  • According to our pediatrician, 11-14 hours of sleep is what's needed. Our boys are 6, 7 and 13 still sleep about 10-12 hours/night.

  • my daughter just turned 2, she goes to bed at 930 and gets up around 830. Then gets a 2 hour nap between 130 and 330.

  • My 18 mo is sleeping 13 hours at night and takes a nap that is 1-4 hours long depends on the day and her activity.

  • my son goes to bed at 8:30- however won't fall asleep til 9-9:30, wakes up at 5:30-6 and takes about a 1 to 1-1/2 hr nap a day. He's on the Low end of what's needed... he has been since birth. I think he HATES sleep. ok, so he still gets like 9-10 hours a day but it seems like he should need SO much more for how active he is...

  • my son is 13.5 mos, and sleeps around 10-13hrs at night. just depends on the day and his activity level. he's still getting 1-2 naps a day also. one in the late morning and one late afternoon.

  • My daughters (16 months and 2.5 yrs) have never consistently slept more than 10-11 hours at night. Docs have always thought that was fine, even if I wasn't fine with it!! (Because if you do the math, that's 7:30 pm till 5:30 or 6:30 at the latest!)
