What time does your toddler wake up & what time does he or she go down for a nap?

I'm working on getting my 18 month old DS back on a schedule. I was just wondering what time your toddlers wake up in the morning & what time do they usually lay down for a nap?

  • He gets up around 7:30 and usually takes a 30 minute nap around 11 (but it looks like that's not happening this morning!) and then another hour longe one around 3. Then is asleep for the night at 9:30.

  • My 18 month old wakes up at 7 am, takes a 2 hour nap around 1 (if I'm lucky), and goes to bed around 9.

  • Sillyfilly - So does your 18 month old sometimes NOT nap? That seems to be the issue we've been having with our DS. He fights his naps sometimes, and wants to go without one. I have let him go without one a couple of times, but then he is really whiny the rest of the day, and sometimes falls asleep early, well TOO early. And then wakes up when DH and I are in bed and wants to stay up for a few hours.
