  • First of all there is no “should” or “shouldn’t” in my opinion. Each of our kids are different.
    Between the ages of 1 and 2, most kids need about 11–14 hours of sleep a day, including one or two daytime naps. At around 18 months, or sometimes sooner, most toddlers condense their two naps into one afternoon nap. A toddler who fights the morning nap is probably ready for just an afternoon nap.

  • If she wants/needs two naps, go with it. My kids were down to just an afternoon nap by age one

  • My daughter is 17 months and is hard to make her sleep during the day and when she does I can’t let her sleep longer than 30 minutes otherwise she will go sleep after 10pm.

  • If she wants it, let her have it!

  • It looks quite normal to me. My daughter was doing exactly the same at that age. Then at 1 year and 7 months old she stopped napping altogether and slept 12 hours in a row during the night instead of the previous 10 hours.
