  • Sleep requirements are different for everybody, so if that's how much your child sleeps, and he doesn't seem overly tired or cranky during the day, or fall asleep as soon as you get in the car every time, I think he's fine :)

  • I was told at that age about 10 hours of sleep was what was required, my son is just a little older now your child's sleeping pattern is about identical to his at that age.

  • my 4 year old goes to bed around 8/8:30 and gets up around 7... he's been doing that since age 2. he used to nap on top of that until age 3.
