is this too much sleep for a 2yo?

Dd has in the last couple of months started sleeping for a looong time! She goes to bed between 7.30 and 8pm and sleeps until 9am, sometimes later! Sometimes it seems like if me or dp didn't wake her she would just sleep for ages and ages. She also has a nap in the afternoon, usually between 1 - 1.5 hours. Is this normal or do I need to start waking her earlier?

DD used to do this, and even now, aged 9, her natural sleep cycle is still about 12 hours. In the holidays she regularly sleeps from 8pm til 9am.

As a 2 year old she would go to sleep at 7pm, wake up at 9am and still have a 2 hour sleep in the day.

Just enjoy it!

Thanks for the reassurance, I was hoping it was normal. She's been a good sleeper for a while now but she's just never slept this long before! I'm beginning to think it might be to do with our easy mornings, dp works late shifts most days and I work pt in afternoons so no rush in morning to get out of the house. Might have to make more effort to get up early myself... hmmm.

enjoy it! no need to rush about if you dont have to!
