  • 2 years old.... At 3 years old he pretty much stopped the naps, but has a consistent 8pm bedtime. So it works well.

  • Wow... only one?

    Both my kids only ever had one nap a day by the time they were doing anything predictable, and my youngest gave up napping (much to her misery and ours) before she turned 1. I would have arranged it differently, if I could have, but she didn't ask permission.

  • Around 11-12 months... She used to take a nap from 10-11 then maybe 3-4 but we have managed to get her down from 11-1 most days, it is so much more convient :)

  • I think she was just over a year old. She wouldn't take a nap at all now (she is 2) if she had her way, but with a newborn in the house and all the school work +house work+working part time that I have on my plate it's also a benefit for me if I can get her down for a nap in the afternoon. And she is much better behaved on the days she takes a good nap.
