Brendan went to 1 nap a day around 17 months. It ranges from 1.5 hours to 3.5 hours.
It sounds like your little one just might be going through a short phase. Between 18 and 24 months their little minds are on overdrive and they tend to regress a bit and cling to familiar things, and go through some separation anxiety. A few posts back I mentioned how all of a sudden Brendan couldnt live without his pacifier, which was never a big clingy object for him. It was a bit dramatic for a week, but then I think he caught up a bit and wasnt as demanding (we are still working on how to get rid of it by 2). The follow couple weeks he'd scream bloody murder for bed time and he never did that. He wasnt sick, scared, wet, etc, it was just something he was testing me for or going through.
I think if you give it a week or two, the naps will get back on track. Just keep putting Nolan down and talking about nap times and hopefully it kicks in again soon.
Hope that helps!
