How long should a 7 month old sleep?

My son takes 10 to 15 minute naps in the morning && in the afternoon. He still wakes up two times during the night. I just want to make sure he's getting enough sleep!

  • OUCH! My son took a 2 hour nap in the morning and a 2 hour nap in the evening. He went to bed at 9 and got up at 7. Now that he only takes 1 nap a day its still a 3 hour nap.

  • Yours sleeps VERY well indeed! Mine never napped, and woke far more often.

    They need to sleep as much as they sleep. Instinct guides them on this, and they know what they need during the first year.

  • My baby girl at 7 months used to take at least an hour nap in the morning and then about half an hour at 3pm. She also woke at least two times through out the night.

    Im sure your baby is fine, all babies sleep differently.
