sleep. Sometimes they also tend to eat less. Don't worry it might be temporary, or he just might not need as much sleep as he used to.

  • My 2 year old naps for 1 1/2-2 hours a day.

    My 3 year old doesn't nap at all.

    It totally depends on the individual kid.
