  • unfortunately only a few days a week for an hour to an hour and a half. but when i had my youngest, now 1, it was just too hard to deal with a hold me baby and get oldest to nap so she phased out of them. I wish she would though

  • No mine doesn't and if she does want one she wants it at 5pm then i take her outside to play instead, taht way when she eats dinner she just knocks out.

  • She does about 45 minutes of "resting time" every day after lunch. Usually it's just her sitting in her bed and quietly reading some books...but some days it turns into a nap which will usually last about 2 hours.

    She's sort of in that transitional phase between needing and not needing a nap, so the resting time is a good solution for us.

  • No she doesn't most of the time. If she gets up really early, like I have to be at campus erally early for some reason so she has to go tro daycare extra early well then yeah, if she stayed up she'll sleep for maybe an hour or two.

  • My daughter just turned 3 last month and she pretty much refuses naps anymore. If she is like completely exhausted, she will fall asleep for maybe an hour if I am lucky lol

  • No, my Son cut out naps a couple months ago. The only time He absolutely needs one is if He didn't get enough sleep the night before, which isn't often. He is nearly 3 1/2.

  • IT DEPENDS SHE JUST DOESN'T ALWAYS NAP BY HERSELF IF SHE IS BAD & I SEND HER TO HER ROOM SHE FALLS ASLEEP FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR OR MORE.

  • My daughter quit taking naps at three. If she does get a nap, I am up all night so I am okay with no nap.

  • Our son will be 4 in February. He takes naps at home usually between 2-3 hours.....At daycare he goes to the nap room, but rarely sleeps....but will lay quietly. He must be catching up on it on the weekends.
