DS stopped just before turning 3. I thought he'd dropped them about 6 months earlier than that, but it seemed to be a phase and we re-introduced them. He could probably still do with one, and sometimes does at kinder or if we're out in the car, maybe 2-3 times a week. He's now 3 and 2 months.

When they dropped their nap did they sleep any longer at night?

23 months but it was a battle from about 20 months onwards. He will still fall asleep on decent car trips but then be up till 10pm. Without a nap he's asleep by 7.30 at the latest and sleeps in till 8ish
I miss him having a nap but early bedtime makes up for it

He used to sleep 11-12hrs overnight at 18mo, with a 2-3hr day nap, but now he's dropped the nap, he sleeps 13-14hrs overnight. Will wake up once or twice for a sippy of milk, but is going without more and more, and demanding it first thing in the morning. Teething disrupts his sleeping a lot, though, and he gets over-excited before bed, wants to read for hours, and just can't get to sleep when he goes down. He tries hard though, and as soon as I give in or realise it's teething related and give him a dose of Panadol, he's usually out pretty quickly. So yes, at his age (now 22mo) , dropping the nap added 2hrs onto his night sleep but he sleeps the same amount approx overall. He often is pretty exhausted at the end of the day, and has a little quiet time reading at the same time as he used to have a nap.
The world is just waaaaay too exciting a place for him right now, and it takes a 2km walk in the day and another 20min ramble before his bath at night to tire him out ~ without these and a general high level of physical activity, I suspect he'd never sleep ever again!

DD is 3 in July and still has at least 2 hours after lunch. If we haven't done anything I don't make her. Just put her to bed earlier. But she definitely still needs a nap. I'm hoping ds follows her lead. Lol. He's 13 months but he will sleep for at least 3 hours during the day. He dropped to one sleep at about 10 months.

DS1 still has them. He is 3 and a half. He can go without but if he does it too much his behaviour declines so we are keeping the nap.
