I was just wondering if anyone else's baby is down to just 1 nap a day. For the past few weeks, my daughter will only take 1 nap a day. Finally I stopped trying to get her to take more than one nap. Her doctor said that she likes babies her ago to sleep 14 hours in a 24 hour period. She sleeps 12-13 hours at night, and naps once for 1-3 hours. 1 - 1 1/2 is the usually amount she sleeps for a nap. I know that most babies don't make that switch until between 12-18 months. (according to the books) She was about a little over 8 months when she started doing that. I was wondering what your babies sleep schedule is? How much do they sleep at night, and how many naps and for how long?

My baby's been doing 1 nap since she was 3 months! She sleeps from 10:30pm - 9am and then takes a 3 - 4 hour nap in the afternoon. Her one nap totally works for me since I get a lot of house stuff done when she naps! :)

my baby went through a faze of one nap a day between 8-9 months old. But she's back to two naps now. But if your baby is getting enough sleep at night time then she only needs the extra needed during the day. I know its a shock when it just happens just like that but you just have to go with it i guess, hopefully its just a faze

My first son when he was around 7 month old he sleapt once in a day for 2-2,5h. And night he can sleep more then 12 h. And when he was 1 year old he stop taking naps at all I was very unhappy coz I couldn't get any rest. But I am happy coz he is good sleeper. Now I got 8month old who looks like gonna be taking one nap coz he doesn't sleep very good at night. :)

Pretty much since Morgyn turned 9 months (couple weeks ago) she has cut out her morning nap. She usually goes down between 7-7:30 and sleeps till 6:30-7. Most days now she has a nap from 11:30-1 ish. I don't think that I am ready for only one nap a day. :-)

My 9, almost 10-month-old, has been fighting her morning nap the past week. Normally, she's slept 10-11 hours at night, take a 1 1/2 to 2 hour nap in the morning and another one of that length in the afternoon.

Recently, she's been fighting what used to be her normal morning nap time and seems to be alright with having one nap.

My little girl is 9 months old and usually takes 2 naps a day. A few weeks ago she started to fight her morning nap. Luckily on most days she will still take 2 naps a day, but today she only took 1. She sleeps about 10 - 11 hours at night and typically she'll nap 1.5 - 3 hours during the day. On the days she only takes one nap, it's usually a 2 hour nap in the afternoon. I thought that 9 months was way too early to be down to 1 nap a day, but if the baby is still getting around 13 hours TOTAL sleep a day, they are fine.

Hey Katie, I know I'm a lil late but I just saw your question, and I wanted to let you know that my baby only takes one nap a day and she is nine months. I find it to work great for me since she's out by 8pm and sleeps thru the night. I talked to her doc about it and she said that I am a very lucky parent... I don't think is anything you should worry about. ;)

My daughter sleeps 11 hours at night and then usually take two naps during the day, but we are lucky if she sleeps more than an hour at a time. I think every kid is different. She also has days when she will not take a nap til about noon, and if I can get her to sleep more than an hour, that might be her only nap. i think total sleep is more important. My 2 1/2 year old actually sleeps more than my 9 month old it seems! Just remember, not every kid will follow what is in the book. One of the ladies I work with had her oldest child give up naps completely when he was 10 months old.

Emily has been changing her mind week by week. She sleeps about 10-12 hours at night. Sometimes she'll take two naps and sometimes she doesn't even want one! This week she's taking two a day.

mine sometimes doesn't want a nap all day long, other days she'll take two naps for two hours each. most often she's ten hours a night and two naps during the day. but hey, if you get thirteen at night good job for you.
