  • mine stopped at two

    if she gets really over done, sometimes i drive around in car and she will "tip over" for a while as long as i continue to drive, and not stop
    i do the alleys, can go slow and constant

    i know - wasting gas
    can not get ANYTHING done while she sleeps, but once or twice a week, seems needed to recharge

    do not worry, once teem years come, again, she will nap, not be able to wake her-lol

  • yes.. my son stopped at like 20 months.... i found that if he napped at all... he would stay up till like 1 and 2 in the morn... so i wouldnt let him nap... now my daughter will be 2 in sept and she still naps for like 2 hours a time once a day... and she still goes to bed at like 9 or 10.. so it is more tiring and you never get a break but it means they are growing and they dont need it and that they go to bed early tired... so they sleep good all night....

  • My kids weren't big nap people when they were toddlers, either. We did "quiet time" where I would read to them, but they very rarely took naps.
