  • My oldest slept for 2-3 hours after lunch at that age. My youngest napped for 1.5 hours after lunch if I was lucky! The one year old I do child care for naps for 1.5 to 2.5 hours after lunch. Some days short, some long.

  • I have raised three children and they are all different. I had one that rarely napped, she was just too busy, but I did make her lay down even though I knew she might not sleep.

  • My oldest took two naps a day at that age--one in the morning and one in the afternoon; each was at least an hour long (sometimes an hour in the morning and two hours or more in the afternoon, sometimes evenly split between the two). My youngest NEVER did nap (or even sleep much, for that matter)--it was a miracle if he slept 15 minutes at a time (I was exhausted). So not sure what 'normal' would be.
