    Comment still applies. None of my kids had day sleeps after 2.

    Yes but I said that they need it. If you couldn't get your child to sleep for more than 12 hours then that doesn't mean they didn't need it.

    Two of my children wake up at the same time every day no matter what time they go to bed.

    Yup I mean 10 hours in a day. Just one opinion but our paed told us some toddlers don't need 12+ hours of sleep even though that's the norm. They just don't get tired enough and function on less.

    Ok, I was typing on my phone at the same time and didn't see your post. I was just clarifying the 12hr thing, wasn't actually disagreeing

    They wake naturally and happily. If they were waking in misery from being overtired or I had to wake them then yes I would say they needed more sleep.

    I'm more than comfortable accepting my eldest got enough.

    Anyway it's not relevant to the topic.

    Yuck. The fact that babies wake more often non CIO actually tells us that biologically, they are meant to. I'm actually holding back on my thoughts on that article....

    and a cohort of 43? Ummm yeah. You would get better results from this forum. I'm taking the study with a grain of salt and that's being polite.

    Yes but you also said that they need it but they just won't sleep anymore.

    No, the study used controlled crying. The time to wait before going in to re settle is in the original article that I posted.

    This is bull sh1t plain and simple.

    It is not a medical fact.

    It is a damaging to treat it like it is.

    Not all children need a set level of hours of sleep in a 24 hour period.

    There is a average amount but not a set in stone amount.

    A lot of conditions that cause children to need less sleep can't be diagnosed until later in childhood. So as a mum of a young child that doesn't sleep to the average 12 hours can feel like they are failing. When in they are doing the best possible for their child.

    100% this. DS2 does not and never has needed that much sleep. He wakes HAPPY and energised after 6-7 total (broken) hours and no longer had naps after 2. It was ME that was exhausted.

    LLH is right saying this as FACT hurts - it doesn't help.
