  • My son is 6 1/2 months. He wakes up at 6. Takes a half hour nap at 8. Takes an hour nap at 10. Takes a 20 minute nap at 12. Takes a 30 minute nap at 2. And then stays up until his bedtime between 6-7.

  • My little girl loves to sleep, she just turned 1 two weeks ago but she's been on this same schedule since she was about 4 months. She goes to bed at night around 8-8:30 and she wakes up around 9:00 am, then her first nap is around 10:30 and then her second nap is around 2:30. and she sleeps a long time at each nap. I'm actually trying to keep her up so I can make it into just 1 nap a day but she gets cranky without sleep.

  • Kids do not know the difference between day or night, We teach them bed time. My kids had at that age two naps. One was after breakfast, short nap. Than after lunch and hour of two. Bed time always the same time, after bath, reading a book than bed by 7:30. tell 7th grade. Have to be consistent and I do guarantee you peace at home. Start now while young.

  • If I put my little one to bed between 6 & 8 his daddy would never get to see him( due to working long days). But I do agree a schedule should be started early on. Thanks everyone who replied

  • my daughter is 15 months. she gets up at 8am goes down for a nap around 12pm and sleeps until 2:30pm. she goes to bed at 9pm and gets up at 8am the next day and we start all over again. having her on a schedule helps a bunch.

  • my son is 8 months. he wakes up at 8, nap at 11-1:30, another nap at some point, then down for the night around midnight. i'm not sure how often he wakes at night, i just know i put him in his bed at night, and wake up with him in my bed and no memory of how he got there.
