My 7 month old Grandson comes to stay with me once a week and he is very comfortable @ Grandmas house . He will take his first nap for about 3 hrs . He is very active that is why he sleeps so long . I have learned not to get him up before he is ready, because then he is cranky.

I always say that I have the baby that never sleeps. she only takes one nap in the day about 45 minutes and goes to bed at about 7:00 pm and wakes up like 5 times in the night, and shes up at about 7:00 am. Still have her in my room which is probably the reason why she doesnt sleep much, but thats the only choice we have right now.

My daughter sleeps 12-14hrs at night then has 2 daytime naps that usually last anywhere from 1-2 hours. Tho some times she sleeps upto 4 hours but those days she usually only has 1 nap. Those days are really frustrating as they usually happen when ur waiting for her to wake up to do something ie go shopping etc...lol

Sleep has been an issue for my son recently, who will be 8 months at the end of this month. I think it's mostly his teeth... he already has 4 and 3 more are working their way in. He'll usually sleep 7-8 hours at night, but does wake up some for his paci, or just has a hard time settling down, or teeth issues. His naps have changed quite a bit during the day and just depend on how he slept the night before. Some times he'll take two longs naps 1-2 hours, or a couple of small ones. We just play it by ear.

My daughter is 7 1/2 months old, She goes down for bed around 9-9:30 usually sleeps until around 8, She will wake up in the middle of the night if her nuk falls out, but normally doesn't wake up for anymore feedings. After waking up in the morning she eats breakfast, then about an hour later, she take a nap for about 1-2hrs, again she will take another nap in the afternoon for about the same amount of time.

My son will be 8 months in 4 days. He sleeps 11-12 hours at night and takes about two naps during the day, each about 2 hours. It is wonderful. My twin sons are 8-years-old now. They didn't like sleeping nearly as much.

My daughter sleeps 11-12 hours at night. She takes three naps during the day. 30 min nap about eleven. 2-3 hr nap about one thirty and sometimes another 30 min nap about six or six thirty. I love the afternoon nap because she sleeps at the same time as her older sister! Mommy gets a lot done!

I agree with Christine...My son usually takes two or three naps that are roughly 30-40 minutes long, and then sleeps 11 hours at nght. (usually. not now, because he is getting all four top front teeth at the same time. Right now he's not sleeping at night.)

my son goes to bed by 7:30 pm and usually wakes up around 7:30 or 8am so roughly around 12 hrs at night. His naptime is never the same. Sometimes he takes a 3 hr nap during the day and still goes to bed at 7:30. Sometimes he barely sleeps an hour during the day!

My son is about 11-12 hours through the night and takes about 2 or 3 30 minute naps through the day. He's been doing this since he was about 2 months old. I'm just wondering if he may take longer naps in the afternoon once he is more mobile and using up more energy??

My daughter's first nap is from 11am-noon then from 3-4:30 then she's in bed for the night at 7pm and gets up at 9am the next day. Her naps have been the same since she was about 3 months old but she has been sleeping through the night for about a month now.

Occasionally, Ava will sleep 1-2 hours but that is rare and I think its only when she is teething. Normally, I get 2-3 naps a day that last about 30 minutes. I put her down for the night at 7ish and she usually sleeps until 6 or 7 am. Regardless of when she falls asleep, she wakes at around the same time each morning.

My baby turned 8 months old on March 10th. She has been taking 2-3 naps a day about 1-2 hours at a time. She is also sleeping 12 hours a night. I keep her on her schedule as much as possible. I believe this is why she is such a happy baby. At night we have a routine of eating supper, getting a bath, and down for the night. This is done every night even at grandparents house. She has been on this sleep schedule since we came home from the hospital. She will not take a binky so I don't have to worry about her loosing it in night. I also never woke her up to feed her. I was lucky and didn't have any pain when breast feeding so I didn't have to wake her up. Once you get into a routine it will be ok. Good luck.

My daughter is 7 1/2 months and I started sleep training her at 4 1/2 months with the Sleep Easy Solution book. Right now she has 2 naps a day which total about 3 hours and 15 min, she goes down for bed at around 7 pm and wakes 6:30-7am. This book was amazing and very easy read. I got mine from www.pumpstation.com. Its about $15. you can find it cheaper on amazon. It's for babies starting from 0-5 years old. Its a lifesaver!!

My 8 month old son usually sleeps a total of 10-11 hours at night (waking usually 1-2 times for a feed) and for naps he usually has one 1-2 hour nap in the later morning and usually one in the later afternoon for about an hour or so. He used to have another one in the early evening but he hasn't done that in a while and it seems like lately he doesn't even want to go down for the second one.

My son is almost 8 months. When he is not sick with an ear infection or cold (which is always, due to daycare) he sleeps about 2 to 3 hours during the day (about three naps) sometimes 30min naps sometimes 2 hour naps. Then sleeps from 7pm to about 6:30 to 7am.

My daughter is a power napper - 2 maybe 3 naps if im lucky, not more than 30min long, and then 11 hours overnight. Shes been this way since about 4 months. I used to stress out that she isnt getting enough sleep, since every other mom I know has a baby that takes 2 hour or longer naps throughout the day, but Ive just accepted that she naps this way.
