  • All of mine napped for an hour, until they started kindergarten. Around age 4, my oldest chose not to nap, but was still required to rest on her bed with her books for an hour.

  • today? not at all... most days we can get in 1-2 hours... some it's closer to 3... all depends on what we are doing. now that it's cold out and we don't get as much outside play and exercise her naps are dwindling... like the sunlight here in WI!

  • She used to nap for about an hour to two hours. She's recently stopped taking naps unless she's in the car on a road trip.
