  • At 2 1/2 my daughter's still at it... we pushed through a rough spell where she fought it every day a few months ago. Now she only skips naps when at school (2 days a week till 2:30; they have "rest time" where very few kids in her class sleep); otherwise, she'll go down without a murmur.

  • My oldest stopped when she was 3, she's 15 now. My youngest is 4 and just stopped napping earlier this year.

  • My boys are 5 and 4 and still nap. My younger son acts like he's ready to start growing out of napping but my older son still needs them.

  • Our two older kids, who are now 25 & 18, napped till they were 6 yrs old.(We home schooled, so, it was possible) When they turned 6, it was their choice as to whether they wanted to or not. Some days they did, some days they didn't. Our youngest kids are 3 & 4 & they nap every day & will be given the same option when they turn 6.

  • my boy stopped napping at around 2 - he is 4 now, and I still have him take short 'quiet times' in his room.
