He is 18 months and doesn't nap anymore and is fine all day long. He doesn't get crappy or anything but i am pregnant and i want a nap and that is my time to clean but he doesn't ever go to sleep until bed time. He sleeps about 10 hours at night but nothing during the day. I really need him to get his naps back. The doctors all say that he should be taking at least one nap a day but how??? He doesn't!!!! Any suggestion???

Thank you for your comments. Today I layed him down and he kinda just played in his room was really good. Dont know if it will work everyday but today was good thanks again.

But you can still force a 45 minute "rest time". I do that with my 2 year old. He doesn't have to sleep, but he has to be in his crib with some of his stuffed toys. It does him a little good even if he doesn't fall asleep.

I hate to tell you this.......but it sounds like he's given up his naps. And you can't really force him.
