  • I thought I was the only one wondering about this! My daughter sleeps through the night 6:30pm - 6:30am, with occasional stirrings, waking once between 3:00 & 4:00 to eat and then return to sleep. She takes 2-3 half hour naps throughout the day usually 2 1/2 - 3 hours apart.

  • 4 naps about 45 mins long... and he doesn't sleep through the night (if it matters)

  • 3, one in the morning..for about 1 hr, then one in the afternoon for about 1hr, then he takes a cat nap for about half an hour around 4ish. Then he's in bed by 6pm!

  • My dd takes 3 naps per day: 9am, noon, and 3pm (around those times). I usually take the 9am nap with her, but lately I've been unable to.

  • My daughter took 2 ( 1 in the morning & 1 in the afternoon) at that time, she is a little over 2 now. I could barely keep her awake before naptime, She loved her sleep : )

  • My daughter takes 2 naps--one about 3 hrs after waking, one about 3 hours after she wakes from her am nap. I think it all depends on how long the naps are though, too. I have friends that have kids taking one 3 hr. nap. My DD's are 1.5 hrs long, so she needs two.
