Not everyone needs the same amount of sleep. The sleep guidelines are just that, guidelines. My almost 3 year old sleeps 7 hours at night and a 1-2 hour nap during the day. She's never been a sleeper. My now 1 year old is the same. As a baby she NEVER slept. Even now I might get her to take 20 minute naps. My older kids though, whew they slept like champs. I swore some days I never saw them. One slept no joke 18-20 hours a day. He still needs 12 hours of sleep and he's a teen!

My point is if he is acting fine and getting along the day without melt downs he is probably getting enough sleep. If he is getting cranky I'm sure people will give you some tips on that.
