When My Kids Dropped The Nap

`` (

Hello everyone, answering another question today from a viewer “when did my kids drop the nap?”  Frankly, I’m obsessed with the issue of sleep for kids.  Making sure my kids slept A LOT has been a huge priority for me from day one because I saw how much better they did when they were rested and like their mom and dad, they all are big sleepers!  I also relied on my kids being asleep early and napping for good stints during the day so I could get a break and get a few things done!

Toddler Nap Time

I have whole series of vlogs on napping that talk about the transition from 3-2 naps, from 2-1 naps, and then how to transition down to no naps.  When I filmed this last vlog, my daughter Annaliese was in the process of dropping her nap so I was experimenting with getting her through this.

I actually have some more insights to share now because Annaliese ended up napping 1-2 days a week up until the age of 4 ½, the longest of any of my kids.  Now she’s almost five and really doesn’t love taking naps, but on a day when she’s really tired, I still give her a short nap and she then seems better the next day.  When she doesn’t nap and is tired, I put her down very early by 7 p.p.  Told you I was obsessed with my kids and sleep!

In today’s vlog, I talk in more detail about the 4 of my children who have gone through this and when and how they went about dropping the nap because each case was slightly different.
