How Many Naps Does Your Child Take?

Nap time is mommy's playtime. Whether mommy is getting rest or catching up on phone calls, baby's snooze fest gives both mom and child a chance to unwind and re-energize. Unfortunately, these restful moments don't last forever as children slowly drop their naps as they age. Infants can pack in three or four rests while toddlers often hold out for one big sleep. Some tots end up dropping them way before their peers — leaving mama needing her own siesta more than ever. How many naps does your child take?

My 18 month old girl still takes a good two to three hour nap every day. She stopped taking multiple naps probably around 14/15 months! I love nap-time. I am also not looking forward to the day when she stops napping!

My two year old has just gone a whole week without a nap, much to my dismay.

Kairi stopped taking multiple naps around 7 months. It's pretty early and I was afraid she would follow in my footsteps and stop all together around a year, but ever since 7 months she has taken a 1-3 hour nap once a day.

Most days its 3 naps but sometimes I can sneak a solid 4th nap in if errands and a car ride are involved.

My son switched from 2 naps to 1 at about 17 months. He's still taking a 2, sometimes 3, hour nap a day and I'm not looking forward to the day that goes away!
