  • My son is two and he's basically gave up naps a couple months ago. Occasionally he'll sleep in the car on a long car ride, but that's rare since I try to be home during his usual nap time. I've been trying to get him used to the idea of 'quiet time' for about an hour a day. The only things in his room are a few books and a couple stuffed animals, so his choice is quiet play or go to sleep. Some days he seems fine with it (but never goes to sleep) and other days he throws a fit or keeps calling for me to come back in there. I definitely miss him taking regular naps!

  • My son will be 2 in march. He takes naps some days, only when he is super cranky, and NOthing satisfies him, I just put him in his bed, he pouts and shouts for about 5 mins, then he goes to sleep for about an hour then he's all charged up lol.
