How old was your child when they stopped taking naps?

My daughter is 2 1/2 and she would not nap for me today. Just wondering what age kids usually stop taking naps.

  • My son was 4. The only reason that I quit giving him naps was because he started staying up until all hours of the night! He is in school now, but when he was not I would make him sit and watch a movie quietly or something like that for about 30-45 minutes. I made him do that when my other children were taking their naps. It gave me a break and some quality time with him!

  • My son is 3 1/2 and only occasionally takes naps now. Don't base it on whether she wants to nap. Decide whether or not she needs a nap. If she's cranky every afternoon, she still needs a nap.
