What is your baby's nap/bedtime schedule?

[deleted account] ( 9 moms have responded )

I'm not sure if my baby is napping enough in the day. He used to nap a total of 3 hrs when he had 3 naps. He dropped one nap and naps once in the morning and once in the afternoon for a total of around 2 hrs. At nights he goes down for his bedtime at 7:15pm and wakes up around 5:30am. I miss the days that he napped for 3 hrs total.



Just curious what your baby's nap/bedtime schedules are.

Thanks for all your replies.



That's interesting to know that moving the bedtime earlier may result in the baby waking up later in the morning. Our little guy is usually tired by 6:30pm but we try to keep him up until around 7:15am because we're scared he'll get up earlier than his usual 5:30am.

My daughter is the same,she has one hour nap in the morning and a 1 hour afternoon nap.She goes to bed between 6:30 and 7pm and wakes up at 7/8am. But sometimes it can variy when she's teething.

I'll tell my husband. He's the skeptic and fears moving the bedtime earlier.
Thanks.

Hi Tanya, It is definitely true in many cases that when you move the bed time earlier (in fifteen minutes increments maybe) than the wake up time is later. I didn't think this would work for us but it definitely did!

Noah wakes up between 5 and 6am. He is not a big napper. If we are lucky we'll get an hour in the morning and again an hour in the afternoon. Often the only way to get him to take the afternoon nap though is to take him for a walk. He is a night owl and doesn't go to bed till 8:30. He seems tired earlier but we are afraid he will start waking up at 4am. 8 hours seems to be the most he will sleep at night.

Does anybody have experience with trying to move bedtime earlier and wake up time later?

Brooks usually wakes up at 8 in the morning. By 11 she is ready for a nap and usually sleeps for a hour but on occasion she will sleep 1.5-2 hours. Then another power nap at 3-4ish for maybe an hour if im lucky. By 7 its bathtime and then bedtime.She usually sleeps right through. shes usually good but the last couple weeks teething has been driving mommy a little bit crazy

My baby wakes up between six and seven a.m. He then goes down for a 40 min -an hour nap at 9:00a.m. Around 1:00 he has another nap for 40 minutes...He goes down to bed at 6:00 p.m. I wish he would nap more during the day as by 4 he is rubbing his eyes and getting tired. Although I guess I would rather the night sleep!

My daughter does 2 naps. the first one is 3 hrs. after she has woken up and the second one is 3hrs after she gets up from her nap. both naps are around 1.5 hrs long. She goes to bed at 7 and wakes at 5:30 and sometimes goes back to sleep until 7am.

My daughter used to have 3 naps during the day only 30 mins each time but she now only has 1 nap in the morning for 2 hrs. She would normally go to bed at 6pm but for the past week she wont go to bed til about 7.30pm and wakes up at 6am. I feel like she should be having another nap in the afternoon but she just doesn't seem tired enough.
