    Default When did your toddler drop the day nap?

    DS was 3 in January. He is still having a day nap around 1-3pm.

    When did other people's toddlers drop the day nap?

    DD is 3.5 and I stopped trying to get her to have a day nap about 2 months ago. She occasionally has a sleep at daycare but usually just has a "rest".

    I thought I'd hate it when she dropped the nap but it's much better. DS is 7.5mo and naps 2-3 times a day so it's easier just worrying about one set of nap times!

    DD dropped hers around her 2nd birthday. Though she still really needed one for at least 6 months after that!

    DS was 2 in Nov and no sign of dropping his yet!

    DD1 was 3 when she stopped napping every day but she still needed one every other day.

    DS dropped his at 26 months but he definitely still needed it. It was a nightmare for over 6 months.

    DD2 is 27 months and still naps for 2 hours. I love it when she naps but I also can't wait for her to not need one everyday as our activities revolve around her naps. She doesn't sleep as long in the car or pram so I like to be home for her nap.

    DD is nearly 4 & napped everyday until recently. Now it's every 2nd day. Every day we are home though we have a rest time where she may read but has to stay in bed for at least 30mins. Usually she falls asleep...

    About 2 but maybe once or twice a week he would crash out in the car. Bed times were a nightmare so we had to drop them

    Ds1 is 3 years 4 months and still naps 75% of the time. We should cap it at 45 minutes max otherwise he stuffs around not going to bed until 8-8:30. But it is sooo tempting to just have a big break during the middle of the day. Ds1 is a turkey when he doesn't nap but I've heard that occurs for an initial transition period then gets better.

    I don't think we will drop it for a while yet - his overall behavior when he gets tired just makes me think he still needs to nap. So later bed times is a trade off we just have to accept.

    About 3 years, 1 months since planned naps. Occasionally she falls asleep in front of the TV (for about 2 months after dropping it, is put frozen on at nap time and she fall asleep) or in the car. . I also had a newborn but stopped pushing the issue as it was a fight to her to sleep in her bedroom.

    DD was almost 4 before she dropped hers. She would still occasionally have an hours nap after she completely dropped them too.
