My son is two, and he has only taken a few naps in the past couple months. He used to be pretty good about taking them for anywhere from 1-3 hours a day, but he's always been the type to fight sleep--even as an infant. He usually yawns around lunchtime and has meltdowns from being exhausted at dinner, so I think he still NEEDS the nap. I could use a break in the middle of the day, and I know he could use more sleep--he just fights it. We just put him to bed early when he skips them, but that makes it hard to go places in the evening. If he would do quiet time, that would be something, but he usually won't do that either. It's driving me crazy! I have friends with 3 and 5 years old who still nap, so I thought he would nap until at least age 3 or 4. I'm going to keep trying for naps/quiet time most days, but it doesn't look promising so far.
