when did your child stop napping?

My daughter's not even 2 yet, I'm just curious. I've heard some people say their kids napped till 5, others that they gave it up during the 2s. I love the nap! How long can I make it last?

  • LOL good luck. DS dropped his when he was almost 3. Occasionally I can get him to fall asleep but it is rare. He doesn't even nap during nap time at school.

  • My daughter went to a sitter in her home and took a nap every day until she was 4. Occasionally she went down slower, but did sleep. Of course she was being dropped off early around 6:30a.m. She needed her sleep!

  • My son stopped napping around 18 months... But he does have quiet time still where he lays down and looks at books or watches a movie.

  • My son is gonna be 4 next month and he still takes a good 2 hour nap everyday. He loves his sleep though.. he tells me "I'm ready for a nap mama".
