  • At about that age, my twin sons went from 2 naps to 1. So they went down for naps at 12:30 p.m., which was about 6.5 hours after they woke up in the morning. At now 3 years old, they still have the same schedule except that they nap for only about 1-1.5 hours instead of 2-3 hours.

  • my dd use to take two naps from 1 year to 18 years old.. she'd get up around 9 am.. nap at noon for an hour.. up at around 1 and nap again around 4 or 5, then at 9 pm it was bed time.

    from 18-2 years old, it was one nap.. she'd get up around 8 am, nap at noon for about an hour and a half, maybe two hours, then up and bed at around 9pm.

    she's 2 1/2 right now, and doesn't always nap.. if she does, it's normally around 1 and for an hour. Or sometimes she crashes out around 4.

    I don't bother enforcing nap time any more, because she won't take them if she's not tired, so if she naps she naps.. she typically still sleeps 12-13 hours a night so I'm not overly concerned.
