"How long should my 4 month old nap for in the day?"

Typically a 4 month old baby would have between three to four naps per day and these will vary in length form 30 minutes to 2 hours. So if your baby is having 2 hours in total that would be around four naps of 30 minutes per day.

Of course all babies are different, and we do have to bear in mind that at four months that your baby could be hitting the four month sleep regression, which can cause disruption to not only night time but also day time naps so you do need to bear that in mind as well.
