I’m not totally convinced we’ve come to this stage in Abby’s life yet, but we’re definitely getting closer and closer to settling on one nap a day. In the past week or week and a half, she has shown little interest in her usual 9:00am – 11:00am nap. Instead, she naps from approximately 10:30am – 1:00pm. After that nap, she’s awake until she goes to bed around 8:30pm (skipping her usual 2:00pm – 3:00pm all together).
I was under the impression that this transition doesn’t typically happen until 15 – 18 months of age…???
I’m not complaining because after only taking one long nap yesterday, she slept from 8:30pm – 7:30am this morning (after several days/nights of not sleeping well because she had a cough/cold). 7x7xDaddy and I needed that sleep just as much as she did!
The funniest/most confusing part now is the fact that after sleeping 11 hours last night, she just went down for her 9:00am nap without any hesitation. And she was looking forward to it (grabbing her blanky, rubbing her eyes, etc). I can’t help but scratch my head.
So here’s my question: is there a transition time between 2 naps and 1 nap where kids take 2 nap some days and 1 nap other days and eventually settle on 1 nap??? When did your kids start taking only 1 nap?
