  • I wish, all of mine stopped between 1 1/2 and 2. Even know when we send them to bed around 8 they will lay awake for forever and are up around6. They are going to be bad sleepers like their Mommy.

  • daughter stopped at 2
    but we changed her daycare schedule so she is there at nap time, so she will nap there when all other kids are asleep
    that way she gets two naps in a week
    and sometimes she tips over at home, not so much naps, but tips overs because she can not go on any longer

    she is 3, has sensory seeking part of spd in autism spectrum, so she NEVER stops!

  • My oldest I had to make him stop napping the summer before kinder because it was a full day-no nap school. My youngest refused to take a nap from 15 months on.
