My 11 month old daughter sleeps through the night from usually 7.30pm til about 8.30 am. she also has a morning nap usually of about 1 - 1/2 hours and an afternoon sleep of 2-3 hours. A total of 16 - 17 1/2 hours so she's only awake for about 7 -8 hours a day. In all other ways she is a happy active child she eats very well and has just started crawling (a little later than her counterparts) which has meant she now sleeps more than she did 2 months ago as she seems to get very tired. I know they say most babies her age sleep an average of 12 - 13 hours but she sleeps much more than that. should I be worried or should I just cheer hooray because she sleeps so well and I get free time!!!!!

Just enjoy it, my DD was the same and has only recently stopped having a lunchtime nap. She was 5 in April. DS still sleeps 2 - 3 hours at lunchtime, if I let him. He is 3.

My dd2 continued having daytime naps even after she started school . At least once a week I would pick her up from the headmistresses couch in the office! Luckily the school was fantastic and treated the whole thing as sweet.
She grew out of it eventually but will still sleep moreorless when she wants to during the day - she's now 11....she just loves her sleep I suppose!
