  • My son is 22 months... he takes one nap right after lunch & it's between 1 and 3 hours long.

  • It depends on how much sleep that get at night... Generally 1 nap 1-3 hours is what most are doing... my sisters little one is just now 24 months but she does 2 naps about 1 hour each.... mine however did NOT nap at that age.... They had 1 hour quiet time in their room but they did not sleep...but then again they went to bed at 5:30 pm and didn't wake up until 6:30 am--- so they were getting every thing they needed in ONE shot....

  • Mine is 23 months and is down to one nap. She sleeps for about 1.5 hours starting somewhere between 11:30 and 12:30 - depending on how tired she is from the morning play.

    Some kids still take 2 at this age but it's rare (normal though!). Some don't take any but that's rare too.

    Sometime before the 3rd birthday is when kids start dropping their naps. Keep in mind that some perfectly healthy, normal kids still nap in kindergarten.

  • By the time both of mine were that age, they would take one nap in the afternoon after lunch. It usually lasted between 1-2 hours, but occasionally stretched to three (well, my younger one still naps, so it still applies to her).

  • My 23 month old usually takes one 2-3 hour nap after lunch, but there are days when he needs 2 and will take a short 30-60 minute nap in the morning or evening depending on when he needs it along with his noon nap.
