  • My 2 1/2 year old dropped her nap at 2 years old. She now sleeps from 8:30 PM to 7:30-8:00 AM ish (how i miss her nap time!!!)
    My 14 month old daughter goes to sleep at 7:30 PM and wakes up at 7:30 AM and naps from about 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM

  • My son doesn't nap unless He didn't get His usual 11-12 hours of sleep at night..and it's rare that He doesn't get His usual amount of sleep.

  • Mine were not napping at that age and consistently slept 11-12 hours a night. Bedtime was 7:30 for years

  • About 15 hours, consistently. And he needs it.

    He goes to bed by 8:00 at the lastest, usually wakes up between 7 and 8 in the morning, and he still naps every day, generally 3-4 hours. And he's a butt if he doesn't get enough sleep. My mom says I was the same way.

    But he's an abnormality from what I understand. I'd say probably half of 3-yr-olds that I know of don't nap (still less of 4-yr-olds), and the ones that do only nap 1-2 hours. It's an individual needs thing.
