    DD is 20mths, has and NEEDS her 3 hr nap after lunch. I love it as i spend half doing housework/cooking and the other half i have a nap myself being 28 weeks pregnant)


    I dread the day she no longer NEEDS to day nap.

    DD1 reduced to 1-2 naps a week at around 2.5 years.
    DD2 still has one nap a week at 5 years.
    DS stopped wanting to nap every day at 18 months and at nearly 3 will have 1 nap a week (the day his sister does) and then falls asleep in the car etc. a couple of other times a week. He probably still needs 2-3 naps a week but he resists them so much he'll fight them for an hour or an hour and a half and then fall asleep and I'll have to wake him up after 30 minutes to get DD1 from school so it's just not worth it. I imagine he'll resist them a bit less next year though cause he'll go to pre-school three days a week. That's got to wear him out for a while!

    DS dropped his at around 2 and 3 months, a few months before his sister was born. The upside is quick to go to sleep and 6:30pm - 6am sleeps most nights.

    DD was about 3 when she was still having them every day. At 4, she might have one a few times a week. At 5, she would never nap.

    Thanks everyone. There's quite a range here. Well my son seemed to manage fine with no nap until bedtime! He cried and cried as he was so tired. I had to sit in the glider chair with him and he fell asleep straight away in my arms, poor thing. I will have to persist with the day nap. I also think its time to move him to a toddler bed.

    My DS went through a weird phase at about 28 months where he wasnt going down in the day, and i thought he was over naps. But a friend told me her DD did the same thing nd then went back to napping like a champion, and that's just what DS has done. After about a month of missing every other nap he's gone back to 2-3 hour naps a day and 11-12 hours overnight.

    DD was just under 2 1/2 when she went from sleeping for 2 1/2 hours to nothing in one day..... Wow, was that a shock to the system....
