How many hours a day is your toddler awake?

My son is almost 20 months old. We've been working on getting him back on a schedule after he began fighting his sleep and refusing to lay down for naps. Right now, things seem to be going good. He normally wakes up anywhere from 6:30-7am, naps around 12:30-1pm, wakes up anywhere from 2-2:30, and is asleep for the night by 8:30-9pm. So he's usually up anywhere from 12-13 hours a day. He sleeps for 10-11 hours a night.

  • My son is 2( will be 3 in Dec). He is a night owl! Usually gets to sleep by 10 and gets up at 7-7:30. He is really starting to fight nap time, but I am not giving up on it just yet! If I can get him to take a nap he passes out for a good 2 hours.

  • DD is almost 3. She wakes up at 630. Naps from 2-4. In bed by 830 at the latest. So I guess she is awake about hours total

  • My 2-year old sleeps 12-13 hours a night and takes a 2-3 hour nap everyday. So he's up for about 9-10 hours a day.
