Several of my mom friends warned me that some children give up their naps entirely. I have been praying that my son won’t become one of those kids! I have watched him go from napping 3-4 hours a day (sometimes one very long nap or two throughout the day) to 90 minutes if I am lucky. How am I supposed to get things done in 90 minutes?
Since he has cut back his nap time so much, I have started putting him back in his crib during the early evening hours for a little quiet time. He is very cooperative which allows me to prepare dinner and unwind a bit before my husband gets home from work.
At what age did your children stop taking naps? I am so depressed knowing that I may have no free time in my future.
