Will Nadia eventually switch to one nap on her own? Or do I have to do it for her? She still does a morning nap & afternoon, but most kids usually go to one nap a day after age one, right? I feel like every time I go out with friends & their kids (similar ages) our schedule is always off.

i had to switch mady myself from 2 naps to 1 nap at around 12 months or so...i would say she was around 13-14 months?
naptime switched from early morning AND afternoon to just 1 afternoon nap (usually she starts her naps now around 12:30-1 and wakes up anywhere from 2-4pm). today she napped from 1-4pm but remember we have an 8pm bedtime too.
another thing, i'm lenient if we're out and about on wknds, sometimes i try to be home around her naptime so she can still nap if not an earlier bedtime (like 6-6:30pm) works just as well. i try my best to not let her schedule interfere with our wknd time since its the only time the 3 of us are actually together
Liam still NEEDED his morning nap until about 17 months. After that he started skipping it without a problem (he'd be drowsy and then get interested in something and we'd miss the nap) and we shifted to one early afternoon nap pretty quickly.
I let my boys transition when they were ready. THey both still needed two naps until they were abotu 18 months old and then dropped one and took 3 hour naps.
Chelsea went down to one nap a day when she moved from the nursery to the one-year old room at her school (11months). She takes a nap shortly after lunch and we do the same at home. She wakes up at 7am every morning and once in a while, if we see she is super cranky - we'll put her down for a mid-morning nap, say 10am or so.
I too try to work around her nap schedule on the weekends (or we all pay for it) unless she is not cranky. If I see she can make it through the day without a nap, she'll just have an earlier bedtime.
Zachary still needs two naps. He takes a long nap in the morning - about 2 to 2.5 hours, and then a 1 hr nap in the afternoon. He usually wakes up at around 8am and goes to sleep around 8:30 or 9pm.
I'm sure if he went to sleep at 7pm he would be at 1 nap but I really need those 3 hours during the day to do work, so I'm happy with him napping a lot during the day.

Quinn started transitioning to 1 nap a day between 10 months and a year. Since then, he's napped after lunch from 12 - 2or3pm every day. That's with a wake-up by 7am and bedtime at 7:30pm.
Graciela still does two naps now at 13 months old. Wakes at 6:30, naps around 9:30 or 10 for 2 hours, naps again around 3-4pm for an hour or hour and a half, and bedtime at 7 or 7:30pm. They still let her follow that schedule at daycare (although she takes longer naps at home than at school).
She needs a lot more sleep than Cedric ever did. He sleeps from 9:30pm to 6:30am and has no naps now at almost 3 y/o, but at 15 months he was doing a 2 hour nap after lunch and sleeping from 8:30 to 5:30am. They transitioned him at daycare.
