Dropping Naps

Ok, I know that most kids drop their only nap by age three. Yes, some even earlier – like age 2. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been happy about Z napping – unlike most or all of his classmates at school. He benefits from it and he needs it.

So, from this past few days, we’ve been noticing that he fights nap time. Sometimes it takes him a long time to settle but he will eventually just fall asleep from exhaustion. See, he’s not one of those kids that will just crash when he’s tired. He gets silly and wired, which is challenging.

So, at 3 yrs and 7 months, I think it’s fair to say that he has outgrown napping. But M and I think we will still insist but not force him to take one. At school, they have rest time and he does sleep. I hope he does when he needs it.

As for V, we have been toying with her nap schedule as well. It has been about 2 weeks since we tried switching her to one nap. At home she does sleep for about 1.5-2 hrs. In the car, she will sleep if Z is sleeping. Otherwise, she will stay up with him.

Needless to say, her nap time is now around 10:30 am. I just hope she will sleep for a minimum of 2 hrs. I guess it does make going out easier.
