  • 7-8 months is when DD ditched her second nap. Then I had to make a new routine for just one nap halfway through the day. Go with your babies signals and try to come up with a new naptime routine that works well for the 2 of you and doesn't interfere with her bedtime! She may think she doesn't want/need a nap anymore but at that age she does! My daughter is 28 months and just now getting rid of naps!
