when do toddlers drop their afternoon nap?

Dd is nearly 3 and naps for about an hour in the afternoon when I put her down (never sleeps of her own accord at any time of day or night...). I thought this was normal but just met a random mum in the library who said that her 2 1/2 year old and his friends of a similar age have already dropped theirs. This could make bed time easier as she takes ages to sleep but at the same time when she doesn't nap she is... awkward and cross for much of the afternoon and evening. What are others experiences?

Both my kids had dropped their nap by this age, but I have a friend with a 4yo who still naps during the day. They are all different so you just have to see what your child is like really.

Rather than dropping it altogether, you can start napping every other day, every 3 days...drop it until it's gone.
