  • My son is 2 and sleeps approx. 12-13 hours per night and takes one nap during the day for about 2.5-3.5 hours. He plays so hard he really needs his sleep!

  • They are 18 and 19yo high school seniors. They get about 7 1/2-8 hours a sleep on school nights. On weekends if they work early on Sat. and Sun. they get 6-7 hours and if they go in later (they're both grocery store cashiers) then they sleep about 8 hours before waking up on their own.

  • my ss is 8, but he is special needs. he goes to bed by 830, and he's up around 7, so that's like 10 hours he gets. he is groggy if he gets less sleep. i asked dh about it, and he said that's what he needs. we get him on the weekends, and we keep graveyard shift hours, so we often let him stay up later, but usually he's in bed by like 10 or so. when he stays up later, he sleeps much, much later, i've noticed. he's my only child, and like i said, we're weekend parents.
