What time does your 2-year-old wake up and take a nap?

I'm wondering what time does everyone else's two-year-olds wake up in the morning and what time they go down for their naps? Mine is waking up at 7:30 ish and doesn't want to nap until about 1 pm.

  • MIne's up around 7-7:30, sometimes a little earlier, and doesn't ever go down before 12:30, but it's usually at least 1. He then sleeps for about 2 hours, sometimes a little less, sometimes 3. But 2 is normal.

  • My girls wake up anywhere between 5am and 7am... they NEVER sleep in past 8. Though I wish they would. Lol. My 16 month old takes her nap between 12 and 1 and my 3 yr old almost 4 yrs old doesnt take naps much anymore. My 16 month old goes to bed between 7pm and 8 pm and my 3 yr o;d goes to bed between 8pm and 9pm.

  • My son's schedule matches yours. He's up around 7:30 then in for his nap around 1. I seldom let him sleep past 2:30 or so since then I can't get him down at night. Most days he's awake but just laying in his bed when i go in. A couple of friends of mine have kids the same age and run on pretty much the same schedule.

  • My son wakes up between 6:30 and 7:30. I try to get him to lay down 4 or 4 1/2 hours after he wakes up. If he doesn't go down, I have an hour of quiet time and skip the nap (otherwise he doesn't fall asleep at night.

  • My daughter usually wakes between 6:30 and 7:00, and I usually end up having to wake her twin brother around 7:30. During the week they are at daycare and nap at noon; on the weekends I usually don't get them down until 12:30, and even as late as 1:30 some days.

  • My son (27 months) goes to bed between 8-9pm and wakes up btwn 8:30-9:30am. He goes down for a nap 3 hours after he wakes up and sleeps for approx. 3 hours, sometimes longer. He's a great sleeper. :-)
