We are on a regular nap schedule twice a day. And I am starting to see the morning nap disappear. Seems early to me. Anyone else seeing changes in nap schedules?

My son is 9.5 months. I've noticed in the last week that it takes about half an hour before he falls asleep for his morning nap. He doesn't cry, he plays around in his crib and finaly falls asleep. Once out he'll stay out for anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours. And he still does the afternoon naps which also vary between 45 minutes and 2 hours. He usually falls asleep at night around 8pm and sleeps until 6-7am.

My son was 10 months on the 1st. and still takes usually three naps... Morning, after noon and again around 5-6 and usuall a hour or two at each... And he still sleeps well at night... Usually around 8:30 - 9:00 and sleeps until 7 or 8am..

My baby is starting to not want an afternoon nap. I think it is a little early but she doesn't seem too overtired so I am going to go with the flow on this one and let her decide what she needs. I think some days she needs it and others not so much.

Yes, my daughter turned 10 months on the 6th, and she has been taking one, 3-hour nap, a day since she was about 8 months old. She just started doing it on her own one day.

My 9 month old takes probably 2 naps a day. Matters how busy he is. And what time he goes to bed. He is usually up 2 to 3 hours in the morning then sleeps for about an hour or two, then he plays for a few hours and then naps again. Stays awake probably from 4ish to about 11 at night. Active little thing.

I've found that my LO's morning nap is moving closer and closer to her afternoon nap. Right now she naps between 8:30-9 am and 12-2 pm.

She can sometimes skip her morning nap, but if she does then she HAS to take two in the afternoon otherwise she is a tiny terror.

My son was having two naps a day as well but one day we were busy out and about and he went down for a nap later than usual and slept for about 2.5 hours instead of the usual two 45 min naps so I've kept this up. He's up in the morning around 7-8 then back down after 12 for a long nap. He seems much happier and it gives me more of a block of time to do stuff. I don't think anything is too early for kids, I follow Zac's lead for most things and do things at my own pace instead of what a book tells me too!! This generally means I do things earlier than most and I get critizied by some people but if it works for my family it's was I do!!

I find my little guy goes through waves where he won't nap either morning or afternoon and then he will go back on schedule for weeks on end. We just finished a "I don't want my afternoon nap" time.

Yes unfortunately lol. My daughter was 9 months and 2 weeks when I noticed she started fighting her morning nap..I took it away and now her nap is from 12:30pm or 1pm until 3pm each day.

My 9month old takes 2 naps a day. But the past week or two I have seen a change in her napping. She has only been taking one nap and its like a hour to two hours long.... I also thought it was early for her only to have one nap a day but everyone I have talked to says it is perfectly normal at this age for her napping to change.
