Nap Transitions

Because nap lengths vary so widely, especially in those early months, please do not worry about the number of naps with babies in the birth to 12-week range. To learn more about this and how to set your days up for success, check out the newborn class, Will I Ever Sleep Again?

Here are the typical age ranges for nap transitions to happen:

Age Nap Transition
4-5 months 4 naps to 3 naps
7-8 months 3 naps to 2 naps
13-17 months 2 naps to 1 nap
