    Default 6 month old day sleep

    Wondering how much your 6 month old sleeps during the day. What have you found is the best balance with enough day sleep so they're not OT but not too much so that it reduces night time sleep?

    Only just starting to think that perhaps my cat napper needs to drop a cat nap...

    TIA!

    On a good day, 2 1/2 hours broken up into 2 sleeps and, on a bad day, 1 1/2 broken up into 2 sleeps.

    I knew my DD was ready to drop a nap when she didn't seem as tired for the last nap, and getting her down was a struggle. She then moved her bedtime earlier to compensate a little.

    Thanks! That gives me a bit to think about and applies quite well to our situation. So how long is she up in between her sleeps, approx?

    At that age DS2 was sleeping 1.5-2hours 2-3 times a day. DS1 used to sleep (from memory) about 40mins 3-4 times a day.

    She's usually awake 630-7am and naps at about 10 and 2. Then Ed at night about 630pm. That's a good day, anyway! Doesn't always work like that!!
