The response Afternoon Nap for children up to what age The answers of science and experts are different and mostly all of them valid. But the point is not to decide at the table that the nap is right or not, valid or not, and if there is an age when you should stop. The point is as our son is better And even as we’re better parents.
As Prof. Ferrari, Pediatric Hospital of Turin, for example, in his book Children grow despite adults, many little things that our children do, they are habits, right or wrong, that parents give them, for personal needs, for a quiet life or because they believe in a right to do so, instead of another with their children.

Children accustomed to the afternoon nap
To 3 years, children begin to attend kindergarten and, in many cases, have already attended the nest. The accustomed nurseries often the children to nap group afternoon. Conversely, if the children were in the house with us and you are used to sleeping in the afternoon, they have already gained a pace that will bring with them in kindergarten and that it will be good to maintain or, conversely, to change slowly and only if it is necessary to do so .
Children are not accustomed to the afternoon nap
Then there are children who do not have a habit to rest and do a little ‘as it happens. This is normal up to 3 years, when the sleep-wake rhythm is still structuring. Again, it would be good that the child still follow its natural rhythm without force, unless otherwise indicated the family, educational facilities (school camps etc.) and the pediatrician.
