Ok so my SO thinks that a 3 hour nap in the afternoon is too much for our 7 month old... what do you think? Generally she will only nap like this if she doesn't take a good morning nap, like yesterday she only napped in the morning for about 30 minutes but then took a 3 hour afternoon nap. How do I get him to understand that she needs lots of sleep to help her grow?

I definitely don't think it is too much whatsoever!
If she doesn't get a good morning nap, then why not let her sleep as long as she wants in the afternoon?

My DS does this same thing, he's almost 8.5 months old and does the same thing. Normal naps = morning nap of 2 hours afternoon nap of 2 hours!
If he doens't have a good morning one, then he's even slept for 4 hours in the afternoon!

I say, let them sleep as long as they want.
