As long as YOU think he's ready for just one nap, then i think it's a good idea. It depends on the child. Some days you might notice he'll need more than one nap...other days, he might not.

Our son decided to only have one nap a day from 9 months - if it had been my choice I would have stayed with 2 but he would not have a morning one any more. He is still having one nap though and is nearly three. Let your baby dictate how much rest he needs.

Every baby is different and develop at different rates. As long as your baby seems rested, one nap is fine. Hopefully it is a long nap so you can get something done! :)

My kids both love to sleep and my oldest took 2 naps until she was almost 2-that being said, not all kids need as much sleep. If he is getting lots of sleep at night then I don't see why you couldn't try cutting back to 1 nap. If he turns into a big grumpy baby just go back to 2 naps, no harm done! Good luck!
