Could you share with me when your LO went from needing two naps to needing one?  I have a 6-month old who used to nap for two hours from 8-10 and then again from 12-2pm, with a short 4pm nap that he's since dropped... Now his morning nap is at the most 45 minutes, leading me to think that he'll be dropping it soon.  It seems a little early, but I also know two-year olds who don't nap at all, so I guess it depends on the baby?  For the record, my LO is super big, 98 percentile, sleeps through the night (7pm to 6am), and is eating solids full-on.  I wonder if that makes a difference?

Sounds like he is getting ready to drop the nap.  My daughter dropped her morning nap around 8 months, and was nap free by 18 months.  She just was done.

My DD dropped the 3rd evening nap around 5 months, and went to one nap around 7 months. Now at almost 10 months, there are occaisional days when she requires a second catnap, but usually it's just one midday nap.
