How long does your toddler sleep at night?

Evan slept in until 11:45 yesterday. And he is just starting to stir now (at 11ish)...DH is worried about him...but I think that he just goes to bed late but his consecutive hours are normal. He averages 13hrs a night - From about 9:30 - 10:30...but sometimes it's more. He goes to bed at 9 but usually talks/plays/sings until 9:30 or so. His average nap is 1.5-2hrs.

What about your LOs?

    Not as much as I'd like, but I guess still within the normal range. He goes to sleep between 8 and 8:30, then is awake by 6:30. If we're lucky he'll sleep until 7 on weekends. Putting him to bed later will not get him to sleep later, either. He is usually out cold as soon as we turn the lights off. He sleeps 2-2.5 hrs at daycare, 1.5-2.5 hours for us on the weekends.
  • um, first of all... I'm so jealous that he sleeps till 11! No matter how late Evan goes to bed, he will NOT sleep in! It's actually worse if he goes to bed late... like last night he was up about 2 hours later than usual, and was up at 6am!

    His normal nights sleep is 7-7 though. Sometimes 7:30 if I'm lucky! And his nap is around 2 hours, but it's all over the place right now since we just went down to 1 nap a day.

  • Gretchen sleeps from 7/7:30-7/7:30 and almost never naps longer than 50 minutes, it's been like this for a while now but she's never been a superstar sleeper.

  • On the weekends when we don't have to wake Justin up for work he usually sleeps from about 8:00pm until 7:30 or so.  He usually wakes up about 6:00 (ish) and will ask for his binkie and then go back to sleep for a while longer.  Your little guy is a great sleeper!!

  • Aidan (15 months) goes down at 7PM every night -- at least, we try to put him down at the same time every day. It can vary but for the most part, we're pretty strict with this rule. He's used to it anyway & starts rubbing his eyes right around that time. He'll usually sleep until we wake him up - which is a little after 6AM. I have to be to work by 7. But on my days off, he'll sleep in 'til around 8:30 or so if I let him. I think once he slept 'til about 9. So, for the most part it's 7-6.

    I've tried putting him down earlier & it doesn't work. I think once we got him to go down at 6:30 & that's b/c he was sick.

     As far as naps go... the usual is 2 hours at home. A hour - an hour & a 1/2 at the sitters. He has slept for 3 hours hear & there, but not often.

  • Reed goes to bed between 7:30-8PM and sleeps until about 7 am.  Sometimes gets up earlier and sometimes sleeps until almost 8.  He has NEVER slept past 8am.  He takes about a 3 hour nap from 1-4PM everyday though.  



  • Not that much! Eve goes to bed to bed like 9:30-10.. and the latest she EVER sleeps anymore is like 8:30.. its usually closer to 8..and sometimes its 6 or 7!

  • he sleeps about 11 hours at night.  7:30pm-6:30am.  he naps for 1 1/2 - 2 hours a day
  • She goes from about 8:30pm to 8:30am, although sometimes she'll wake up earlier than that, and takes a 2 hour nap.

    Does he do this all the time, or just lately?  Maybe it's a growth spurt? 

  • He used to wake up at about 8:30 every day no matter what time he went to bed. He would catch up during his nap if he needed to. But it seemed to have pushed back to 9 and now jumped to 10/11 within the past 3 weeks. If he wakes up earlier (if DH is too loud getting ready for work, etc.) - he will take a longer nap. So it could be a slow spurt I guess. My mom said all of us always needed a lot of sleep when we were younger...but DH doesn't buy it.

    I also point out to him that it isn't like Evan is sluggish during the day or anything...he's active and seems totally normal physically.

    I guess we'll ask the ped - Leah has an appt next week.

  • Charlie sleeps 9pm-6am & takes a 2 or 3 hour nap (only an hour if he's @ dc)
