current nap times

How are your LOs sleeping these days?  DD has suddenly changed to a later nap (she'll stay up for an hour playing/talking in her crib, then sleep for an hour and a half) and (probably as a result) a slightly later bedtime and a slightly later wake up.  The night sleep/wake up has only shifted by about 30 min, but her naps have suddenly moved back from a reliable start of 12-12:30 to now 1:30-2!!  It was 12-12:30 for as long as I can remember so I wonder if this 1:30-2 nap start is a just phase or a normal move to a later nap time?  What time do your LOs nap?  Has it been consistent for awhile or have they recently shifted later too?

Re: current nap times

  • Jonah wakes up in the morning between 9 and 9:30. His nap is at 2 and he sleeps for 2-3 hours and bedtime is at 9:45.
    We have a late bedtime because I like to sleep in in the morning. I'm going to start moving it to 8pm though because now that DH is home we need some time away from the kids at night.
    When we move that bedtime, I'm going to move his nap to 1pm.

    DD2 wakes up at 7am, naps from 12-3p, and goes to bed at 8p.  Her sleep habits have been consistent for a while now.

  • Still doing an 11/12 nap time for about 2.5 hrs. He wakes up at 7ish.
    His sitter doesn't do late naps so we'll see what happens.

  • DS1 wakes between 6:30 and 7.  He used to nap at 11:30, but in the past week, he has pushed it back by about an hour, so now he naps about 12:30 for 1.5 hours.  Then bedtime is 8.

    DS is waking up between 7/7:30am. He goes down for a nap between 12:30-1:30pm. I'm still rocking him to sleep for naps. I'm scared to screw naps up. I don't let him sleep past 3:30pm(it messes up dinner & nighttime routine if he sleeps later). Bedtime starts at 8pm. We read stories & cuddle & rock until drowsy(8:30ish). After we lay him in the crib, actual fall asleep time varies...sometimes he's right out at 8:30, other times he's awake & playing in the crib until 9:30.

    This has been our new "normal" for the past month or so.

  • wow, sounds a lot like my son. about a month ago he started fighting naps. he wasn't napping for 3-4 straight days and his schedule was very weird. he'd go to bed at 6 the night he skipped his nap and sleep till 8:30, then next day he'd take a nap, go to bed closer to 7, wake up at 6:30 and fight nap, etc.

    finally this past week i started putting him down later so now he wakes up around 6:30, naps between 12:30 and 1:30 for 1.5-2 hours and goes to bed around 7. he's napped the past 6-7 days so i'm hoping this is the new normal.

  • DD wakes up around 7, nap is between 12-12:30 for 3 hours. Bedtime is between 8:15-8:30. I wish her bedtime was earlier, but oh well. I'll take the three hour nap.

  • Wake up is normally around 8:00; nap time really needs to be around 11:00 but she fights it until 3:00 usually; wake up around 5 and stays up at night until 9:30. 

    I have tried altering this schedule, but with no success.

    Ours is very similar. Nap time is generally 1130-1:30 but can flex up to 30/45 min

  • I guess I should add - FWIW, DD's bedtime/wakeup had been 7:30pm/7-7:30am forever, too (just like her nap had been pretty solid).  But last week, she'd still go down around 7:30 but would stay up til 8, 8:30 even 9 sometimes I'd hear talking!  (I don't know if she went to sleep and woke up, or was up the whole time)  Then her wake up would be anywhere from normal 7am to 8:30am.  

    The last couple of days she seems to be a little bit back on track with all of her sleep/wake times (today nap started at noon!  Aaah!) so I'm going to guess it was just a crazy week and not that there is some sleep shift that goes on around this age.  :)

    Thanks for sharing, ladies!
