bedtime question

Dd is almost 18 months. She goes to bed between 8-830 at night, sleeps until 7 or 7:30 then goes down for a 2 hour nap at 11 and a 1.5 hour nap at 4. This is working for her but I feel like she should be going to bed earlier. What time do your los go to bed?

Earlier than that? Why? Does she have work or school in the morning?
My oldest goes to bed at 8, the younger one goes to bed between 8:30 and 9

My 2.5 yo goes at 9 and sleeps 'til at least 9 the next morning. No naps. I think your sleep schedule sounds fine.

Earlier than 830. Obviously she doesn't have work or school but isn't 830 a little late for a baby/toddler?

When my son was that age he went to bed later and slept later.

That sounds like entirely too much ssleepy kid has never gone to bed before 9. He's in kindergarten and goes to bed at 930.

If it ain't broke don't fix it!! If she's sleeping through the night, napping sufficiently and devoloping normally, don't mess with it!! Just go outside and thank your lucky stars you've got a baby who sleeps so well!

I don't think she's getting too much sleep though. They say 14 hours total for 12-24 months

Sounds like your kid is not getting enough sleep.  Mine all go to bed at 8 pm, even the 11 year old.  They get up at 6 to get ready for school.  any less than that and they are demons the next day.

My kids used to go to bed at 8 at that age, but that's not that much later.
