My 15 month old daughter usually gets 1 nap a day between 2 - 2.5 hrs. She takes lunch around 11:30 - 12 noon and then lays down after that. She has stuck to this schedule very well since she was around 12 months old. After she wakes up around 3pm she gets a snack and juice and then dinner around 6:30, after dinner she has her evening play time and then a bottle and bed after that.

My 14-month old son gets one nap at 12:30 PM (about 2-2.5 hours) and he gets lunch before that. He gets 8 oz milk when he wakes up, breakfast at 8:30 AM, another 6 oz or so of milk at 9:30, then lunch at 11:30, more milk just before his nap, a snack at 3 PM, milk again at 4:30 PM, dinner at around 6:30 PM, a bottle before he goes to bed (around 7:30) and that's it.

At day care, they transitioned from 2 naps to 1 nap between 12 and 15 months.  They usually fed breakfast at 8am, snack at 10am, lunch at 11:30am, nap from noon to 2 (if the kids didn't sleep, they had to lay quietly on their cots) - snack at 2:30.  I always fed her dinner around 6pm.  I tried to keep this schedule on the weekend too.  My daughter is now 25 months, and I still try to feed her lunch before her nap now that I'm home with her, but the time has slipped later into the afternoon.  When she was 15 months, she still napped in her swing at home.  Now, I try to get her down on the couch with me, and it's a struggle.

At 15 months my girl was still taking 2 naps of 45min-1.5 hrs each day and I found if I gave her snacks or lunch beforehand she slept longer and did not wake up in a grump! i do know some bubs who have 1 nap of 2-3 hours at this time from ~11.30am onward. That mum gives her boy his full lunch at 10.30 to help him get through it. Best of luck
