  • Nap time stopped about the time that my daughter turned 2.. Now shes almost 4 and to this day I can count on one hand the times she has napped, which was usually when I had to wake her up around 5am for various reasons lol I so miss nap time. Thank goodness my son is still taking them (he's 18 months)

  • My first quit around 2. She just had way to much mischief to cause to take naps;) The 22 month old still takes a little nap everyday but they have become sporadic. I do miss the long naps I could count on!

  • my 4 year old doesnt take naps often. he will come home from school sometimes and lay down in his bed and fall asleep. he gets quiet time when he is not at helps him calm down a little and then he's back bouncing off the walls.

  • My oldest had to stop napping when she was 4 because she afternoon pre-K; it was really too soon for her. My 3 year old twins are still napping every day.
