Re: at what age do toddlers stop needing naps?
I agree with JillR. Very good advice. Our older boy was nearly 4 when he gave up naps, but our younger boy is not yet 3 1/2 and has pretty much stopped napping. He'll still take a catnap of 20 minutes most afternoons, but it's not planned. Usually he conks out on the couch watching TV or reading a book after he gets home from pre-school and has lunch. We found that giving him long naps made it harder for him to go to bed at night. We still haven't perfected his bedtime routine, so I can't say giving up the nap has made a big difference yet with that, however.
