Re: What are your 1 yr old's naptimes and bedtime?

DS was born just a few days after your LO , on the 7th of april 09. He usually takes a mid-morning nap about 2 hours after he wakes up for about 2 hours. He usually wakes up at about 8 and goes down for his nap about 10. He goes down for another nap in the afternoon, usually around 3ish for a couple of hours. His bedtime is 8:30.

Re: What are your 1 yr old's naptimes and bedtime?

my ds turns 16 months tomorrow. for the past 4 weeks he's been phasing out his morning 9am nap...but I lay him down at 11 or 12 and he typically will sleep for two hours. Around 3 or 4 we have "quiet" time in the nursery-which involves me giving him a few stuffed animals or books to play with in his crib for 45 minutes. sometimes he naps...sometimes he just plays. either way i check on him often. he goes to bed between 7:30-8:30.

Re: What are your 1 yr old's naptimes and bedtime?

Thanks for all the suggestions. I think first I wll try a later nap and later dinner time. If this does not work then I will try shortening the morning nap. If there is still no improvement, quiet time sounds like a good idea for me and for him LOL. Esp. for me!!

Thanks again for your replies. I will try to keep you posted but will make no promises with two so young.

Re: What are your 1 yr old's naptimes and bedtime?

At around 14/15 mo my son went from two naps to one nap. It took a couple of weeks - he would still nap twice a day 2/3 days a week but finally he was down to just one nap. Now his sleep is pretty regulated. He sleeps from 7:30/8 until 7:30am or later some days. And he naps at 12:30 for 2-4 hours (usually more in the 2.5hr range but some days he does nap longer).

My oldest changed to one nap a day at about the same age as my youngest. And my middle son I had to force down to one nap a day - I was pg and wanted to be able to nap while they napped but he was napping on an alternate schedule to his brother because he was still doing two naps so I kinda forced the going down to one nap. Anywhere from 12 mo to 18 mo I think is most normal to go from two naps to one. I would just push the morning nap from say 9 to 10 then next week move it to 11 and then to 12 until you have the nap where you want it.

Re: What are your 1 yr old's naptimes and bedtime?

DD1 was an odd napper. She only took one nap a day from the time she was 3 or 4 months old but it was 3-4 hours long and then she would sleep 12+ hours a night. DD2 started taking one nap a day at 11 months. At that point she was still getting up 2-4 time a night to nurse so she would nap from about 11:00-2:00 and then go to bed around 7. Now at 18 months she naps from about 1:00-4:00 and goes to bed between 7:30 and 8 and sleeps until 8ish in the morning.
