    Default When did your child stop day naps?

    My son is 20mo and didn't have a nap yesterday, and the few days before was going for a nap at 3-4pm. Little worried as I have a bub on the way

    At 17-18mo DS dropped all day naps, (and dropped the 2nd day nap at about 14mo). Seeing as he 'napped' from 8pm-11pm and was up again till 1 or 2am, I am grateful ~ he now goes to bed at 8:30-9ish, and rarely has a nap ~ maybe one a week. He does, though, have an hour of quiet recharge; sitting with some milk and reading with me quietly for an hour.

    DD1 - stopped having them everyday at 3, completely stopped at 3.5!

    DS - 26 months. He's 33 months at moment and will occasionally fall asleep in car but there's no way he would go to sleep in his bed during day. He still sleeps at daycare (2 days a week) which I don't mind as he catches up on sleep. However, this can make bedtime a nightmare.

    Mine both ditched naps at 2. But my almost 4yr old decided to start napping again after deciding to stop sleeping at night

    DD is 4.5yrs and still sleeps on the days shes not at kindy for about 2 hours. Shes on school holidays atm and has slept every day of them. DS is 2.5yrs and naps everyday for about 3 hours. If you want to keep the day sleep, make sure you get them out of the house and wear them out.

    I agree. Dd1 aged 32mths naps 1.5-2.5hrs during the day with 10.5-11.5hrs overnight. I try to tire her out as well.

    My DD is 23 months and probably could go without a nap if she had too. But I still make sure I put her down every afternoon as I'm also expecting another baby soon (due end July) so I'm really hoping to keep the naps going a bit longer haha

    She will sleep an hour or 2, there have been a couple of days here and there that I suspected she stayed up in bed playing. I guess that's ok for her to just have some 'quiet time' though

    DS is 3.5 and has just stopped having them, he's been on and off with them for 3/4 months now. He still gets cranky though at the time he used to have them an maybe still would have one now and then but then he wouldn't be in bed until 9pm! Our problem is that he's up by 6am and we can't seem to get him out of the habit.
