I'm just curious where everyone is with nap schedules. I'm thinking DD2 is trying to follow in big sister's footsteps and drop down to one nap super early. Currently we are doing 2 naps when we can (which is most days) but on days when we have morning activities outside of the house DD2 tends to only get one nap.
Our usual schedule is up bw 7-8, down for nap bw 9 and 10. Uusally takes 20 minutes of fussing to go to sleep.
Up 40 minuts after she fell asleep, so 11 at the latest. DD1 goes down at 12 and depending on how DD2 is acting, she'll go down anywhere between 12-1:30.
Again with the fussing and 30-40 minute nap.
On days when she only gets one nap, she goes to sleep quickly and sleeps for 1.5-2 hours.

DS usually only takes one long nap on daycare days - about 1.5-2 hours most days. Sometimes he catnaps 20 min in the car on the way in or home. On weekends he usually takes two shorter naps (about an hour each), so altogether I think he usually naps 2-2.5 hours per day but it's 1-3 naps depending on the day.

He still does best on two naps, but it's a toss-up on whether they are quality (which I define as 1-1.5 hours each) and I wish the schedule were less fluid. Sometimes daycare even puts him down for a third nap if he hasn't done well with sleep, though I don't usually at home.
On weekends where I can't get him down in the morning, his afternoon nap is A+. So I can see the appeal of dropping to one. But I think mine definitely still needs two.

We are still at two naps over here. First one is about two hours after she wakes up and she sleeps about two-two and a half hours. Then she takes her second nap about 2-3 hours after she wakes up from her first nap and sleeps another 2ish hours.
They usually take 2 naps for the sitter. Sometimes 3 if they're grouchy in the afternoon. Length varies.
For me, they'll usually go down well about an hour to hour and a half after they've gotten up for the day, so usually around 7:30-8 am. L will sleep for 1-1.5 hours. G will sleep 40 min max.
The next nap varies so widely on timing. Sometimes it's around 11. Sometimes around 1. I just put them down when they act tired because I don't have time to fight with them (them being mainly G) to adhere to the sleep schedule I want them to have. Same thing there, L will sleep 1-2 hours. G, 40 min.
Occasionally G will require a third half hour nap around 3 or 4. I wish he would just sleep longer stretches.
DS usually naps once in the morning around 10 or so for about 45 minutes. Then again in the afternoon maybe around 2ish for another 45 minutes to an hour. Sometimes he will take a catnap around 6 or so when he is eating.

40 min nap at daycare around 1200. If we're lucky she may do 2 naps. At home depends what we're doing but usually a cat nap around 9 or 10 which is often in the car/carrier and then if my H is home he'll lay with her and they'll get a 1.5-2 hr nap around 1 while DD1 is napping
DS will either go back down early and do two naps at about 2hrs each, or he will stay up until around 11 and do one long nap of about 3 hours. Bedtime is roughly 7:30 and he wakes up around 6:30. Sometimes he gets up at night, but it is currently rare and usually for a specific reason, like a bad diaper. Seems like DS has our sleep genes. DH and I are both people who can easily sleep forever once we are down. Knock on wood that DS sticks to being a sleepy baby for as long as possible...

We are in a bit of a run with this... she hates going down for naps (or any sleep) but once she's down will sleep for 2 hours. The result lately has been sleeping from 10:30ish to 12:30ish then refusing afternoon nap and being super cranky and tough to put down for bed.
