So Jace has been on a 2 nap schedule since he was six months. Each nap is usually around 1 hour. He's now 8 months... he was sick on Monday and we had to take him into the Dr. during what would have been his morning nap, so he didn't get to nap until 11:30 then he slept for 2.5-3 hours so he skipped his afternoon nap that day.
Well ever since that day he refuses to take his morning nap and he waits until 11:30 then sleeps for 2.5-3 hours... is it okay that he is only napping 1x day as long as he is getting in the hours?
His bedtime is 7:30 and he used to wake up at 7:30am but since he started napping late now he sleeps until 8:00-30.
This fine by me... but I just thought he should have two naps instead of one or does it not matter as long as he gets 1 long nap? I just thought it wasn't until 1 year or later that this would happen... should I try and switch it back or stick with it as is?

At 4 months my son will nap when he wants. He has no day schedule. Sometimes he'll take one good 2 to 3 hour nap, other days he will take several 20 minute naps as the day goes on. One thing he does EVERY NIGHT is go to sleep by 8PM, and stay asleep until about 4 am. With that, I am HAPPY.
