Babies: 3 - 6 Months

How long between naps

and how old??  I'm still trying to figure DD out.  She used to be up 1 1/2 hours then down for a nap on schedule.  She doesn't show signs of being tired.  After about 2 hours she will yawn if I'm swing or rocking her but I'm just afraid to go more than 2 hours so I try then and it usually works.  DD is 20 weeks old.

Re: How long between naps

  • Like 2-3 hours now at almost 14 weeks. He is a day time trooper.

  • our LO can go 2-3 hours. She's almmosstt about to drop that last nap-yesterday I think she just took 2 naps, but went to bed earlier than normal because she couldn't last.  Yesterday i think it was

    7 am -wake up

    915-nap, fought it pretty hard though

    11-wake up

    1:45/2 (We weren't home so my dad and step mom put her down)-nap, they said she didn't fight it

    4-wake up

    6:45/7-down for bed

    she woke up around 630 today like normal

    she's 19 weeks.  i just watch her-she tends to gaze off. she can be yawing for 30 minutes before I put her down, so that's never reliable

  • DD is 4 months and she struggles if she goes beyond 2 hours in the day.  She has hit that phase where she doesn't want to miss anything by falling asleep so she really fights her naps.  She STTN 10-11 hours.
  • I am working on tracking it, but it seems like she goes for about 2 hours. I was putting her down at 730, but last night it worked out to go down at 630 and the naps today have been much easier. I am sad since 630 really means no ability to do anything in the evening with LO.

  • 4 and a half months and about two hours between naps.

    Not quit as long if he doesn't get a long enough nap. It averages out to about 3 or 4 a day.

    DD is 4 months and is awake 2hrs between naps. Doesn't matter if the nap was 45 mins or 2 hours. 99 of the time she only naps for 45 mins.

    ETA: that should read 99 percent.

  • DS2 can only go, at most, 2 hours between naps. Anything more than that and he is Mr. Crankypants. Usually it is more like 1.5 hours.

    She goes 1.5hours max between naps.  She does not fight them at all.  A kiss on the forehead is enough to cue her to pass out within seconds most naps.  In the early morning she goes 30-45min then is back down for a nap (typically a 2-3 hr nap).

    The rest of the day her naps range anywhere from 45min to 3hrs.  She does not sleep through the night but sleeps 6:30pm-6:30am (with a couple quick feeds). It is not uncommon for her to sleep a total of about 18hrs a day if we are home all day.  If out and about she'll nap less due to interruptions.


  • anywhere from 1.5 hours to 3. One day she was awake 4 hours straight because she wasn't fussy at daycare. she STTN that night. I try to put her down when I think she might be tired. if it's been two hours, I'll rock her and she's out within a minute. If she's super tired she will fall asleep whereever she is.
