My daugther turned 2 years in Feb '09, but I starting to think she does not want to sleep in the afternoon anymore. 80 % of the time she'll got to sleep within 30 min, but some days it can take almost 2 hours . . . or not at all.

Thanks guys . . . it just shows, children are so different. I think I must just relax about this. I want her to sleep (I need the ME-time), but somedays I can try all the trix in the book . . . nothing will get her to sleep. Maybe I should just relax and let her be on those days, because she is not cranky at all and goes to bed more or less at the same time.

My son stopped taking a nap in the afternoon as soon as he hit 2 years. There was no way after that he was going to go to sleep.

My first child stopped structured naps at about 2ish. She did need the odd nap of 20mins some days at about 3.30, so she wasn't too grumpy at bed time.

I think kids should never stop taking a nap! lol for the parents' sake at least. My son is 20 months old and still takes 1 nap a day, ranging from 1 -3 hours usually in the late afternoon.

My daughters just turned 4 and they still take a 2 hour nap every afternoon, but I think everychild is different because 2 of my friends kids who are 4 do not take naps anymore and another friends only takes a 30 min nap in the afternoon!!!

My daughter went from taking 2-3 hour naps every afternoon to no nap at all when she turned three and a half. Just in time for her baby sister to arrive- lucky me!
