  • Both my boys gave up their naps around the age of two. You might try a quiet time each day.

  • Lillian started doing that around two. She will be three in June and still doesn't nap regularly. Every now and then she will take one if she is sick or got up a little earlier than usual. In general she goes to bed around 9 is and up between 8 and 9 in the morning and doesn't nap throughout the day.

  • My son stopped at 2 also - we were lucky that he didn't get too cranky but would go to bed early.. but he's 3 now and can run off 8 hours so he never needed much sleep...

  • my son is 2 1/2 and only naps some days. I do notice that when mine doesn't nap he is more crabby in the evening. I think it depends on the kid but there is nothing wrong with not napping at 2 and if it works for your son that's great.

  • I so feel you right now. My 2 yr old recently stopped napping, and he is a total bear by 5 or 6pm.
    What really sucks is now when he does actually take one, he's wide awake until midnight.h
