Re: How many hrs. of sleep

My son was born 3-13-07 and has doubled up on his nap time in the last week and is completely sleeping through the night (VERY unusal). I, too, am not complaining. I think theyre supposed to get 11-13hrs/day..? My son is sleeping 13-15hrs......

I'm sensing one tired mama!!!

Typically my 2 year old [26 months] takes one 1-2 hour nap a day and then goes down by 8pm and is up at 6am. He generally STTN.

I am noticing though that since he's started on his second year molars that he is even more sleepy.

I'm not sure what the "recommended" amount of sleep time is.

DD goes to bed between 8/8:30 and wakes up by herself at 7 am. When she naps, it is 2 1/2 to 3 hours. But some days she just will not nap.

my 25 month old sleeps about 11-12 hours at night (7:30 pm-6:30ish am) and she'll nap for at least 2-3 hours every afternoon.

i think children in general need at least 12 hours of sleep, divided between night time and naps.

My kids get a 2-3 hour nap in the after noon, and sleep from about 9-6, so they get about 11-12 hours of sleep a day.
