# Sleep question

What is the "average" number of hours of sleep does a 15 month old need in 24 hours?

How many hours does your toddler sleep (including naps)?

• Mine sleeps pretty good I think. He's 15 months, He takes one nap a day ranging from 1- 2 hours. Then he usually goes to bed around 10-12 p.m and wakes up around 9-11 a.m , I'm not sure what the average is though.... And I guess I would say he sleeps like anywhere from 12-14 hours a day.

• Children who are out of infancy but are not yet school aged need aproximatley 10-12 hours of sleep. My DS is 3yo and still needs 12 hours of sleep. He takes a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day and gets 10 hours at night.

• My daughter is 20 months old..she takes about a 2 hr nap each day and then sleeps from around 10pm till 8am..so she's sleeping around 12 hours a day..

• my son usually goes to sleep at 8:30pm and gets up at 7:30am of course that varies, then he takes a 1-2 hour nap during the day. 11-13 hours, but he makes up for time lost! LOL

• 12-15 hours is a good amount of sleep 4 that age, you can go to the johnson and johnson site they have a sleep evalution type thing to see if your child gets enough sleep
