How long before a nap

How long can your LO stay up for.
My DD is up still for about 2 hrs before she wants to nap. Then sleeps 30-45 min about 4 times a day. It doesn't matter if she wakes up for the day at 6 or 7:45am she will need a nap 2 hrs almost to the min after.

    Up at 7:30, two hr nap at 9:30
    Up at 11:30, two hour nap at 1:30
    Up at 3:30, sleeping at 7:30
    Once in a while she will nap from5:30-6:30 and I'll put her to bed at 8-8:30 if she does.
    She has sttn the last 4 nights so hoping this is it!

    Yeah mine needs one about 1.5 hours after waking up and then a nap every 2 hours after that, she only naps for 30 minutes occasionally 40. She does her longest stretch usually around 3 hours before she goes down for the night.

    First nap of the day is usually 1-1.5 hours after waking, then it's every 2 hours. Closer to the evening she goes 3-4 hours sometimes before bed.

    About 1 1/2 to 2 hours between naps. If longer, he is a bear to get down, because he's so overtired.

    Who are all these babies who take 2 hour naps??

    A needs a nap roughly every 2.5-3 hours. Naps are typically 45 min, sometimes 1.5 hours if we're really lucky. She's happy, so I don't try to push for more.

    Night time is typically 8:30-5, eat, then another 2 hours

    DD needs a nap every 1.5-2 hours. Naps are only 30 minutes. If we're lucky, we may get 45 minutes and if we can an hour, it's a special treat. 30 minutes seems to be okay for her, she wakes happy and no matter what I do she won't go back to sleep, so I don't bother trying.

    DS has a very lose nap schedule but I roll with it because he STTN 90% of the time regardless of naps. General he takes 2 naps, the first 2-3 hours after waking for about 1 1/2-2 hours, the second 3-4 hours later fir about 45min. He goes 3-5hours between the 2nd nap and bed time. Very rarely he takes a late nap snuggled with me around 5 for 30 mins.

    Up sometime after 7am. 1st nap around 10am and 1.5-2 hours. This one used to be 30 minutes until last week. After she gets up, we have lunch. Then she'll stay up and want another nap between 3pm and 4pm and this one will also be 1.5-2 hours. Yesterday it started at 3:45pm and today at just before 3pm. She sometimes takes another one before bedtime. Bedtime is 8pm.

    Until last week, she was more the "up for 2 hours and then I need a 30 minute nap" type.

    Edit: Of course, now that I wrote this, she woke up 15 minutes into her 2nd nap.

    LO is up for about an hour or so before her first morning nap, which lasts 1-2hrs. The rest of the day it's 30-45min naps every 2-3hrs.

    On weekends dd is up around 6am, first nap 5 hours later at 11am for about a half hour and the next nap 3.5 hours later at 3pm, for about 1 - 1.5 hours . Bed at 7pm. She doesn't nap well at home. She naps a lot more at daycare but is a bit more random with what time she goes down. Anywhere between 9am and 11am. Sometimes she'll snooze from 11:30am - 2pm and that's it for the day.

    LO wants to nap 1 to 2 hours after she wakes up. For the rest of the day she goes about 2-2.5 hours then needs a nap. She's a short napper (30-45 mins) unless I'm holding her (can be up to 2 hours).
