My daughter has been going to sleep at 10:00 for the longest time. I read some other entries and it seems that most babies go to bed around 7 - 8pm... I'm just wondering if you babies go to bed at 7-8pm, what time are they waking up at? My daughter is usually sleeping by 10:30pm and wakes up at about 8:00am (9.5 hours). She then takes 2 naps during the day, about an hour each. Is getting 11.5 hours sleep per day okay? I thought they needed much more sleep than that!!



Also, recently, due to teething (I think), she's been getting up in the middle of the night, around 3 - 4am... I change the diaper, nurse her a bit, and she falls back asleep. Any suggestions on how to eliminate this nighttime awakening?

ok. my son (born sept 17) is usually in bed around 730, 8 at the latest, and he sleeps for about 12 hrs straight. it nice to have him on that schedule bc i need some time for myself, my hubby, and my older child. my son sleeps about 2 hrs during the day also. now, some babies can go on less sleep, and yours very well could be one of those babies. now, for the waking up during the night....its mainly because that is what she is used to doing. its become such a routine for her that its just what she expects. so if you want to change it, you're gonna have to be diligent about changing the routine. i, personally, let my kids cry it out some. i let him cry for 5 to 10 mins, go in there and shush him for just a minute, put him back down and bump up the time a few mins more. do the same thing over and over, bumping the time up further as i go. they learn to self-sooth and no longer use you as a cruch to go back to sleep. it has worked very well for both of my children. they still know that you are there and don't lose their trust in you because you do still go in there to comfort them for a quick moment, but this is a teaching tool. before you know it, the middle of the night wake up is a thing of the past. if she is persistant about eating during the night, you could just lesson the amount you feed her each night, and then start this process of teaching her to self-soothe too.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My son rarely takes naps. Maybe one a day for about 1-2 hours. I just got him in the habit of giving him a bath at 6pm and he is asleep by 8:30.

When I was working, my daughter was sleeping at 8:00 or 8:30 latest and wake up around 6. (Cause I have to wake her up and get her ready.) And when she's at Daycare, she takes 2-3 naps. But I've taking some time off at the moment and she sleeps at 9:30 and gets up around 10am. So she sleeps roughly 10 hrs. And takes 1 or 2 naps a day. About an hr each nap.

Hi there
My Son goes to bed around 6:30-7pm and sleeps until around 6am, he sleeps through the night now even when teething.
He takes 3 naps during the day and each one varies from 1 - 2 hours, he gets on average around 15 hours of sleep in 24 hours which i think is what they should be on for their age, he is nearly 9 months old.

Hope this helps xx

Hey dear I think you should not worry babies vary some sleep all night where others (hyper babies) do wake up several times... U just have to think that he will overpass this when he is a bit older trust me... My Micho sleeps at 8pm ... he use to wake up at 12 or 1 to eat and then sleep until 5 or 6 now after he turned 9 alone without me feeling it even he sleeps from 8pm till 5am when he takes his bottle and sleeps again till 7 or 8 ... he napps 2 times per day as one hour max ... the key for all good night sleep is to well feed her during the day and DO NOT change his diapers in the middle of the night just nurse feed him and tuck him back in bed changing his diapers will wake him up ( I mean fully awake) ... One more thing if u see him fully awake ready to play put him beside u in bed and make as if u r sleeping (of course with securing all around him) and u will see he will go to sleep in 15 min then take him back to his bed .... it works with me hope it works with u .... enjoy being a mom and do not worry

Abigail is in bed at 730 and wakes up from 730-8. She sleeps all through the night. She takes two naps. First nap at 10 for two hours and second one at 230 or 3 for about an hour. Shes been doing this since 2.5 months old.

Going to bed earlier has worked with both my children, they do sleep longer and the hubby time or "me" time is important and the babies are much happier. Use a good night-time routine, bath, story, songs, nursing and bed. Your baby will most likely go down fine and sleep very well. I wouldn't worry about a midnight wakening as she should be in a pretty deep sleep at that point. And more than likely sleep longer too. Good luck, I'm getting ready to work on the middle of the night feeding as well, baby wakes at around 4am to feed, then goes back to sleep 'til 6 or 7. Sleeps about 12 hours for night time and 3-4 hours worth of napping.

My baby girl was going to bed around 8pm and getting up around 6am. And having one 2 hour nap. Now she has been a bit off lately and going to bed anywhere between 7:30-8:30pm and getting up between 5:30-7am. She has been taking only one nap about an hour long sometimes one or two cat naps. She has been teething since she was 1 1/2 months old, she is 9 months now and no teeth. Some nights she will wake up due to teething, but she usually sleeps through the night. Still no teeth yet!

