View Full Version : Does your toddler... nap?
Well thats pretty much the question.
Mine gave up the daytime nap at about 20 months (shes 2 now), not through lack of trying on my behalf, Id put her to bed at the usual time and she'd just play for an hour in her bedroom, so I thought transferring her back to the cot for daytime naps may help but she just played in her cot for an hour LOL.
Anyway, she now stays awake all day and goes to bed at 7pm (the same as always).
The only time I put her to bed is when she is having a tantrum which is not so often.
What do your toddlers do?
Mine have all stopped between 14months and 17 months. Them napping meant they'd stay up until 9-11pm and still be up at 5/6am so keeping the nap out of the equation meant an average of 7pm-6/7am sleeping and happier baby and me not having to fight them to sleep I was much happier with that.
My DD will be 3 next month. she doesn't nap when she is at daycare 3days a week but on the other days when she is at home she has a nap - usually 2hrs between 1pm and 3pm.
occasionally she goes without but she is a much happier kid to be around on the days she naps.....i'm hoping we can keep up the afternoon nap till she goes to school!
My DD just turned two. She still has a two-ish hour nap during the day, then goes to bed around 7pm.
My four-year-old DS stopped having day sleeps when he was around three. Well, I stopped him having day sleeps, because I just couldn't get him to go to bed at night. I'll do the same thing with my DD - I'm hoping to drag these day sleeps out for as long as possible though!
Both DS and DD wake up between six and seven every day.
DD is nearly 19 months and still had a day sleep that can be anywhere up to 3 hours. I hope she keeps it up for as long as possible. It's the only time I have to do any housework!
My DD stopped having a day time nap when she was 3 (an hour somewhere between 12 and 2). I knew she was ready to give it up when she'd refuse to go to sleep (instead she had quiet time in her room) and would happily crash at bedtime.
DD is 23 months and has a nap occasionally but she gave having one every day months ago. If she does nap it is for around an hour or hour and a half.
Doesn't bother me as she usually sleeps 13 hours straight overnight :D
DS is 2.5 and still naps for an hour a day. Every now and then it's a big sleep but usually just an hour. He wakes at about 7am and goes down at 6:30 and is usually asleep by 7pm.
DS gave up naps at 2y3m and I'm glad because his bedtime is really late if he does nap (like 11pm). Now he goes all day without sleeping and is in bed around 7pm, up at about 7am
DS is 2 and he naps from about 130-200 to 500-530. If he doesnt have his nap he is a terror!!!
