Need some advise for my 10 month old

Hi I am wondering how much sleep my baby boy should be having during the day. I put him down at 8 to 9:30 in the morning and then again from 2:00 till about 3:30. He goes down at night between 7 adn 7:30 and wakes between 5 and 6 in the morning. I was hoping to somehow get him to have one sleep during the day. Any advise?
He is 10 months now

  • Yes He does sleep when I put him down. My question was: He has two naps during the day which I want to change. I would like him to have one long sleep during the day instead of two
    1 1/2 hours sleep.

  • my 10 month old wakes up 9.30 am then naps from 12-1pm then 3-4pm then 7-8pm of course sometimes just a 20 minutes nap but these are the times then goes to sleep at night around 10.30 and wakes for a breast feed at 7 am then sleeps again till 9 so around 12-14 hours total i think is the average for this age

  • Mine weren't even near ready to move to one nap until at least a year. You can try moving the morning later and the afternoon nap earlier until they kind of meet around noon or 1...but if he's getting up around 5-6am, I don't think he can go that long with out a nap. But...every kid is different. My 2 year old goes from 6am to 12:30...but he's not always pleasant by naptime.....

  • Thank you TiccledBlue. I think I will wait until he is one wich is not too far away and then start. Thank you everyone for your answers.
