  • My LO sleeps 11 hours at night and takes a 2 hour nap. My nephew is the same age and sleeps 12 hours at night and takes 2 two hour naps.
    Every kid is different. If you nephew needs more sleep, he will be cranky at bed time. If he is happy then there is no cause for concern.

  • Definitely not too much! My kids actually slept more than that at that age.

  • My DD sleeps between 10-12 at night and then she takes atleast a 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours nap a day depends on naps. If you talk with any parent that has a one year old then thats just enough and he may need more. You have nothing to be concerned about with your nephew, his is just fine, his a growing child sleep is good for them at that age.

  • 9-12 Months Old -baby now typically sleeps from 10-12 hours at night, takes two naps
    1-3 Years Old : 12 - 14 hours per day
    Just google "How much sleep do children need" that is how I found my info, it was on MedMD.
    Also you need to stop being a nosey aunt. That will piss off you sis or SIL and hurt your relationship.

  • I hope not either! Mine goes down at 8:30 wakes up at 8:30...then she will eat breakfast and sometimes crash out again til 11 or sometimes 12! She goes back down at 3:30 for about an hour. She is a sleeping machine, but she is so busy and active all day she wears herself out.

  • Perfectly normal, if not a bit below normal. Most kids that age sleep 12 hours at night with a 2 hour nap.
