    Default How many sleeps does your 1 year old have a day and how long??

    Little L WAS having 2 a day 9.30 for 2-3hrs then 2.30 2-3 hrs BUT NOW im lucky to get 1hr a day!! We did get out of wack with moving ect... She rubbes her eyes and thats her sign that shes tired i put her to bed and she cries or just talks i go in there and settle her this can go on for hours! Any ideas? should i just keep going untill she sleeps and do the 2 naps a day still or cut it back to one... her brother was the same stopped his naps at age 1 just napped every few days.

    Hey I started a similar thread in the General Parenting section the other day (called 12mo routine).

    Most days DS still has two naps but sometimes one. He is hard to get down for them and if he sleeps too much then he won't sleep at night (and if he sleeps too LITTLE during the day he won't sleep at night either).

    Can you try one nap for a few days and see how she goes? Maybe she's just not tired enough when you are putting her down?

    DS went from 2 a day to just 1 at 14 months - he used to do a 1 hour nap from 11.30-12-30 and a 2 hour one from 4.30-6.30pm but now its just one 2-4pm and is in bed by 8.30

    DD dropped to one nap a day from 11 months. It was an easy transition for us as she was clearly ready - though I did slowly push it later in the day until it got to about 12pm. The length of the nap varied from 45mins - 2.5 hours, but generally averaged about 2 hours. Any less than that and she was a nightmare by late afternoon!

    miss H still has two naps, but i do believe she is on the way to cutting back to one. She will sleep from 9-11(ish) and then 1-2. bed for her is at 6:30pm.
