Anyone else merging naps?

Dd #2 used to nap 10-11:30 then again 2-3:30ish...when she did this, she woke up once at night, somewhere between 12 & 1, for a feeding. For the past week or two, she has been sttn (8 to 8) and isn't ready for nap until 11ish and naps until 1:30 re 2. (Knock on wood) I know that every child is different, but I don't remember my older daughter merging them until she was 14 or 15 months old...dd 2 isn't even 11 months old. I am by no means complaining :-) I'm just wondering if any other little ones the same age are down to one nap already?

Re: Anyone else merging naps?

  • I'm not sure if she's merging or what she's doing but all this week at dc and yesterday and today she hasn't been napping much. Yesterday she did like 15 minutes in the morning and 30 in the afternoon and today she did 30 in the morning and hasn't taken one in the afternoon (we tried an hour a go and she just screamed). She sleeps perfectly fine at night. For the most part she's a happy maybe she's just going to be like me and not nap as a child.
  • Sometimes he'll sleep 8:30-8:30 at night, and on those days he'll have one 2 hour nap

    Other days he'll sleep 8:30-6:30, and on those days he'll have two 2 hour naps

    This except that he gets up multiple times to nurse.
  • My LO had been doing one 2-3 hour nap around 10 or 11 and then maybe 30 min late afternoon for about three weeks now.

    LO sleeps 8-6:30. If she's up for the day at 6:30 she takes two 2 hour naps. If she goes back to sleep at 6:30 (which doesn't happen often) she will take one 2-3 hr nap in the early afternoon. DD1 went to one nap around 10-11 months.

  • It's been hit or miss. She used to take a 1.5-2 hour nap around 9-10 then later another nap about the same amount of time later in the afternoon around 2-3. As of late she doesn't seem to get tired till closer to 12-1 and sleeps 2 ish hours. Some days I can get her to take a second nap but she's been screaming and fighting it and sometimes won't go down.

    Also, I'm trying to cut the bottle at at least one nap. So that may play into her changes I don't know.

  • DD started merging naps last week. Every other day she will take one nap but not at a consistent time. She has been staying up later which I think has made a difference as well.

  • Jack sleeps 7-7 and will take a 2 hr nap on average between 9 and 10. He used to take an afternoon nap around 2 or 3 for about an hr. If he takes an afternoon nap at all now they are typically 45 min.

  • Erin sleeps from 8-8:30 until 7:00ish. Without wake ups. She was napping in the morning around 9 and again around 2.

    She just started a pmo 2 days a week from 9 to noon and has fallen asleep before we get out of the parking lot! She slept for 2.5 - 3 hours both days. On the other days she falls asleep coming home from drop off for her brother and sleeps 30-45 mins in the morning and then a couple hours in the afternoon.

    I think she needs the 2nd nap but I am reluctant to let her fall asleep at 5 pm and get all comfy in her bed. If she falls asleep while I am cooking dinner I just let her sleep where she is, high chair, exosauser.
