  • My son is 19 months and he goes to bed at 8, wakes up around 8-8:30ish, so that's 12 hours, takes a nap from 1 to 3 or 4, so that's 2-3 hours, so that equals to 14-15 hours a day. my DD is 13 weeks, she goes to bed at 8, wakes up and eats for 20 minutes at midnight, and then again at 4:30, then is up for the day at 8- 8:30ish, takes a nap from 11-12 or 12:30ish, wakes up to eat, takes another nap around 1- 3 to get up and eat again. so add that all up and it's about 11 hours and 20 minutes at night, so approx. 15 hours and 20 minutes a day. sometimes she takes an evening nap, sometimes she doesn't. (sorry i had to do the math, i'm horrible at doing it in my head.)

  • I have 3 kids and all are very different. My oldest which is 12 from day one he was an angel slept all night had to wake him to eat and even now he goes to bed at 8 and I wake him at 6:30 for school. My middle son is 8 and to get him to go to bed is a chore he usually stays up after 11pm I don't know how to get him to sleep still working on that one. my little one is 4 and she goes to bed good around 8 to 9 but she gets up through out the night on a good night only once but there are nights she gets up over 3 times so all very different
