How many naps does your 2 year old take and for how long?

Mine is so inconsistent. Sometimes she will take a 1 hour and other days, she will take a 3 hour nap. But it's only ever 1 nap per day. Is it terrible that I always hope for the 3 hour nap? lol I always get so much more done that way.

  • Mine is also inconsistent... but we have the wonderful, wonderful quiet time. Twice a day (around "nap" time), my toddler has to hang out in her room quietly. She can read books or rest if she wants... it doesn't have to be sleeping. But it does have to be quiet.

    It has saved my sanity.

  • My son takes between 1-2 naps per day. The firstis a brief 30 minute to 1 hour long nap around 10am. The second isa 1hour to 2 hour nap around 1pm. However I am starting to notice that as we get closer and closer to his 2nd birthday he doesn't seem to need his naps as much as he use to.

  • One a day. She just turned two. Usually right after lunch and she sleeps about 2 hours but some days if I'm lucky 3... She always sleeps though... not just rest time yet...

  • He has one nap a day that is almost always 2 hours. Occasionally it'll last 2 1/2 hours and rarely it'll go onto the 3rd hour. He sleeps less at night than the average 2 year old, though. I think that's what we get such good naps out of him!

  • Jenna is 2 1/2. She goes down around 2:30-3. She will sleep for at least 1.5 hours sometimes 3. But she goes down everyday! My boy is almost 5 and he sleeps about an hour.

  • My son is almost 21 months. He takes one nap during the day...but I hope that it happens before 4pm otherwise he is up really late.
