  • My oldest when he was 3, my youngest is 3 1/2 and still takes them and will for as long as I can get him too. They have to take naps in Kindergarden, might as well keep napping til then!!!!!

  • My dd is 2 and a half and still takes one nap a day varying fron 1 - 4 hours. Just recently she's been able to skip her nap though if needed (which I try not to do though). A few months ago if she missed a nap all hell would break loose lol.

  • Both of my kids stopped taking regular naps at around a year old. After that, they only took naps when they felt like it.

  • My 2.5 year old takes one most days... but two days she's at school and only does once in a blue moon. At home I get her to almost always, and often she'll sleep 2.5-3 hours, though this past week or so I think we've had two occurrences of no nap (she stayed in bed talking for 1 hour and then we got her up). I guess she's in the in-between stage, because she is more or less totally fine if she misses one, but I want to keep it as long as possible (our 15 month-old goes down for the same afternoon nap, so it's a much-needed breather for me).

  • DD is 3.5 and only takes the occasional nap. She usually sleep from 7pm to 6am. If she naps, it isnt until after 3pm and then she is up til 10pm.
