This is great! Thanks everyone. Froggie- interesting table-I have never seen this before.

It was just something I came across when I was trying to figure out if DD was sleeping enough for her age, not sure how accurate / scientific it is!

Baby is19 months, she naps between 2 and 3 hours a day (very occasionally she will map 4 hours - that is only when she has had a really bad night - I nap with her on those days!). She doesn't sleep through - we had to wake her at regular intervals up until 4 months old to feed her (medical advice) and then something clicked and she started waking of her own accord and still does now.
