  • well it could be numbers of reasons. but usually i found that this age its usually about exploring. they are getting around better and into everything. sleeping takes aways from all their fun. mine is 18months and into everything. so totally understand. somedays there are 2 some days there are only 1. its more about their curiosity and their learning. good luck

  • Usually by the time they hit one they are ready to give up the two naps. Both of my kids wanted to give up the morning nap around 11 months or so. They just are too busy and curious to want to sleep. Now your child will probably only need one good afternoon nap until he/she is about four years old.

  • Between 12-24 months, kids start taking only one nap a day. It's typically in the 15-18 month range, so your LO is probably starting to adopt a one nap a day schedule

  • My twins take one or two naps depending on the day. When they take one they are usually ready for bed a little sooner. Its normal for a kid to ddo that.

  • My DS was pretty much done with 2 naps @ that point. Some days he would and others he wouldn't. By 16 months he went to 1.
