Does my daughter sleep to much??

My daughter is 20 months and I get alittle concerned with how much she sleeps. She gets up at 8am, naps at 10-12, then naps again at 3-5, then bedtime at 8pm. Is this normal for her age?

  • I wouldnt be overly concerned. Maybe mention it to your Dr. just to see, but many parents would consider you lucky! lol.

    My son is 13 months, he sleeps 8pm til 9am. Then naps around noon til 2 and sometimes wants another nap around 530-630.

    I think as long as she is developing normally, you dont have anything to worry about. But again, your dr would know best.

    Good luck! :)

  • I would mention that to the doctor. That seems a little excessive for 20 months.
