Signs that your baby is ready to transition to one nap

As a toddler gets closer to dropping a nap, it’s common to see the following signs:

* Resisting naps, especially the second one

* Skipping naps entirely

* Taking shorter-than-usual naps

* Suddenly waking early and/or split nights (where a child can’t sleep for long periods during the middle of the night)

* If your child is regularly getting less than 10 hours of sleep per night on a two-nap schedule, transitioning to one nap may help lengthen night sleep.
