    Also, a poll about length of naps at x # of months? My lo only naps for 55-75 minutes. It would be interesting to see how many others take short naps.The waketime polls ended after 6-7 months? Are your going to any more for waketime for 7-8 months, 8-9 months, etc?

    Yes, I will do that. You can look at the polls asking what age they dropped naps to get an idea in the meantime. You can guess that those dropping the third nap only have two naps. I am going to continue waketime polls. I thought we might be getting sick of the same question so I thought I would mix it up for a few rotations. It will also give some babies time to get older and get into that range so we can get more results. The more people who respond, the more accurate the averages.

    If I don’t do that poll within a couple of weeks, remind me about it. I am not on my main computer so I can’t add it to my list. I seem to be forgetful right now 🙂
