  • Depends on how hard he played!! Normally not past 2 hours.

    Listen to your child and trust your instincts!!!

  • As long as he needs to sleep. Mine takes a three hour nap most days. He is up by 9am usually and is in bed by 9:30pm.

  • mines up in the AM by 7:30 and goes to bed at 10pm.. she'll nap anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, depending on how long she decides to stay down.

  • my son is up by 7:30/8:00 AM most days... he'll nap anywhere betweeen 1-2 hours normally. Never let him sleep more than 2.5 hours. Usually in bed by 8/9:00 PM.
