  • Yes, thank goodness! For at least 2 hours and if she doesn't get that nap she is falling asleep on the couch by 6 pm.

  • All children are different. My oldest quite taking naps at 18 months, stayed up til 10pm or so, then up with the sun. My youngest took naps even through kindergarten.

  • My first did till she was 6 yrs old when Kindergarten quite having them in Dec. She is 7 yrs old and still does from time to time. My second is 3 yrs old(soon to be 4 yr in a month and half). She stopped taking them every day this summer. But does still take them from time to time. She will more when her sister is at school.

  • Naps are starting to be hit and miss with my 4yo. He has always been a good napper (took two naps a day til he was 2, then one 3 hour nap every day up til now) but preschool is messing with his schedule. He is in school from 12:30-3, which is usually when he naps, and i think he's just getting to the point that he doesn't need a big nap, just a little "rest time". Some days he really NEEDS a nap though, but he fights it.
