  • My older one (8 yo boy) stopped when he was about 4 (still did a quiet time in the middle of the day until full day first grade). My younger one (7 yo girl) took naps all through kindergarten.

  • You know, I forget with my kids but my mom said I stopped when I was 2. She would fall asleep and I would play quietly in the room.

  • Max just turned 4 and is only taking a nap if he has had a particularly busy morning or a really bad night. So maybe 1 day a week he's still napping. I must say I have really enjoyed naptime up to this point. Sad to see it go. But preschool is starting back up soon. I wouldn't be surprised if he does start napping on those days since it will require him getting up about an hour before his usual waking time.

  • So far two of mine stopped at 18 months. I am hoping the 3rd who is now 16 months keeps napping for a while longer.

  • I've been a nanny twice and taken care of several (10+) kids 6yrs and under in a daycare and I would say the average age is 4 to 5ish. I know I was 5 when I stopped.

  • my kids quit taking naps (sleeping) when they were 3. Every now and then when they were tired or crabby I will/would make them lay down to rest. I dont care if they fall asleep. its just a resting time
