Just wondering how often your babies have naps, what times of the day and so on.

my little man usually wakes between 7 and 8 in the morning, he will usually nap at about 11 am for 30 mins although when we're at playgroup he stays awake as doesnt like to miss out!! he will then go down in his cot after lunch at about 1 pm for an hour and a half  to two hours, i make sure he is by 3. he then goes to bed between half six and seven and sleeps straight through. x

Lily is pretty consistent. She wakes around 7:30-8am. Her morning nap, around 10:30, is 45min to an hour and 15min. Her afternoon nap, around 3:30, is about 2 hours long. Lately her naps have been longer (growth spurt) and we want to drop the morning nap too. She has no problem skipping the am nap when we're out and about or playing with friends, but if we're just at home, then we'll just put her down and she's out like a light. She goes to bed at 8pm and sleeps straight through. There has only been 2 nights that she was fussy to put down, otherwise we put her in the crib, turn out the light and walk away.

I started a schedule early on and it works great BUT don't get my son off his schedule - he gets extremely upset if he is tired and not at home. He will fall asleep in the car and stroller if tired enough. He gets up between 6-7am. first nap at 9 for about 1 1/2 -2 hrs. Then afternoon nap at 2 for 1 1/2 -2 hrs. sometimes longer. Today we had to wake him up at 5:15... I think he's going through a growth spurt. Usually 1 1/2 hrs in the normal.

hi my daughter has only one nap a day, she wakes at about 8 to half past plays all morning has dinner at 12 then goes up for a nap and sleeps for about 2 hours she then stays awake till 7.30 when she goes to bed. this seems to work really well for her as she hardly ever seems tired and is always ready for bed when she goes. the only problem seems to be when i have to go out for the day she doesn't get as much sleep which make her cranky

Hello! Up until this week Sebstian was having two naps of approx. 2 hours each, one at around 9.30am and one at around 3.30pm, then to bed at 7.30pm.



I think he is at the stage where he needs only one nap per day, because he is staying awake for much longer periods and the second nap is starting to move back to 4-5pm, which means he's ready to play instead of ready for bed at 7.30pm. We have been trying to cut him down to one nap this week, which is going ok although he is very tired by the time we put him down (around midday).



Sebastian often wakes up around 4am for a bottle, then goes back down until 6-7am but I'm hoping now he's down to one nap he might make it through the night more regularly!

Hi there, my son Caleb has two naps during the day. One at around 10am for approximately 2 hours. His second nap is around 2:30pm for around 1.5 hours. Goes to bed at 8:00pm and normally wakes for a breastfeed at 12:30am then straight back to sleep and doesn't wake till about 7 - 7:30 in the morning.

We have a pretty similar schedule. My son wakes up between 6:30 and 7 takes his first nap around 9, for an hour (up to two hours), and then goes back down around 1:30 for another hour nap. He goes to bed between 6:30 and 7 each night, and knock on wood, sleeps through the night.

My son also takes two naps-one after he's been up for about two hours in the moring. This is usually a long one-sometimes 2-3 hours. Then another at about 3:30 or 4pm. This one is usually only an hour or so. My other kids are home from school by then, so he is anxious to play!

my son wakes at 8, takes a nap 45 min to 1 hour at 10, then takes another nap at 2 with his sister for about 1 and 1/2 hours, then down for bed between 7:30 and 8, whenever he is acting tired.

My daughter goes to daycare and they have a nap schedule. She sleeps from 9-10 am, then back down at noon until she wakes up and goes down at 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm. The third nap does not happen everyday. It all depends on how long her second nap was.

I do the Babywise thing and still have my son on 3 to 4 naps a day. Sometimes it is fewer with daycare. We are trying to space things out, but I have such a little amount of time with him at night, I am not ready to lose a feeding yet. His naps are about 1-2 hours long, and he sleeps at night from about 8-8:30 to 6-6:30.

Our little one takes two 30 minute naps. One around 9:30am and one after lunch time. She goes to bed around 8pm and most nights sleeps through until around 7am. We sometimes change her diaper in the night if she gets fussy, but don't draw it out. She takes at least one longer nap (1-2 hours) on the weekend, she just doesn't nap for long at daycare!

Kelsey has usually 2 naps a day, sometimes 3. I try to keep her on a schedule but sometimes she just does her own thing. She wakes up at 7:30 for a bottle and breakfast and plays for a few hours. Then she goes down between 9-9:30am. She sleeps an hour sometimes 2. Then she has lunch between 11-12 pm. and takes a nap around 1-2pm. Then she has a bottle around 3-4 pm and plays. She may or may not have another bottle but I feed her some of my dinner and she snacks all day, it seems. lol She goes down for the night between 7-8 pm. That's about how it goes everyday. lol

My daughter also has between 1-2 naps. She has one in the late morn (~11am) for an hour and then again in the late afternoon (~4.30pm) again for an hour. She goes to sleep at (10pm) after her last bottle at 9.30pm and sleeps through until 9am. This schedule suits us quite well. Ocassionally I need to wake her early for different things (like swimming lessons) and on these days she may not sleep again in the morning, but instead have one big sleep (1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours) around 2pm.

My son has a nap 2 times a day. Once in the morning (he usually falls asleep between 10 and 11 and sleeps for about 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours) then one around 4ish (for about 45 min to 1 hour)...then he goes to sleep at 9pm. Sleeps most of the night (wakes up once or twice...one time just to be held until he falls back to sleep (around 12:30-1am) and once to have a bottle around 4:30-5am). He gets up usually around 7:30am.

Usually twice a day one in the late morning and one around 4 or 5. Trying to cut the second nap out because then she's wired at night.
