My boy turned one on the 12th. I work on the basis that he can go 2.5-3 hours before getting tired, so depending on what time he wakes up in the morning (6.30am-7.30am), he'll go back down at 9-10.30am for 2.5 hours.



He used to then have another nap at about 3pm until 5pm but now he's at nursery, he doesn't seem to want the afternoon nap.



We put him down in the evening between 6.30-7.30pm and he'll usually sleep 11-12 hours.



I'm thinking that now he's cutting out the afternoon nap I may try and keep him awake longer in the morning (say 3-3.5 hours) so he doesn't have such a long stretch in the afternoon before bedtime.

Wow! My little girl has never slept that well during the day - 20min 2 or 3 times a day & sleep from 7pm till 9.30pm (awake 4 a feed) & back till about 3am & feed & sleep till 6am when she was a baby & then she started to sleep well during the day (up to 1hr x2 & 1 awake during the night) till she was 6mth... She's in a much better routine now & sleeps for 45min+ x2 per day & 1 awake during the night from 6pm - 5am

My son still takes 2 naps a day. They each range from about an hour to three. He still sleeps through-out the night. So Im not worried about it right now.

I think my 12 month old daughter is starting to wean to 1 nap/each. She has had 3 days this week with only 1 nap and only about 1 1/2 to 2 hours long. Than she sleep about 10 or 11 hours at night. Is that enough sleep?

My little girl is 1 on the 19th and she wakes around 6.30/7 and has an hours nap around 10ish and then has another hours nap at around 2 and goes to bed at 7pm i never leave her to sleep for longer than an hour each time and all her naps are in her cot in the dark or in her buggy if we are out. too much sleep in the day can be a cause for ealry waking of a morning i.e. 5am/6am :)

Mine has been teething since age 4 months and naps have been irregular. He wakes at 6-7ish, and goes to bed by 9pm. He is taking 1 nap a day now, and they are usually for 2 hours. It is reassuring to read other 1 yr olds are down to 1 nap.. it has been tough but he still smiles when he finally sleeps!

My sweet baby girl turned 1 on the 7th and she still takes two naps of 1-2 hours each. Bedtime at 7pm and she wakes around 7:30am.

It depends when my daughter gets up in the morning when and how long she naps. If she's up before 7 am she usually takes a morning and afternoon nap lasting about 1 hour each. If she's up after 7 then she takes a 2-3 hour nap right after lunch.

My daughter had been taking two naps 10AM (30 mins) and 3PM (1 hr), and to bed by 8:30PM, feeding once at 4AM and waking at 7AM....but in the last week she has seemed to shift towards an 11AM nap...sometimes with no afternoon nap. So I think we are shifting to the 1 nap day.

Conner will be one the 26th and he usually takes a 45 minute nap in the late morning and that is it. He still gets up at least twice a night as well. I am starting to wonder if I will get any sleep before he is 5 :)

My big guy has two 1.5 hour naps a day. Bedtime is between 7-7:30 and he gets up around 6 am. (we let him play in his crib till 7am though)

My little girl takes 2 naps and they can last anywhere from an hour (she will be a little grumpy though) to 2 or 3 hours, but generally they are 1.5-2 hour naps and she is up about 3-4 hours in between.

Depends on when she gets up in the morning...if she gets up early to go to daycare...say 6:30 am then she will take two naps...one in the morning around 9:30 for about an hour and another in the afternoon around 1:30 pm for about an hour and a half. If it's the weekend and she sleeps late, say till about 9:00 am then she will take one nap about 10:30 am for about 2-3 hours.

my twins are just 1 and they usually have 2 naps a day, morning and afternoon for about an hour at a time. They sleep from 7pm until about 7/8am. If they dont get a couple of decent sleeps they are really grisly and moody! They are very active girls so need lots of sleep!!

Most of the time we still do two nap- about a two hour one in the morning and then a one hour one in the eveing, but the last two days she has been sleeping until almost 9am and then not going down for her 1st nap until after lunch which doesn't leave much time for the evening nap. I layed her down yesterday but she didn't fall asleep before it was "too late" for a nap so she just had the one. She was almost over tired by bedtime though. Still sleeping a good 12 hours a night though.

Depends on the day here. But on a normal stay at home day my son takes one nap a day. He goes to bed between 9-12pm and wakes up around 10-11a. So he usually takes a nap for 2hrs around 2 & 3pm. He's just busy crawling, playing and walking around the table lol. Busy busy little boy. Hope yours has a good schedule =)

Jake will be 1 on the 31st. He has 2 naps during the day. Both at least 1 and a half hours long!

Generally 130pm - 3pm and then 730pm - 930pm. He then wakes for a shower, a little play and a book, and then goes to bed at 11pm to then actually wake up at 1030am.

We are still breastfeeding, and he dreamfeeds at midnight, 3,6 and 9am. Because we co-sleep, we rarely open our eyes to have a feed, so its like weve had a full nights sleep.

As soon as my daughter started to walk at 10months she would only go down for one 2hr nap a day(12:30-2:30 or maybe longer). and still sleeps for 13hrs a night from 7pm to 8am.

awww, ladies, lucky you! My son turns one on the 24th. He takes 2 naps during the day, from 30 min to 2 hrs - every day is different. Sometimes, he skips the 1st nap and drives me crazy :))) Goes to bed around 10, and wakes up @ 8. I dream about the time when he starts sleeping 12 hrs @ night. I'd be the happiest mommy!

My son takes two naps a day, both around 2 hours give or take. Although lately he seems to be trying to shorten his morning nap & I'm not ready for that!! I'm dreading the day we are only down to one nap. ;-)
