Transitioning From 3 Naps To 2

Between approximately 8-10 months, your baby will drop the third nap of the day, which may have become a catnap anyway.

Two naps will become the norm and usually these equate to around 3 hours total with a baby doing best at no more than 3 hours awake between sleeps.

Once settled into a two nap schedule, these often sit nicely around 9/9.30 am and 1/1.30 p.m lasting approximately 90 minutes each, although you may find one is longer than the other. It might bring about a bit more freedom to the structure of your day and give you more time for play and activities with your baby.

So how can you navigate this transition smoothly? What should you watch for and how do you know your baby is ready?
