When did your toddler's afternoon nap start getting shorter?

Our toddler was napping about 1.5 hours each day. He's now almost 22 months and it's an hour if we're lucky. Wondering if this is a regression or if it's just a natural decrease that occurs at this age.

    Our 26 month old will nap 1-2 hours at school and up to 3 hours at home. Haven't seen any regression

    Might be a phase ours did the same. He’s 2.2 now and sleeps at least 2 hours in the afternoon. Can you push the nap back? He might not be as tired and may need a later nap? That’s what worked for us.

    My daughter is 20 months and only naps for 1 hour a day. Unless in the car. And sometimes if I get lucky she’ll sleep 1 1/2. She started doing this after I stopped breastfeeding so about 13 months

    My kiddo went the opposite direction, thank god. From 1.5 to 3 hour naps. 🎊🙌🏻

    If mine gets to sleep as long as she wants over night sometimes she doesn't nap. If she has to get up then she could nap for like 3 hours! She is 18 months

    if he sleeps all night dont worry! hes growing! it wont always be that way since their nody does catch up on sleep but itll probably be like that for now on
