My LO typically takes 3 to 4 naps a day. They are not usually longer than an hour. If he does nap longer than an hour it is during his first nap of the day. I've had a very awake baby since birth. He came out and opened his eyes and he hardly closes them lol.
He also fights his sleep pretty badly during the day. Is this typical? He's been doing it since he was about 8 weeks old.
Before his crazy sleep changes and general changes all around. He was napping 2-3 hours after waking up for the day. Sleeping for about 3 hours average. So basically if he woke up at 9am (which he was before.) He wouldn't nap until 11am, then back down around 2:30... then back down around 7:30.. then he would have a mini nap at that time and wake up at 9pm, and went to sleep for the night around 11pm or midnight.
Right now, he sleeps for a maximum of 45 minutes now, every three hours or so. If I try to put him down before those three hours.. he fights me for that duration. If I put him down later than 3 hours, he gets really irritable and sleeps even less. At night he sleeps a maximum of 2 hours at a time now.
Lhyacinth888:Mine vary but on average baby gets up at 9. First nap around 10:30 for about an hour. Second nap at 1 which is usually her longer one about two and a half hours. Another one around 5 or 6 depending on how long the nap before was. Next nap around 7 or 8. Then bed around 9 or 10. I will probably just eventually make her bedtime 7 or 8 and cut that nap out.

Can you tell me how your baby sleeps till 9?? Lol I thought DS was a great sleeper, but 9 would be awesome!!
A good day is: up by 7:30ish. Nap for an hour at 9:30, 1, 3, 5. (Give or take an hour) Sometimes if one nap is missed he'll do a 2.5 hour nap for one of those. That's a really good day....like today.
Sometimes he'll be up for five hours, then will take one looooong nap
He takes naps after being awake for 90 minutes to two hours throughout the day. the naps usually last 30min to one hour with one long one around mid day so our schedule looks like this:
7:30 am get up
9:30 first nap
12noon long nap - 2 hours
4:00 pm nap
then he is usually up until around 7:30 when we start his bath time and bedtime routine, he goes down at 8pm.
