I was wondering how many hours a day your baby sleep.

Caio sleeps 3-4 hours between 2 naps during the day (morning - 1/1:30 and around 4pm - 2/2:30) and about 9 hours a night. He is a good sleeper and doesn't seem to be sleep deprived. But I wonder if he should sleep less during the day and more during the night...

He goes to bed at 9pm and I heard this is waaaaaay to late. But I don't force him to go earlier. That is when his body is ready to go. And as I said, he is not sleep deprived. He he wants to sleep, he'll sleep wherever he is.

When Oz isn't teething, he sleeps about 12 hours, bedtime at 7:30 & up around 7:30 or 8. He usually takes a.m. nap around 9:30 (1 hour) then an p.m. nap around 1 (2 hours). With teething (right now) his schedule is off no matter how hard we try - he's boycotting the a.m. nap, sleeps about 1 hour in the p.m., goes to bed around 9 (if we're lucky), wakes a few times during the night, and is up by 6:30 or 7 (you'd think he'd be exhausted - I know I am!).

My daughter sleeps about 12-13 hours a day. 2 x 1.5 hours naps (at 9 - 10.30am and around 1.30/2 - 3/3.30pm) and 9 - 10 hours sleep at night with 1 - 1.30 hours play and feeding time around 2 - 4 am. She goes to bed at 6.30 - 7.30 pm which is her natural sleepy time (sometimes she even goes earlier). I didn't force her to sleep that early. I just observe her natural sleepy time and made it a routine. She is healthy and a very cheerful baby. But lately as she starts to climb and cruise she wants to play and play and play although she is very sleepy. Thus, I have to be extra cautious so she might not be overtired. I think you've done very well with your son. He seems very healthy and that's what most important.

My daughter's bedtime is 9 as well. If I try to put her to bed any earlier, even 30 minutes, its a big fight and she's ready to start the day at 4am. So, she gets less sleep that way and you can tell alllll day that she didnt get enough sleep! She sleeps 9pm-7am with one feed at 5 and during the week she has a 30 minute nap at daycare then a 2.3-3 hour nap when she gets home and on the weekends she has 2 naps at 1.5-2 hours each. I think he is getting the right amount...every baby is different. My friends daughter is 9 months and only taking one 2hour nap a day! And she is the happiest baby ever!

My baby goes to sleep between 7:30 and 8:30 PM and wakes up about 7 AM. She usually sleeps about 11 hours at night. During the day, her routine has changed recently. She generally sleeps about 1 1/2 to 2 hours either split into two naps or just once in the afternoon (which is a recent thing). She sleeps longer if we tire her out taking her swimming or some other activity. I know lots of moms whose babies go to sleep closer to 9 PM. Whatever works for your family is best. It sounds like Caio gets the same amount of sleep as other babies just spread out differently.

While I personally agree that 9 is quite late I certainly am not going to tell another mom when to put her child to bed! :~D Without knowing his whole routine I would guess that the 2 hour nap at 4pm is why he is "able" to stay up til 9 with no problems. My son is usually waking up at 3:30 or 4 and goes to bed at 7 or 7:30...so with that math if your son is waking up around 6 the he would go to bed at 9...



However- in my opinion I would expect him to sleep longer than 9 hours- more like 12. You would probably find that putting him to bed earlier would not make his wake up any earlier (it might even push it back).



My son usually sleeps for 1 1/4 hours in the morning (9ish-10:30) and 1 1/2 to 2 hours in the afternoon (2-4). Then bedtime between 7 and 7:30 and wake up between 6:30 and 7:30 (this morning was 8:15- ahhh! what a nice break! haha!)

My DD goes to bed at 8, gets up at 7:30 am (with intermittent waking/feedings 2-4 x a night - she's still hooked on the boob, but she's really only half awake for these. It's more of a paci/comfort thing). She has a morning nap of about 45 min-1 hour, then a 2-2 1/2 hour nap in afternoon, then about an hour early evening nap. So, all told, up to 16 hours in a 24 hour period. This is her weekday schedule, as daycare wears her out. Weekends, she's up more, takes a bit shorter naps and sleeps about 1-2 hours less at night because she's not overstimulated with a bunch of other babies/toddlers. As long as your son seems to be happy, healthy and is not cranky all the time, he's probably fine with the schedule he has. And don't listen to other people when they tell you what time your kid should be in bed by. With our first baby, my hubby worked midnights and watched baby while I worked swingshift days/eves. So he only slept when the baby did. To make it easier on him when I worked days, I let our son stay up later at night and he'd sleep sometimes as late as noon. So my hubby would get home a little after 7 and get up to 5 hours sleep before needing to get up with baby. It was the only way he survived that year and our son is now 11, and healthy, well-adjusted, at the top of his class and, believe it or not, a complete morning person. He's the kid who sets his alarm on the weekends so he can get up earlier than everyone else and watch whatever he wants on tv. Go figure! You do what works for your family and let everyone else worry about themselves...
