Done with Naptime

By this age, most toddlers are only napping once a day—usually during the afternoon. The age at which you can drop the afternoon nap varies.

Some toddlers are done with it by age 2; others continue to need a nap right up through kindergarten. Typically, children stop napping between ages 3 and 4.

Among the signs that your child is ready to stop napping are taking a long time to fall asleep, not seeming tired at naptime and/or bedtime, and showing no adverse signs when a nap is skipped.
