  • It depends on what time he wakes in the morning mostly. If he sleeps in until 7/7:30 then I will give him lunch at 11 and then lay him down for a nap after around 11:30-12pm. I let him sleep until 3:00. If he gets up at 5 am then I lay him down for a morning nap around 7am, and if he only naps for two hours then I lay him down for another nap around 1-2(at the latest) and let him sleep until 3pm. If he sleeps from 7am-11/:30 then he doesn't get another nap.

  • Usually I try to have him laying down around noon and I wake him by 2pm. If he sleeps longer, which he would gladly take a three hour nap, he won't sleep at night. Also if he happens to sleep in (past 9:30) then he doesn't take a nap at all.

  • My son (who is 2.5) hardly ever takes a nap... But he sleeps 12-14 hours a night... Sometimes he'll fall asleep and sleep anywhere from 30-60 minutes, but usually he's going strong all day

  • During the week at daycare nap is from 11:30 to 2:00, but on the weekend it is usually 30 minutes to an hour later.

  • these day's, I'm lucky if she takes a nap. At day care, naps are from 11:30 until about 2, but most of the time she just has "quiet time" and doesn't actually nap. At home, it's about half an hour after lunch, whenever that is based on when she woke up. at the lastest, it's 2. And usually then it's just quiet time for an hour or so. Sometimes she'll get a good 2 hour nap in, though.

  • My daughter is 2 and she usually takes a nap about 3 hours after waking up. So usually about 12. And she naps for 2 hours.
