What time does your toddler usually nap?

My two-year-old usually naps around noon everyday, but here lately she's been napping around 5 or 6 PM or not taking a nap at all. Her bedtime is at 8 PM, so if she takes a late nap, she usually gives us a hard time when it's bedtime.

  • 11:30-Noon. If she does it any later she is a grouch the rest of the day.

  • I can't get my 2 year old to nap anymore. She gives me a fit. She goes to bed around 9-9:30 and sleeps until about 10 am. I wish I could get her to sleep a couple hours less at night so should nap a little during the day.

  • My DS generally naps from 12:30-2:45/3. We also have him IN bed between 7/7:30. Many times he does not fall asleep until 8. I have tried waking him from his naps earlier but he is a total grump and STILL stays we just do i that way...some days we put him down @ 11:30 so he will wake up earlier from his's so hard to do that because all toddler activities are based around a 12:30/1 nap time.

    I will say we went through a phase of no naps...a good friend told me NEVER give up trying and sure enough he is napping again...if he DOESN'T nap he is IN bed by 5:30. So if she doesn't nap until 5:30/6 make THAT her bedtime...

  • Mine takes hers anywhere from 1-4 pm - whenever she starts showing signs of giving me an attitude. She's up at 7:30am and running like mad until I force her to go to sleep... which we've been putting our foot down at 9pm, but she stays awake and doesn't fall asleep until 10pm. How long she naps depends on growth spurts too. Not long ago she was taking 3 hour naps for about 2 days and now is back to 30 mins.
