my son will be 3 in october. we had a few weeks where he took about an hour (or 2!) to fall asleep for his nap, so then he would fall asleep around 2 and sleep until 5. of course then he wouldn't be ready to fall asleep in the evening at a decent time. we realized the days that he doesn't nap he falls asleep very well at night. he will get a little grumpy in the evening but not as bad as napless days were when he was slightly younger.
so now we are faced with dropping naps altogether so that he actually is tired when bedtime rolls around, or keep trying to make him nap when he's not tired until later in the afternoon, and then he's not tired at night!
so we decided to drop naps, but i wondered if anyone else's child stopped napping so soon. i was really hoping he would nap for at least another year or so.
btw, i work full time 1st shift and DH works 33 hrs per week 2nd shift
