When did your child go down to one nap a day?

My 10.5 month old seems to want to skip his morning nap lately. Is it too early to take him down to one nap? When did your little ones go down to one nap a day?

  • My DD was down to one nap by her first birthday, so she probably started about the time as your son on not needing that other nap. I say you just go with it, if he doesn't want to nap in the morning maybe put him down a bit earlier in the afternoon if he is crashing, and then he may go to bed a bit earlier, too. And for dd there was definitely a transition period where she would still take two naps somedays, but not others, so I kind of had to watch her cues. Good luck.

  • Somewhere between 12-18 months I believe... every child is different though. You could always try a morning 'quiet time' and an afternoon nap for a while.

  • My kids were around 15 months I think.

  • my daughter is 4 1/2 years and still needs a nap some afternoons.

    I think she was closer to 2, though, before it was strictly 1 nap per day. Its all trial and error though. Try it, see what happens

  • Mine started doing one nap a day around your baby's age. Sometimes it's frustrating but the trade-off is she's conked out by 8 pm.

  • Before a year. He's always been a good night sleeper, but never did like naps much. He's not even 3 yet and barely takes 1 nap a day.
