  • My daughter is usually up by 7:30 or 8 in the morning and takes a 1 to 2 hour nap around 12:30 or 1, then bed time is at 8, unless she is being unbearable then it is 7:30.

  • My daughter is 5 now and starting kindergarten soon so we have to keep her on a schedule. But when she was 3 it was all over the place. She would go to bed each night from anywhere between 8 and 11 and she would usually sleep until 9 or 10. I asked her dr. if it was ok and he told me as long as she was getting 12-13 hrs of sleep a day it didn't matter when she did it. The reason it was so off was because my husband sometimes didn't get home until a little late and he wanted to spend time with her. But now she goes to bed at 7 or 7:30 and gets up at 6 or 6:15.

  • my son usually gets like 6-8 hours of sleep a night. no naps during the day. :-( not sure whats up with it. I went to the doctors and she said that it was "normal"... but I will be asking again when he goes in for his 4 year check up.

  • Mine is just turning 3. Here's her schedule...
    She's up by 7am. Her choice - I've never been able to get it later and keep it there.
    She takes a nap from about 1 to 3.
    She's in bed by 7:30 and asleep by 8pm.

    That's about 11 hours at night and about 2 hours in the day... 13 total.

  • My son is 3. His schedule is
    Wake up between 6:30 and 8:30 (it really depends on how long his nap that day was, and what time he was in bed)
    Takes a nap at noon (and sleeps somewhere between 1 and 2 hours)
    In bed between 8 and 9.

  • summer schedule is bed at 8 and up at 8.

    but school schedule (big sisters) is bed at 7, and up at 7.