Some babies need less sleep, not sure if the docs would agree with this statement, but lhave two children, my first kept 3 sleeps during the day until he was over 1, and slept through the night, about 8-6 from 4 months; my 2nd has been on two sleeps since he was about 6 months, he has also been waking a lot during the night (cold after cold for the last 5 months, teething, then it becomes a habit), sometimes when they have a developmental milestone they make during the night again to feed, or to practice what they have just learnt... the trick is to help them get over the hurdle, but then retrain them to sleep through the night agian.... everytime we seem to do this with our 2nd he cops another cold and we are back to square one unfortunatley, but this approach did work really well with my first son. Best of luck
Both my boys went to sleep between 7-8pm from about 4 months old (if memory serve me correct) and still do, oldest is 3 y/o now

My son goes to bed around 7.30-8pm and usually gets up about at 7am. He has two naps during the day and because of teething has now been waking at night. He use to sleep right through. I done my routine this way to fit in with my other two children who are both 7y.o, it gives us mum and Dad time still.

Wendi...I know its hard but I tried for months to make rhyme or reason of my sons sleep patterns and eventually just decided to go with the flow. For months he would not go to sleep before 930pm. I was going nuts! He would then wake at 11pm, 3am and 5am and not go back to sleep. I tested out taking his bedtime back half and hour a week and it worked. Now at 9 months he cannot keep his eyes open after 630pm!!! I have found that a good routine at night has made him so eager to get to bed....no crying, no dramas....just goes straight in awake and is asleep in minutes. I bath him at about 5.15-5.30pm. As soon as he's dressed he has a little play and then dinner. Usually wingey for his bottle by 6 and often falls asleep on it, but otherwise i just give him a quick burp and straight off to bed. He wakes for a bottle about midnight, then sleeps through til 6 or 7. Lucky if he has max 2 hrs sleep during the day and sometimes only will sleep for 1/2 hr during the day.....which makes him exhausted but he just cries and cries to get out of his cot if he isnt"ready" for a sleep.
Overall, I have found that the more stressed I am, the more stressed he is. If I relax and just let him do his thing then we are all happier and have less dramas. Good luck x

my daughter goes to bed around 6.30pm and wakes up around 6am. My 2yr old goes to bed around 7.15pm and wakes up around 6.30am. My daughter will also have around 3 short naps a day, around 1/2 hr.

I was lucky with my son he never woke while he was teething, my daughter occassionally does, I dont think theres too much you can do, if I know she's in pain I sometimes give her panadol before bed

My little guy is normally in bed by 830 and up around 7am. When i'm able to avoid his morning nap he naps about 2-21/2 hours around 12 and then sleeps all night but if he has the 2 naps in the day i find he tends to wake in the night.

My son goes to bed around 8pm and is up about 7-8am. he then has an 1 - 1/2 hours nap around 1-2pm. by the time bedtime comes around, he crawls into bed with a bottle. he has dina at 6pm and bath at 7pm then bed with a bottle. it seems to work for him, so maybe you could try something similar. or maybe try cutting out one of her nap times. maybe a bath and story right before bed. hope that helps a little.

oh and my son is almost 2 and still wakes up during the night. i give him a little reassurance but never pick him up. most times that works or sometimes he just wants another bottle. but yeh :D good luck

Sleep gets better as their nervous system matures.

My son was going to bed at 10, would wake at 5:30 for his soother and then finally up at 7ish. I have recently edged my sons bedtime back to 9:15 and his waking time is about the same.

Waking with teething is normal and unavoidable since it is painful. When his teeth were breaking the surface he would wake every couple hours! It passes though.

I eliminated night time feeds, by getting up several times to give him a soother. Once the 4am feed was gone, I did the same for the 1am feed. Took several days of waking every hour, but now he is a good little sleeper: 9:30-5:30 straight so far.

my 9 month old was going to bed at 7pm but now wants 6pm again. She gets up at 6am. She too started getting up for a night feeding she will do it a few days then not do it a few days. \i believe in time they will eliminate it on their own when they are ready.

