    Default How much does your 1yo sleeps in 24hrs?

    Just hoping to get some idea of how much is normal. My lo is 13.5 months and is changing to one nap. The last couple of weeks have been crazy with him waking up at 5am every day so I'm hoping that was a phase!!!
    At the moment he sleeps 7pm-6am (if I'm lucky) and then has one nap of 1.5-2hrs, that works out roughly as 12.5hrs in 24, does it seem too little? I thought they were supposed to sleep 13-14hrs? I'm also not sure how to make him sleep past 6am, 7-7 would be nice (and all bubs in my moms group do that!) do not sure why my lo doesn't I don't pick him up straight away when he wakes up, usually get him out of bed at 6.30...

    My DD is 1 and she goes down for the night around 7pm, wakes again between 1-4am for a bottle is up fr the day anywhere between 6:30-8:30. She naps for around 2 hours during the day and sometimes other short sleeps in the car or a late afternoon. So that would make it roughly 12 hours overnight (minus the 25 or so minutes she's awake for her feed and nappy change) and then add the 2 hours for her nap- around 14 hours.
    What you've described sounds perfectly normal I think?

    When my daughter was 1 she would sleep about 11 hours at night- could never stretch it to 12. She was also having 2 day sleeps- one longer one for 1.5 hours and another for 45 mins.
    Now she is 27 months and still sleeps roughly 11-12 hours overnight and has one day sleep for 1.5- 2 hours.
    As long as she is happy, growing well etc- dont stress so much.
    Us mums seems to stress too much over sleep and how much and what they eat

    Ds1 slept 3 hrs during the day (12-3) and around 11/12 hours at night (7/730pm until 6/630am)

    Ds2 loves to sleep in. Day sleeps are 2 hours (12.30-2.30/3)
    Night is 12-12.5 hours (7.30pm until 730/8am).
    Ds2 wakes 1-2 times in the night and ends up cosleeping with me.

    Sounds very similar to my DD's sleep schedule. She's 15 months and has dropped a day sleep as of a month or two ago. She goes to bed around 6.30pm and sleeps til about 5am most mornings. Sometimes I'll get lucky and she'll sleep until 6! She goes down for a morning sleep around 10.30-11am and sleeps for 1.5 -2 hours. She's usually a pretty happy easygoing baby so I'm not too worried that she's not getting enough sleep. It would be nice, and I've tried putting her down an hour later at night but she still wakes up at 5 and then is super tired and fussy not long after and needs an earlier day sleep so I give up!

    DS3 (14mo) sleeps from 6pm to 7am and has a 1 hour nap during the day. So about 14 hours in a 24 hour period. He has been doing this for about 4-5 months now.

    I has trouble with DDs sleep when she dropped to one nap a day. It took a while to transition and there were a few days that she was too tired for the one sleep and napped as late as 5pm, then was up until all hours. She's always been a night owl, I've tried to get her down for her night sleep at 6.30/7 but she would always wake up constantly until I went to bed so we've come to terms with her being up late. She's 16 months now and sleeps from 8/8.30pm - 9am and will wake up for a quick 5 min feed about 5 or 6. She has a nap at 12 till about 2 or 2.30. This works for us because DH can spend time with her when he gets home from work.

    My 12mth old goes to bed at 5.45pm or 6pm til 6am (give or take, wake up can be earlier or later). First sleep from 9.30am to 11am, then second sleep from 1.30 or 2pm til I wake her at 3 for school pick up. So, added up, equals 14/15 hrs approx. She still only goes about 3 hours awake time in a stretch. She can be awake longer than 3 hrs but she gets upset...
