I don't have any similar age baby friend mums to compare notes with (I know all babies are different but I'm interested). I have a some who are younger and some thet are much older so not really much help.
Basically this is what my baby does,
Please share your examples if you want.
She has 2 naps at around 8.30-9 and 1-1.30 both for an hour. At the moment I've just started back to work so she won't settle at all on her own! She cries so much If I put her down which she used to be fine with so now I have to cuddle her and she usually ends up in my bed at night.
Going to nursery has messed it all up! Anyway she has 3 bottles a day of about 7/8 oz. I wonder how to go about changing to cows milk and if still bottles or cup, but I guess I will see HV ? On previous attempts of drinking milk in cup she was not interested.
Our bottle teats are size 2.
Anything else you want to share then please do!

At the moment, pulling a broken hanger put of the bin

Otherwise we put him to bed at 8pm after a bottle of milk
He wakes at 7.30 and washed and changed - breakfast and drink
Plays etc and dinner at 12 then nap for an hour

That's the only nap he takes unless he falls asleep on a car journey

He is cruising around furniture - has about ten words but not walking

(14 months) five teeth

Sorry - we give him three bottles of about seven ounces of normal milk - trying to move onto a beaker (he will take a beaker) but still looks out for bottles

I was back to work at five months but on maternity leave again

He eats a good dinner at 12 and something like cheese, fruit and a pancake for evening meal

In between, kiwi chopped up or berries or plain biscuit

I look after a 12 month old - Dc can walk independently (has for a while), uses makaton, and has several "words" Dc has 8 teeth. Dc loves chatting, singing (knows actions to favourite songs) and playing with friends. Fave toys at the moment are a toy pram, a special soft toy, stacking tower and tomy eggs.

Basic routine of breakfast at 7, lunch at 12, dinner at 445. Sleeps for 2 hours after lunch 1-3. Should realistically sleep through the night.

We don't do bottles anymore drinks normal milk out of a lided beaker at bedtime but drinks during the day out of a tommy tippee cup minus the lid. Feeds self using cutlery.

My 15mo daughter is a bit of a late developer. She is crawling and can stand with help but not walking. She self weaned off the breast at 13 months and now has 2 Tommy Tippee beakers of cows milk a day. Loves her sleep and we are trying to move to one nap a day after lunch, sleeps 12-13 hours at night. Loves books, balls and soft toys. Kisses everything, waves, points and smiles constantly. Why don't you join a baby group, local play group or something like Jiggy Wrigglers to meet mums with similar aged kids?

My DS also a bit of a late developer- Just turned 1 and has only just started to crawl. He doesnt stand unless supported and doesnt cruise. He says some 'words' but I dont think he is connecting words with meaning yet, apart from bye bye. He claps, waves and points, has 2 7oz bottles of cows milk a day and other than that drinks (spills) water from a cup during the day. He eats three good sized meals a day and is pretty good at feeding himself. He loves to dance sitting down to music (its pretty funny to watch) and has two naps a day. The first from 8-9 and the second 12-1.30 but this can vary a bit day to day. He sleeps from 6.30pm-6am most nights.
