When Do Babies Go From Three Naps to Two?

Although each child is different, babies tend to cut back from three to two naps a day between 6 and 9 months of age, according to California-based pediatrician Jeffrey Lazarus. The transition may begin with a shorter nap of about 15 minutes, until the third nap disappears altogether.

“When your child is too tired, he will let you know,” Lazarus says. “When you put him down for a nap and he no longer falls asleep, that is another clue that the third nap is no longer needed.”
