When did your baby go down to 1 nap?

Hi everyone! I'm a big question-poster today! hahaha! I'm just wondering when your child went from 2 naps to 1?
I've read typically anywhere from 15-18mos, but it has been brought to my attention that since my daughter is not sleeping through the night (at 11mos) and needs to be rocked at night that maybe she's getting too many naps. She's tired enough for both of them, though... hmmm not sure! Thank you!

  • My oldest took 2 naps until he was 18 months..and I had to stop them..he wasn't ready. My youngest stopped taking 2 at 9 months and stopped taking naps altogether at 15 months. I still made him lay down..but he never went to sleep after 15 months. My oldest was sleeping throught the night even with 2 naps. My youngest slept through the night about 13 months old.

  • that same thing happened with both my youngest two. So I took away their mid morning nap and just gave them an afternoon nap.They were then sleeping through the night. With my youngest I limited the nap to two hours because then she will sleep to long in the afternoon and bedtime was not fun.

  • my dd went down to 1 nap at about 11 months! it depends on when she wakes up tho! sometimes she takes 2 but i try to keep her up to get her to one nap so she doesnt mess up her routine!! she sleeps all night with one nap!

  • She just turned 8 months and some days she only does one nap, but some days she does 3. I dont think it has anything to do with sleeping through the night.
