  • yup..he's 2 3/4 and he takes naps generally on a daily bases anywhere from 2-3 hours. I am a firm believer that if your child tries to fight them keep trying...mine did it for 10 days and that was 2 months ago and he has been napping ever since...I think it assumed that thye are ready to give them up before they actually are..therefore the persistant trying doesn't take place and they result in no more napping..

  • My oldest took three hour naps until age two. My youngest took 1.5 hour naps (if I was lucky!) and he also gave them up at age two.

  • 1-2 hours most days (not always). The time varies greatly. If he doesn't have his nap, he's super cranky.

  • my oldest (5) stopped taking naps when we moved here which she was 18 months old. I think she stopped naps because the house we use to live at had one window, but it was like off the pourch and DH had his tool box in front of the window and it made the room pitch black so when we moved here and her room was light she wouldn't sleep lol. My 2.5 year old still takes naps however. She takes a nap anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on how early she wakes and it depends on the time I lay her down. If I put her down at 12 she sleeps until 2 or 3. She might be stopping naps soon though cause lately she has been fighting me and normally she doesn't fight to taske naps although I know she still needs them since she didn't get a nap over the weekend and she was so cranky lol
