  • Some days my daughter wouldn't take one at all, some days she would take two or three really short ones. I think it varies from baby to baby.

  • my son is 16 months and takes either 1 or 2 a day depending on how long the nap was or what time he woke up in the morning...

  • my four children usually took a mid morning nap and a mid afternoon nap but don't let the afternoon nap last too long or you'll be up all night

  • My daughter takes one from 12-2 and she's been like that since she was a year old.

  • she takes 1 and if we are out she takes one in the car in the afternoon. when she is home with me she is a morning napper but it depends on what time she gets up in the morning. at daycare they do the afternoon naps. she is pretty good about sleeping even if she has a late nap but i try not to have her nap later then 3.

  • At that age my two were taking one nap. One son would sleep for 3 hours; the other for 1.5 hours (maybe!)
