How long does your 2 year old nap?

Just wondering what the average is.

  • Well she used to nap for an hour or two during the day. Now she doesn't nap at all. I didn't stop the naps, it was just every time I put her in her room for a nap, she would get out of bed and play move her bed around and stuff so I figured "this isn't working" BUT if your 2 year old isn't taking naps, even younger, its best for them to have some "quiet time" during the day so they can relax and maybe fall asleep. My little girl will sit with me while her little sister naps and sometimes she falls asleep sometimes she just sits quietly and calms down.:)

  • Depends on the 2 yr old. Some are actually giving up naps at that age while others still desperately need the nap and will nap from 30 minutes to close to 2 hours.

  • 1 1/2 to 2 hours usually. He's fighting the naps, but he REALLY needs them still.

  • That's about how long mine naps- 2 hours or so. He still needs them REALLY badly as well. If he doesn't get one in he'll be asleep at 6:30 and waking me up at 4am! No thank you! lol

  • all my children (ages 4, 2, &1) still nap. my 2 year old naps about 1-2 hours everyday. there are days we get busy and she goes without a nap, and then i put her to bed a half hour to an hour earlier depending on her level of crankiness
