    Default 11 month taking forever to go to sleep at night

    Hi everyone,
    Looking forward to hearing any suggestions. I have an 11 month old who can take up to two hours to go to sleep at night. I have recently just increased her wake times for naps as she started cat napping again with success, but taking forever at night.
    Her schedule goes some like this;
    Wake 630 (WT 2hrs and 50 mins)
    Nap 920ish (sleep for 1.5hrs)
    Wake 11ish (WT 3hrs and 15mins)
    Nap 215ish (sleep for 1.5 hrs)
    Wake 345
    Dinner 5/530
    Bath and bottle
    Bed 630/7

    Last few nights I have put her down at 630 instead of 7 thinking maybe she is overtired and that is why it's taking so long - no such luck. She appears tired when we put her down (yawning, rubbing eyes) and then 10mins later there is a party in her cot. She isn't crying, she is squealing, talking and having a great old time. There are no toys in her cot just dummy's. She finally puts herself to sleep at 8/830. We do go in once or twice to put her dummy in, roll her on her side and give her blanky and say goodnight - but that's it.

    Sorry for the long post. Unsure if its developmental or two much sleep during the day. Thanks for any advice

    My DD was just over 12 months when she started having just 1 sleep a day. It was for about 3 hours but meant she went down better at night BUT trying to keep her awake till 11am'ish for her sleep was really hard.
    Good luck

    I think maybe she is sleeping too much in the day for 11 months 3 hours is a lot.

    i would maybe try 9:45 for the first nap, then 3:15 for second nap, but don't let bub sleep past 4:15.

    Do you have a set bed time each night? Make sure you keep bedtime consistent. I'd say 7:00 if you wake bub at 4:15.
