    Default Attention mammas!

    How many sleeps/naps per day did/ does your 16 week old baby have a day? And how long was/is their awake time?

    My 16 week old still will only last an hour awake time, which means hes having quite a few sleeps/naps per day. Is this normal? His sleeps will last anywhere between 40- 60 mins..

    Hi, my bub is about 18 weeks and he has 2 sleeps a day. He goes down at night at about 7.30 and wakes about 7.30-8am. Depending on what time he wakes in the morning I put him down 2 hours after that. That way he sleeps for a good 2 hours. Then the same for the afternoon sleep. 2 hours after he has woken. I find if I put him down too early he wakes after 45 mins so I try and stretch him out the 2 hours.

    Yep. Very normal for an hour awake at most then a nap for a single sleep cycle (around 45 minutes). I know at that age I remember one day when my dd had 7 or 8 45 minute naps interspersed with hour long wake times for play.

    My dd is now 6.5 months old and only went to 2 - 3 sleeps a day about 3 or 4 weeks ago. And the length of them can vary from 45 minutes to 3 hours at a time!

    Sounds normal to me. At 4 months DS was awake for between 1 and 2 hours and then had a sleep - probably 3 or 4 sleeps a day. At 6 months he change to awake for 3 hours and has 2 sleeps per day.

    If you think he is waking from a sleep still tired you could try and extend his nap into the next sleep cycle with patting/shhing.

    Have you looked at the tresillian website? They have good info on typical routines for different ages that might be useful for you.
