How much sleep, total, does your 2 year old get a day (naps and at night)? Mine sleeps 11 hrs at night and one 2-3 hour nap. I just want to see how she compares to other kids and if she getting enough or too much.

Thanks!!

I think that's pretty much the average. My son is about the same, but will sometimes skip his day nap. I recently read that many kids do start to skip their daytime nap at this age. I was devastated. I thought I had another year at least before this became an issue. Luckily most days he'll still go down, I just have to make sure he has an active morning session (preferably with time outdoors), otherwise if he doesn't get his nap he turns into a little terror in the evenings (proof positive he still needs that nap!)

Adam goes to sleep at 7pm and wakes from 5 - 6am, then 45min - 1hr at daycare or 2 hrs at home (naps).

Connor usually sleeps 11 hours at night and 3 hours during the day. I don't restrict his sleep; if he is tired he will sleep and I won't stop him.

My daughter sleeps 11 hours total. 9 1/2 hours at night and an 1 hour and a half nap time.
I've read that they sleep 11(min)-14(max) hours during this age. It depends on the child.
Lately my daughter refuses to take a nap and she sleeps earlier at night.

My 2yo gets 10 hours at night and about 2 hours for nap. As long as they are happy, they are probably getting enough sleep.

My daughter takes about the same amount of sleep. I take her to bed at 8 pm in the evening and she sleeps till 7 - 8 am in the morning. during the week she is in creche so there she takes an afternoon nap of 45min - 1 hour. over the weekends i let my daugther sleep 2 hours. sleeping is healthy for them is helps them grow don't worry too much about it.