My daughter, born 6th Sept, goes to bed at 6.45-7pm. She gets up at 7am, sometimes if we're lucky she'll let us sleep in until 8!! She then naps from 9.15-9.45 then 12.30-2.30, so about 14.5 hours a day, if she has slept in a bit late then I don't give her the early morning nap though.
Fortunately her teeth haven't as yet disrupted her sleep, although if she has had a bad day then I do give her a dose of baby nurofen at bedtime

If your baby is waking up because of teething, then a simple dose of paracetemol will do the trick. You might all think i'm a monster, but mommas need their sleep. So while my daughter was cutting teeth, about 5 nights in a row, i gave her a paracetemol suppository (y'know) at bedtime and it was smooth sailing. The first few nights of the tooth cutting we didn't know what was going on, it was hell. . . she was just up and screaming at us. She was in pain. Now that that messiness is over she back to sleeping from around 10 until 8 or 9 in the morning. like clockwork. I get up at 7:30 have time for a shower and breakfast, with my son. . . it's nice. I hope it never changes.

I have a son who is 9 months old. His routine keeps changing. He sleeps by 10pm and keeps getting up after every 2 to 3 hours for milk. I feel he is used to bottle so thats his security factor. I dont know what to do. I give him his meal by 8:15pm so his stomach is full and then he can sleep and maybe get up once for the feed. Pls advice if someone can help me on this.

My daugther sleeps from 7pm till 7am and has an hour and half nap in the morning from and 2 hours in the after noon. She gets roughly 15 hours all up which she needs!! when she is teething her day sleeps are affected and she is a different baby! I think the key to getting your baby to sleep earlier is to start your day, every day at 7am and dont let bubs nap past 4:15pm. make sure bubs is having 3 big solid meals a day and at least 4 milk feeds (milk first if its a september baby) and then at 7pm put baby down and perseveer until baby is asleep. My daughter doesnt wake at all through the night but when she used to I would give her a chance to go back to sleep on her own otherwise I would go in (leaving the room dark) and rub her tummy till she fell asleep. I rarely pick her up or rock her because I think these clever lil bubbas learn very quickly that you will do it again and again. 3am and 4 is the coldest part of the morning so maybe bubs is waking up cos its cold? try putting some extra layers or blankets on! Hope this helps, it worked for me :)
good luck!

Pretty much every single baby wakes up in the middle of the night... we just don't always know it. What they do in the middle of the night (start crying, or go back to sleep) all depends on what YOU do and how YOU react to it. Babies have to be trained to fall back to sleep on there own, or then they will still be doing it when they are 5 years old (I know people whose kids still do that). My baby, who is 9 months old now, used to wake up and cry, but I wouldn't respond right away. I would let her cry a little bit and most of the time she would go back to sleep. The more you go in and do things, the more they will get used to that being the pattern. My daughter goes to bed at 7:00 pm, and sleeps until 9:30 am. She also takes two 1 1/2- 2 1/2 hour naps a day. She is the BEST sleeper EVER and it is because I "taught" her how to fall back asleep on her own, rather than using "props" to go back to sleep. (props meaning nursing, rocking, etc). I promise that if you stop going in right away, she will start getting used to that, and she will fall back to sleep on her own. You just have to be willing to do it. It's hard though... but my girl is the best sleeper and the happiest baby in the world because of it. :)

Hello, My son is now 9 months old. And he has been sleeping the whole night through since he was 8 weeks old. At that time i asked my doctor if i would be able to give him a big bottle before bed with 8 oz's of formula and 2 tbsp of cereal or oatmeal. And since i have been doing that he has been sleeping the whole night with no problems. We usually try to get im down to bed between 8-9 pm. And he only wakes up in the morning when the alarm clock goes off. He is a big boy and i knew he needed more in his tummy at night time to keep him full and happy. He also takes a 3 hour nap from 9am to about 12 pm. And then he takes a nap usually around 2pm until i have to wake him up at 3:30 to go get his big brother off of the bus. And even sometimes if we are home he will take another nap around 5pm. He loves his sleep as did my oldest boy.

My daughter (9/10) goes down between 7 and 8 depending on the day. She sleeps through the night and gets up anywhere between 6 and 7 in the morning. She was getting up at night for a while and we would give her a bottle, but someone told me they will continue waking up if you do that. We let her cry it out and after 2 nights she stopped. She also takes a 2 hour nap in the morning (8-10) and a 2 hour nap in the after noon (1-3). We are very lucky to have such a good sleeper....on the other hand I have never seen a baby hate a stroller more than my daughter!! LOL

My son is in the crib by 7pm, and not out until at least 7am. He then takes a nap from 9-11am, and another from 1-3pm. But he used to go to bed at 1030ish, I just started moving bathtime up by 20 minutes a night until I got him to a time that I wanted. So now he is in the tub no later than 630 so he can have his bottle and go to sleep. This schedule also worked while I was still nursing (which I only stopped recently) but I do find that he finally stopped waking at 4 am about a month ago for unknown reasons. When he woke he just got a fast diaper change and the pacifier put back in his mouth and he fell right back asleep. We cut out the mid-night feedings at around 4 months. Good luck!

