As the title suggests, I'm wondering about the amount of sleep that my LO is getting.
He will usually sleep around 10-10.5 hours at night and have about 2.5 hours of naps during the day. Most of what I've read online say that he needs around 14 hours of sleep a day. He sometimes gets 13 hours.. Usually it's more like 12-12.5.
At the moment we are back and forth between 2 or 1 nap a day which makes it hard to keep a consistent bed time. I've found that regardless of what time he sleeps at night, he will still wake up at around 6-ish (used to be 7).
I know all kids are different but how much sleep does yours get and how did other mummies handle the change from 2 naps to 1, particularly if your LO transitioned early?

Is my 13 month old getting enough sleep?!!

My 13 month old dropped to one nap a day at 11months. It was the best thing ever ! He went from 2 half hour naps a day to one 1.5-3 hr nap. Bliss!
A few weeks ago he almost stopped napping completely and was having trouble winding down so I looked into how much sleep they need at this age. Anywhere between 10-16hrs a day is normal. Luckily ds is back to his one nap a day and is more settled. It must have been a ww or teething or something.

I know it doesn't help you, but they vary so much!
I'd go by how bub acts, and how you're coping with the routine. If you're happy with the routine, and bub is happy/healthy/active, then I wouldn't be worried.
My daughter probably slept about 14 hours out of 24 at that age, but again...that's what worked for her, not necessarily your bub.

My son is almost 12 months ( his 1st birthday in a few weeks) and he sleeps on average 12 hours in 24 hours. He sleeps from 7pm to 6/7am and has one nap in the day for 1 hour or sometimes and hour and a half.

Dd is 14 months and sleeps 11 hours at night generally with 1 wake up and has 1 day sleep for around 2-2.5 hours.
