When should I switch my two-nap baby to a one-nap baby?

At what age do most parents switch their toddler’s schedule to one nap instead of two naps? My baby seems restless during much of her naptimes lately.

The Bump Expert

Typically, anytime between age one and two works for transitioning from two naps to one nap. Your baby’s schedule will usually start to shift on its own. At this point you just have to nudge it along by not putting her down for a nap until after lunch. (You may want to start lunch a little earlier for a little while and then gradually move it back to its normal time.) Also keep in mind that while she’ll only nap once now, chances are that nap will be much longer than its two shorter predecessors.