My little one does the same thing. He almost always goes to sleep around 9:30 or 10pm and gets up around 2 or 3 for like 5 minutes then doesn't get back up till 8 or 9. He has started the teething again also so sometimes he gets up earlier in the morning around 7ish. I think its fine that he sleeps like this at night. He does still take either a power nap in the morning or 2 regular naps during the day, around 2 hours each. My doctor told me that it was fine if he went to sleep at this time, of course they want them to sleep through the night but i believe since I am still nursing is why he wakes up for a "snack" (:

Hope it was helpful?!

My daughter is 9 months. She has always gone to bed around 7 or 7:30. Usually she wakes anytime between 6 and 7. She may or may not take a morning nap for about 1 to 1/2 hr. and in the afternoon usually by 1 she will take an afternoon nap. These can last from 1 to 3 hours.. She occasionally wakes at night and will eat 3 ounces and goes right back to sleep. I can't figure out why she wakes some nights and sleeps all night the rest.. So far there is no pattern as far as not eating much or sleeping to much or to little, its very misc.

Hi Wendi! U r so lucky that your daughter is sleeping so nicely from 10pm to 8am. My little one is still waking up for Milk at about 3am to 4pm. She will sleep at 8pm & wake up at midnight, followed by another feed at 3am to 4am before she goes back to sleep...I heard that to wean off from waking up in the wee hours is to give her some water. They will find that its not worth waking up for, after some time. I cant do this yet as my daughter is underweight for her age. She was born
25 Sept 2009 and now weighs only 6.9kg..

My kids all go to bed at about 8pm and wake up about 6-7 am (some of which is necessity during the school year) The non-schoolagers all take a nap after lunch for about 2-3 hours (sometimes longer depending on how active our morning is) So on the low end my kids (ages 9mos, 2 1/2 yrs, 4 1/2 yrs and 6 1/2 yrs btw) get about 12 hours of sleep and on the high end they get about 14+ hours of sleep a day. As for night time waking, I got nothing. I get up with my two younger ones throughout the night (my 2 1/2 yr old gets up once to have his diaper changed but the baby nurses through the night). Good luck!

My daughter goes to bed around 7-7.30pm she goes no later than 7.30pm unless we are going out somewhere special as a family. She wakes between 8-8.30am. She has two naps during the day 11am - 12.00 & 3 - 4-4.30pm, she sleeps through the night. She always has a bottle just before going to bed. She has recently been semi waking in the night but that it because she has rolled onto her tummy & as of yet cannot roll back again so she cries out but as soon as I roll her onto her back she falls asleep.
All babies are different & I don't think there is anything set in stone to help you get them to sleep through. If it is just a recent change then you may be right in it being a teething thing & that it will resolve itself.

My son is 9 m.o. and usually sleeps form 10 p.m. till 8 a.m with two naps 11am-1pm and 4pm-6pm. My husband works till 8 p.m. so I would feel sorry for him if I put the baby down for the night and he hasn't had any time with him at all. But we tend to stay up a bit later so we get our couple time after the baby's asleep. My son is also waking up a couple of times during the night due to teething, but I just put some teething gel on his gums and give him the dummy and he falls straight back to sleep. He doesn't even wake up properly. The last couple of days he has been sweating ALOT because it's been 30 degrees Celzius here in Macedonia. But I give him some water and he goes back to sleep.
But I agree with everyone else, if it's working for everyone and the little one is happy and healthy, why change it?
I read an article the other day that said that 9 m.o. babies need 14-15 h of sleep (11 at night), but I think that my son doesn't need that much. I think I would have noticed signs of sleep deprivation otherwise :)

i had a big problem with my son waking in the middle of the night. two or three times a night sometimes. the only way i got him to stop was to complete take away night time feedings. the first few nights were hard. he would cry and throw a fit because he wanted that bottle. not because he was hungry, but because he was in the routine of getting it when he woke up in the middle of the night. he eats plenty during the day, and even my pediatrician said at this age he's only waking out of habit, not hunger. but after about a week of him not having a bottle in the middle of the night, he slept longer. he only wakes every once in a while now. i would say once every two or three nights. and if i just give him his pacie and pat his bottom he goes back to sleep within 5 minutes.

