I have a son that will be 1 tomorrow. How much and how long should he be napping a day? Right now he naps twice a day between an hr and an hr and a half. Is this too much?

Well, it just depends on how he acts and how he sleeps at night. He needs at least one nap a day. He needs to sleep at least an hour to an hour and a half a day, which is what he is doing now. But I would not let him take more than one nap a day unless it is absolutley most definetely needed. My daughter is 2 and she takes one nap usually 30 mintues to an hour and then she goes to bed between 8 and 9 and then sleeps til between 6 and 8.

His napping schedule sounds just about right. All 4 of my kids were still taking two 2 hour naps a day at that age. Between 15 and 18 months they transitioned into one 3 hour nap a day. And they all slept 12 hours at night. My 3 year old still takes a 3 hour nap, although I'm pretty sure he doesn't sleep the whole time :)
