DS is 19m now but at 11m he was having two naps a day of either 40 mins or 1h20, usually about 3.5 hours after getting up. So sample routine would be:

6:30 awake;
10:00 nap;
11:20 awake;
15:00 nap;
15:40 awake;
19:00 bed for the night.

He started to move towards one nap at about 14m - he started to last until 11 or later before needing to go down, and that nap became routinely longer, so at least 1h30 and sometimes up to 2h30.

Ds is one (only just) so a bit older but he has two naps, one at around 10.30 and one at around 3- both for around an hour. He seems to get really tired by 10-10.30 so I think it might be a while before he's ready to move to one nap.

Mine always has 2-3. He's asleep now having been up at 6. He was knackered by 8 and fell asleep on nursery run at 8.30. I'm hoping he will go for 1.5h. Then he'll be tired again by 3. For 1-1.5h nap again.

Problem is he sometimes falls asleep on nursery run in eve and so catnaps from 5-5.30 which means he's late to bed (9 pm). Otherwise he goes down at 7.30 but wakes again at 8.30 and screams til 9 or later!

He's a bad sleeper and needs his daytime rest so he's not grumpy but wakes in the night, then needs to catch up by day. Vicious circle!

What about yours OP?

One, but he has an older. Brother so I like them to take a rest together, so I have half hour peace! My eldest was having two naps until around 18 months. 10am and 2pm

My almost 11 month old is still having two, but the first one is getting later, it seems.

Terrified - can I ask if you "forced" the change to one nap? Or did it just happen earlier with your second child? Currently my two have a nap at the same time (after lunch), but it would be so much easier to get things done if I didn't have to worry about being home for a morning nap for my little girl. (Sorry to hijack your thread, OP).

Its all over the place at the minute. Usually one morning and one afternoon. Then sometimes (recently) he will skip a morning nap, or just go later like say 11:30/12, then this sometimes cancels out an afternoon nap and he then gets tired by 5:30.

The past two days he's napped

Yesterday:
11am nap
12noon I had to wake on the preschool run
3:20 nap
3:50 I had to wake to put in car seat.
9pm bed
9:45pm awake, and was every two hours as teething.

Today, nap at 10:30-12:30ish
Nap at 3:30-1hr ish
Nearly ready for bed but unsure what time he'll go.

He's a very happy and content baby, but I think his teething and the fact we always seem to have to be somewhere for 4 & 2.5yo disrupts naps.

He's very active, eats well most days, and still loves nursing...

The past two months he's been stirring or feeding every two hours in the night.

How do yours sleep at night, Amf how do changes in naps alter this?
