How many naps your toddler needs, for how long and when to stop will all very much depend on your toddler and how much they sleep at night.
The NHS recommends that at two years old, your toddler should have 11.5 hours sleep at night and one and a half hours of sleep in the day. The daytime napping recommendation reduces to 45 minutes when your toddler is three years old and by the age of four, it's recommended that they should no longer need daytime naps.
As your toddler gets older, daytime naps are likely to get trickier as they become more and more interested in what's going on around them. Your toddler may give you all the signs that they're ready for a sleep, but when it comes to taking them to their bed or cot, it all changes.
Here are our tips to help you win the naptime battle...
If your toddler takes a long time to get to sleep or doesn't really seem tired at nap time, they may be ready to start skipping their daytime naps. Alternatively, if they seem too active at bedtime it might be time to skip any sleep during the day completely or slowly phase them out of your routine.
All little ones are unique, so remember that it all very much depends on your toddler. Some will stop napping very happily on the first day, others will need the change to happen more gradually.
It can help to have a rest time instead of an actual nap, some down time to play with toys or read a book, and while you're transitioning away from daytime naps, your little one might need to go to bed a little earlier - this is quite normal and will give you more time to chill our on an evening.
