When do your kids nap and for how long? And for you moms who's kiddos have outgrown nap time, when/or at what age did you stop napping them?

My kids all nap usually around 1 or 2pm and for around 30-45mins. My oldest doesn't always nap but still lays down with a book.

 My girls are 7.5 and 5.5. Both of them rest just about every day. After lunch around 1 or 130, they go to their bed and at least read quietly usually until about 3.

Depending on the day, there are times where I tell them they must sleep, eyes closed and covered up.... both of them will generally fall asleep then...they still need that recharge once in a while.

My son rarely ever napped from birth.  That kid just would NOT sleep.  My daughter is 5 and she still naps sometimes.  For two hours a day, my kids (and my nephew I baby-sit) have quiet time.  They have to read for an hour, and then they can color/draw/watch tv.

 DD1 napped until the day she started Kindergarten, it was a rough transition!  She was so grumpy!  LOL 

DD2 is 2 years old and naps for 1 1/2 - 3 hours depending on how much I wear her out during the day.  :)  Usually around 12:30 or 1 after lunch.

Ah,  my favorite time of the day! My oldest son (6yrs) doesn't always sleep but my middle son (4yrs) does. Mon-Fri around 1:30 till whenever they wake up. If the 6yr old doesn't sleep then I let him get out of bed arund 3pm. I also have a 2 month old son but naptime doesn't apply to him because he sleeps almost all the time rigt now.

My 2 year old still naps, usually later in the afternoon. (between 2-4pm) I'm pretty open and relaxed, no set times for napping so whenever he crashes out :) He will usually sleep anywhere from an hour to 3hrs! The last week or so though,  its been affecting bedtime so trying to wean naps out.  Going to miss that quiet time LOL
