Down to 2 naps yet?

Any of your LOs transitioned from 3 naps/day to 2 naps?  I read that some babies will start cutting down to 2 naps by 6 months?

If so, did your LO's overnight sleep duration and the naps duration change (longer/shorter)?  What about awake time?

How many hours of overnight sleep and how long are the 2 naps?

--------------------------------

 I can't imagine DS going down to 2 naps anytime soon (not that I'm rushing).  He's a super early riser (5-5:30a) so he takes his first nap by 8am!  He's usually down for his second nap by 12noon, so he definitely needs a third nap around 4pm.  He only sleeps 9.5-10 hours at night... really hoping he can sleep longer/later but he wakes up at 5:15am happy as a clam and stay awake for 2.5 hours.  [He naps for a total of 4-4.5 hours so he sleeps 14hrs/day on average.]

I can't foresee how he will transition to 2 naps unless he sleeps longer/later overnight???

Re: Down to 2 naps yet?

  • R is sort of on 2 naps...depends on the day, he's up at least 2 hrs between if not 2 1/2, if he does two really good naps 2-3 hrs that will be it.  Otherwise he sometimes still gets a 3rd if one is not so good.

  • Emily is still very inconsistent- sometimes 2 naps, sometimes 3. Duration varies from 45 minutes to 2 hours. Duration and number of naps, or lack there of on some days, has no bearing on her sleep at night.

    Overnight is 11-12 hours 6;30-7pm to 6:30-7am) with 3ish "wake ups" to nurse.

  • Lucy has been down to 2 naps for a while... rarely she will take 3 but that's usually when we're out and about and her schedule gets messed up. She gets up anywhere between 8am-11am, then naps from 10 or 11 til 12 or 1. Then naps from 3 or 4 (or 5 if she slept in) until 5 or 6... bed between 8 and 9:30 depending on how big of a crankypants she is..

    ETA: so 12-14 hrs overnight and two 1-2.5 hour naps during the day

  • O has been getting rid of her 3rd nap recently. She still needs it though but fights it. When she doesn't take that 3rd nap, she's miserable. And getting rid of that last nap has done nothing to her night time sleep, she still gets up once around the same time.

  • OP- That is exactly how our day is!  He's an early riser....which I hate!  But always down for his first nap by 8.  I can't see him doing 2 naps for a while.  Sometimes he even needs a 4th cat nap (maybe like 15 minutes).  I will sure be glad when he cuts a nap though because when we go places, I hate having to get him back home before he melts down for a nap!

  • No, absolutely not haha. He would fall into little pieces of baby if he only had 2 naps. Most days are 3 and some days 4.

  • DS is definitely already 'weaning' himself to two naps per day.  He wakes-up around 6 am, then an am-nap around 8:30/9, a second around 1 pm, and then acts like he needs or wants a third nap around 5 pm, however.  The last week, consistently, he hasn't actually fallen asleep with the third nap.  It's driving me crazy, but at the same time, it makes his bedtime, just before 7 pm, pretty reliable.  So I'm happy for that.  He is sleeping slightly longer into the night -- about 11 or 12 midnight-ish.  His longest stint was to 3:30 am, but that only happened once.  After his first night-wake, he eats and falls back asleep, but it depends on how much he eats.  Sometimes he's up again right away, and a few times he's made it another four hours, or so.  

    To summarize: We're in the middle of change.

  • Ev has anywhere from 2 to 3 naps a day. We were doing a schedule of up for 2 hours, then nap, up for 3 hours then nap, and then bed after being up for 4 hours, but we decided to push Ev's bed time back an hour and there is no way he can make it that long. So he USUALLY takes 3 naps. Two decent naps, and one cat nap while we take a walk around 4-5. However, days like yesterday, he had 2 very good naps, and made it until bed time. I just don't allow him to be up longer than 4 hours at the end of the day.

  • DD usually takes 4 short naps but 2 of those are in the car driving DS to or from school. She is still waking every 3 hrs or less at night and I think she needs more during the day.

    I was thinking the same thing.  My 2 year old niece sleeps 11 hours straight at night and takes a 2.5 hour nap during the day.  My 7 month old sleeps 8 hours at night and takes 1 45 minute nap.  I've given up on any sort of correlation between ages and kids....