My little one is 8 months old now and she has been going to bed between 6 and 7 pm since about 4 or 5 months old. I just started to put her to bed and she would just fall asleep. She would occasionally wake again between 10 pm and 12 am . I started to put a little cereal in her milk and that seemed to have worked. She would stay asleep util morning. Now when 6 pm rolls around, we notice that she gets sleepy, so we put her to bed and she usually sleeps until 6 or 7 am which is fine since it's time to get up anyway.

Every baby is different. My older daughter didn't sleep through the night until she was 5 years old.

our wee lad is a sleeper. he has bottle and goes to sleep at 7.30ish and wakes at 6.30 for bottle. goes back down till 8.30 then his nap is from 10.30 till 12, then from 2-4 and then again at 5ish for an hour. he is 9 months old. what a big help for us is the tomy starlight show. a projection thing for on crib with 5 or 10 min timer. its now part of his sleep routine. every time i put him down for nap/sleep it goes on for 5 mins. if he wakes middle of night i just put his dummy in and the timer on 10 and i dont hear another peep from him. he absolutely loves it. he just lies and laughs and smiles at the teddybears! great! also used it for my daughter (now 3) and when i put her to bed and she is restless i put it on in williams room and sure enough within 5 mins shes sleeping!

My 8 month old goes down between 6:30-7:30pm and sleeps until 7-7:30am without waking up in the middle of the night. I've stopped his midnight feed at 3 months actually so he hasn't had to wake up for any feeds since then. He takes a 45min-1hour nap from 9-10am and another 2 hour nap right after lunch (1-3pm). He generally gets tired after being awake for 2 hours so right around 5pm so we'll bathe him and then feed him dinner before he passes out for the rest of the night.

Melly goes to bed between 9:30 and 11 pm. It typically ends up being around 10-10:15 pm. She will sleep usually until about 7 or 7:30 am. I give her a bottle and she will go back to sleep until around 10-10:30 am. She will usually take one or two naps. One is usually no more than 30 minutes, and the other is an hour or so. She has been known to pass smooth out at 8, but that isn't often. She is teething right now, so she has been waking up once during the night... I don't usually give her a bottle then, unless she did go to sleep really early.

We have been implementing a 7:30 bed time for Madi since she was 8 weeks old. She was born on Sept 24, 2009. We do the same ritual every night and have since 8 weeks. I put her in jumperoo at 6:30 give her a bath at 7 feed her at 7:15 and put her to bed. She sleeps 12 hours a night and has since about 11 weeks old. We stick to the same schedule every single night. She also takes a nap at 9:30 in the morning until 11 AM then again at 2:00 to 3:00 PM.

My son usually goes to bed at 9 sometimes later if he has a late nap in afternoon. He has also been waking up anywhere between 3 and 4 to eat but it seems to have been just a faze due to his teething. How old is she? It could be teething causing her to wake. If it is then it will stop once the pain subsides. If she is waking up crying in the night then I would definitely say she is teething or in some kind of pain. Try tylenol if you can't seem to soothe her any other way.

My lil girl, jadyn (9 months) goes to bed b/w 730-800 and sleeps thru until 645-730. She has only woke up once during the night this past week as she is cutting a tooth. She is a tiny one (14 lbs) so i do give her a dream feed before i go to bed around 11-12pm. Without waking her or taking her out of her crib she will drink 4-6 oz no problem. I do believe that this helps in her not waking up throughout the night however on nights where she has had a later final feeding (7pm) i do not do a dream feed and she still sleeps thru the night.
My now 22 month old son was a dream at my daughters age. He would be in bed b/w 8-9 and sleep unitl 10. Those days are long gone as they both are like clock work and wake up within 10 minutes of each other and no later than 730 am.

My son goes to bed around 9 or 9:30 usually and he'll wake up sometimes as early as 8 but most of the time it's 9:30 sometimes even 10. Yes, 10. My son is a good sleeper. I got lucky. He takes two naps. It's usually about a 2 hour nap. For the teething do you give her any motion before bed? That could help if you did that.

If I put my daughter to bed that early she would up for the day sometime between 2 and 4 a.m. - so, her bedtime is midnight and that gets her up in the morning at a decent time.
