When did your baby drop down to 1 nap a day?

My 10mo old seems to be fighting her morning nap which is usually at 9:30/10. If I go any later she wont have time for her second nap to fit in and still be tired for bedtime at 7:30/8pm. Is it too soon to try one nap?

    Not necessarily. Every child is different. I like to follow their lead, within reason. Plus, what I have seen as a preschool teacher, toddler curriculum has toddlers on a schedule where they are taking one scheduled nap during the school day, and it is a long nap, about 2-3 hours. If your daughter is doing this before 12 months that is not really a bad thing. As she is going into toddler years this is actually normal for her to want to stay up longer. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your input Liz! That makes me feel better about moving into one nap before shes a year old. She can nap 2-2.5 hours for her first nap sometimes and then 30min-1hr for her 2nd. Or vica versa.
