    Default How long does your 2-3yo nap for?

    I'm feeling awful right now.....Dd, 27 months, still goes down easy but the past few days has been waking up from her nap (usually around 2 hours) earlier and earlier.
    Today she woke after just 40 minutes and I was tired from work and lost my patience and told her to go back to sleep and ignored her for 5 minutes whilst she cried and screamed and went back to sleep.
    Just wondering if she really did only need 40 minutes or she's testing me. (11.5 hours roughly at night)

    So how long does your toddler nap for?

    Dd turned 3 last month & still naps 1.5hrs everyday. I'm sure she'd go longer if I didn't wake her. She sleeps overnight 8ish - 7/7.30.

    Not looking forward to her dropping it, if I can wing ds napping at the same time I can do things in peace and quickly:-)

    We dropped it at 2. She was refusing to go to sleep and was a nightmare to get to sleep at night.

    DD dropped her nap around her 2nd birthday.

    DS is almost 2.5 and naps 1.5-2hrs a day. He sleeps about 10.5-11hrs overnight

    Default How long does your 2-3yo nap for?

    My two older kids both dropped their day sleeps at 2 years old.
    My 3rd had a 2-3 hour nap every day until he was about 2.5 and then it transitioned to every other day (and I woke him after 2 hours) until a couple of months ago and now at 3.5 it's once, occasionally twice a week for 1.5 hours maximum.

    DD 2.5 usually sleeps for an hour and a half to two hours every day. On the odd occasion she's refused and been fine till bed time.

    I kept the day naps going as long as possible. Ds1 napped for 1.5 to 2hrs until he was 4. Ds2 is 4 and he will still happily nap when he gets home from kindy if he is tired. Day naps never interfered with their night sleeping. Both have slept 11hrs at night for years, even my 7.5mth old does. 😉 Obviously blessed with great sleepers.

    I have a 3 year old and an almost 2 year old.

    They both go down for a nap at around 11-11:30am and will sleep anywhere from 1-3 hours. My 3yo is starting to wake earlier from his naps so I think it won't be long before he stops them altogether. 2yo generally does at least 2 hours, 3 if we have had a big morning.

    They both sleep a good 12-13 hours overnight too. Very active little boys!
