So how long is your lil one sleeping?

My son is ten months old and I think he sleeps alot!! This is not a complaint by any means:) Just curious as to your lil one's sleeping schedule. He goes to bed @ 8pm and we wake him(yes wake him!) @ 6:30am on work days. Off days he will sleep till almost 8am! He naps for about an hour around 10-10:30 then naps for 1-1 1/2 hours around 3. He goes to sleep on his own in his crib so I know when he naps it's because he want/needs it. Just curious on what's going on with others? Thanks for any replies!

  • That sounds about right for a growing baby. My kids still sleep 10-12 hrs./day and they are 3-11 now.

  • My son sleeps from 7pm-10:15pm, and then from 10:45 or so til about 6. and thats it. no naps, no nothing. and it's hell. I really think he would sleep all night but I work until 9 so he knows if he wakes up around 10, he'll get mama and her boobs. haha

  • I think this is just about the right amount of sleep for your little one. My son sleeps from about 9:30pm to 8am and maybe takes a total of 1 and a half hours naps during the day. I think its just fine.

  • Mine goes to bed about 7:30 every night and he wakes up two or three times a night to nurse but goes right back to sleep. He takes about two naps a day.

  • My 5 1/2 month old sleeps from 9pm-9:30am and takes two naps anywhere from 1 - 2 hours, so I know how you feel. I was happy to not be waking up early, but a little freaked out. The pediatrician said it was perfectly okay...she would wake up if she needed food or to be changed.

  • I have a 4month old and she sleeps alot also she goes to bed at 7:30 sleeps till 7:00 then goes back to bed at 9:00am till 11am for a nap. I just think of it as she is growing and if she wants to be up she will get up if she needs more food or something nothing wrong with sleeping.
