Yeah, my son took naps like 2 times a week. But it wasn't a long nap. Just maybe an hr, if that. It seemed to help him, because he had such meltdowns around 6 oclock. A nap seemed to get him through till bedtime.

some days she does, but i wish she wouldnt because when she does she's never tired enough when it comes closer to bedtime and she'll stay awake until midnight :/

i wish they didnt do naps at daycare...little man is the same way. we have gotten it to where he goes down at 10pm and is up by 730-8am the next morning....we have been trying for earlier each night.

with no nap I can get him in bed before 9

My 5 y/o naps on some weekends. My 4y/o needs one and only goes about 1 day a week without one. I am lucky...all three boys were good nappers!
