Yet another sleep post! :)

I know that sleep and naps are discussed all the time so I apologize, but I have a more specific question I think...

How long does your LO go between naps? I try to just follow her sleep cues, but she starts rubbing her eyes and yawning after only an hour, sometimes even less. She will go to sleep fairly easy at that point but if I wait and miss my window...it's a big mess.

I feel like that's not very long, and everything I read says they should be able to go at least 2 hours at this age (around 3 months)

I know every baby is different, but what do you think? Are her naps too short? Not getting enough sleep at night? Her naps range from 45 mins - 2 hrs and she still gets up 2 or 3 times at night lately.

Thanks!

    Max an hour. He will stay awake longer but then is overtired and hard to put down for naps. Following his cues, 50 min-1 hour and that includes feeding.

    Our LO is up about 1 to 1.5hrs then down for a nap ranging from 45min to 2 hrs depending on the day......yours sounds pretty normal to me.

    I've been wondering the exact same thing. He is usually ready for a nap after an hour and I feel like all day is spent trying to get him to nap. It would help if he slept longer than 30-45 minutes I think. Anyone know how to help him sleep longer?!?

    She's normally up for about two hours between naps. Longer after her long nap...maybe 3-4 hours. She sleeps 11-12 hours at night. Every baby is different. Some love their sleep and some don't.

    Wow, ok I'll keep following her lead then! Thanks!

    @kelseyhh the only way I can her her to take a long nap is in her swing (2 or 3 hrs). I try to limit that to once a day and the rest are only 45 mins or an hour.

    Baby A will go anywhere from 30 min to 1hour to 2 hours to 3.5 hours between naps. And her naps range in length as well. I am following her lead right now. She put herself on a schedule but changed it completely when I got used to it.
