Does your child still take a nap? how old are they?

my 3 year old son still naps for about 1-2 hr. a day after lunch. I will milk this as long as I can, he is always on the move:)

  • no but I do! lol mine are 13, 10 and 8 but my active one was my now 10 yr old and I refused to let her nap after age 2 because she would be up til 3 am! I had a hell of a time getting daycare centers to NOT give her a nap due to state law....I had to actually petition the state with a dr.s' note to NOT give her naps so she would sleep at night! Now, she goes to bed like a charm...must be getting into the teen sleep stage already! lol

  • My DS,2, is napping right now! YEAH!!! He will sleep for about 2 hours and will still go to bed for the night by 8:30and he doesn't get up until 7:00am.
    DS,11, needless to say doesn't nap anylonger, but he did until he came out of kindergarten.
