In brief: Between 2/3 years
Usually between 2-3 years old but it depends on each child and your schedule.
Sometime you will need the child to nap. There is no fast rule at all.

In brief: I think...
...The person to ask is the baby.
Children act in a certain restless, cranky way when they actually need that nap; if they are consistently fine without it, you can skip it.
