    Every child is different! My son stopped napping entirely before he turned 2 :'( :'( I sure do wish he had followed this schedule! He does still have some quiet time each day, as does my 3 year old daughter who has mostly dropped them as well.

      Great outline for nap time. Every child will be different so it will vary from child to child.

        Yea Good rough estimate, most kids like to cat nap for 20 minutes instead.
