  • mine quit naps at 18 months (not for lack of my trying to get them to nap too).

    if my youngest (3) has had an active day - zoo, hiking, swimming - she may fall asleep in the truck to get the others from school but thats about it.

  • I don't remember mine were both took naps 2 times a day at 9 and then again at 11 or 12 until they were like 18 months old. Don't remember how iold they were when they stopped sleeping all day though. My 2 year ol now take a nap at 1130 or 12 and wakes up anywhere from 1 or 3 my 4.5 year old sometimes I make her go to her room for quiet time or to try to nap, but she hasn't really taken a nap since she was about 3

  • all three were only having one nap a day by 8-9 months.

  • Uhh...from birth. Mine never napped.

    But it's going to vary baby to baby. There's no age you can count on for anything to do with sleep.

  • My youngest wasn't awake for a majority of the day until around 6 months. At that point he was up in the morning at 7, went to bed at 7 pm and took 2-2 hour naps in between.
