  • Mine started taking 1 nap after they turned 2. Unless they are really really tired

  • Mine transitioned around 1 year old and then dropped the naps around 2. But I know of other children who took a nap even up to going to school. Each child is different. If yours really needs the sleep then stay with it.

  • I found my toddler transitioned herself. She's 19 months now and still occasionally will nap twice. Usually if something make her wake up early from her previous nap (like a thunderstorm) or if it's really hot out.

  • DS is 22 months and has been "transitioning" for like 6 months. basically that means that sometimes he doesnt fall asleep for his afternoon nap and goes to bed early. LOL

  • My girl kicked one of her naps on her own at 13 months. She is a great sleeper but, when she was ready to quit her second nap, she let us know by crying at naptime and bedtime and she stopped sleeping through the night. The transition from two naps to one nap took about a week. She went from taking 2 one hour naps at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to one 2 hour nap from 11 or 12 until 1 or 2 p.m. and she goes down for the night at 7 p.m., sleeping all the way through until 6:30 or 7 a.m.
