Wake at 6am, 1st nap after school run around 8.45. Sleeps around 1hr + up around 10ish. 2nd nap around 1pm until school run. Then bed by 6/6.30. DS is 11mths and been on this routine since around 8.5/9mths.
I think its common for 2 naps totalling 2.5-3hrs at that age.
My DS is 10months, he's been on two naps for awhile, neither of my two children (have a 6 year old too) were/are great sleepers.
His routine has to fit around school drop off and pickup, so it looks like this;
8am(ish) - awake
10.30-11am(ish) - nap1
* This can range from 45mins on a bad day to 2hrs on a good day but "generally" its 1hr-1hr30*
3.30-4pm(ish) - nap 2
* This nap is generally an hour, especially if he hasn't slept long the first nap. I don't allow him to go past 5pm*
7.30pm(ish) - In bed for the night.
*He does still wake twice a night for a feed, usually 12.30-1am and 5-5.30am and will for the most part fall back to sleep while feeding*
Pretty much he does 3hrs, 3.5hrs and then 2.5hrs for awake times.
I'm hoping it's just teething (there are like 6 cutting through) and hitting Leap 5.
She seems happy enough for the majority of her wake time, so I don't feel that she needs it. Just my bad luck that her dad is useless tbh.
ETA: the main problem is the random inconsistencies.
So it's routine for 10 days, then we have her older siblings and it's all over the place due to activities.
