: When did your children stop napping twice daily? My 11 month old keeps putting up a fight for his AM nap now. He ends up cranky until his afternoon nap. Should I force the issue?
My son is now 1 year and stopped napping twice a day at about 10 or 11 months. The worst part is that he NEEDS his am nap, he'll just fall alseep on his own if I don't put him down so there's no negotiating there. This really sucks as he won't go down for an afternoon nap if he's gone in the morning. Lately he's been going later and later though in the morning and now it's about lunch time so I keep him up for a cranky lunch and than put him down anf he sleeps until about 2:30pm. It's much better as he's not SO cranky for the later part of the afternoon, but than he's not going to sleep as easily now at bed time either. Can't win eh?
