My DD1 dropped nap at 3.3, DD2 dropped it at 2.2. She is now 2.6 and still sometimes has a few minutes' sleep in the car, but on the whole goes without a nap.
I would agree though that after a few days she is extremely tired by late afternoon, which will of course result in tantrums. But getting her to bed at night is much quicker (and earlier) without nap. I am hoping she will get used to it at some stage! Isn't 2 fun ?
my 5.5 year old DS naps on the days he is not in kindergarten which are wed, sat, and sun anywhere from 2.5 -4 hours from 12.30pm. If he misses a nap for more than 2 days running his behaviour goes downhill. His 3yo brother naps everyday stlll. 3 days he is in childcare and only gets 45min/1hr and seems to spend the rest of the week trying to catch up. Basically our arvos are shot and we don't plan anything for earlier then 3.30pm. They both have no problem going to bed at 7.30pm and sleep through till 6 or 7am. I need them to be up by 7 if I am going to get to DS1's school on time. I just hope that DD 3mo gets into he same routine shortly but doesn't hold onto it for quite so long as her brothers. I also don't know how DS1 will cope next year with 5 days straight without a nap. And no - I don't know anyone else whos children love their naps as mich as my boys. I don't complain as it gives DH and I a chance to .... while we both still have the energy
