  • I moved mine between 2 1/2 and 3. I think they were done napping.

  • My oldest is 4 and middle DD is 2 1/2, they both stopped napping around 2 yrs old so thats about when we swithed to toddler/twin beds. Sometimes my 2 1/2 yr old might take a nap but she usually just naps on the couch during the day.

  • My oldest at 2.5 years ( he loved his crib!) and my youngest at 19 months because he kept climbing out of the crib. He never gave me a problem staying in it for naps. They both gave up their naps at age 2

  • My daughter is 2 1/2 and we are in the process of moving her into her big girl bed. :) she loves it!! I have been starting out by sleeping on the floor next to her, so she doesn't get scared. Little harder for us I guess b/c we have always co-slept. She is really enjoying it. she has always napped on the couch.

  • my oldest was about 18 months, my daughter was 11 months, my youngest was 12 months - my oldest taught my other ones to climb out!!! nap time was hard somedays, i would have to stay in there with them until they fell alseep. my youngest stopped naps at 18 months. my daughter loved naps :) most days it was easier to let her fall asleep on the couch then move her!

  • When she was 18 months old and tall enough to crawl out of her crib on the lowest setting, She was already giving up naps so the struggle remained.

  • DS was 18 months. He was just moved to a cot at the daycare I worked at and a family member gave us a car shaped toddler bed. He had hardtime staying on the cot and I wish I would have waited a little longer but I thought I didn't have a choice but anyways. He loved his bed.At first he would get up because he knew he could. That only lasted about a week. Just had to keep putting him in there.

  • Both kids were about 15 months, they went into a twin bed. The toddler bed is a waste of time and money IMO. Nap time went fine, sometimes I would lay down for a few minutes. They stopped napping about 2 1/2

  • I co-slept until I moved them into a bed. My first was about 2 1/2 and my second was about 1 1/2. At nap time, they come into my room and we take a nap together, so it hasn't been hard at all.
