As above : Children change when they get older, if u want him to have nap , try to give him a milk bottle.

Take him to the park for a good run and exercise and get him tired. Then hydrated him plenty, the milk is not a bad idea, and he will nap for sure after that. Keep in mind though, that 3 years old don't nap a lot anymore!
