Just wondering how many naps other one year olds are having, awake times and bedtimes please? Seem to be struggling to get it right at the moment, DD either ends up overtired or not tired enough when I try to get her to sleep.

DD did about 45 mins at 9am and 90 mins at 1pm at this age.

Hi thank you for reply. Can I just ask what time your DD got up in the morning to have her morning nap at 9?

12 month old has recently dropped morning nap so sleeping 12-2 or 1-3 depending on how late I can keep her awake some days she's ready for a nap at 11 so I do a quick and early lunch sometimes she's still raring to go at 1pm

My 15 month old gets up at 8:30, has a nap anytime from 11:30-2 depending on what we are doing it's usually for 1hr and a half.
He goes to bed at 8ish.
He was still having 2 naps until 13 months then only wanted 1.

So it seems it's around this age they move from 2 to 1 naps? I think that is what is happening but dd seems to tired to wait until after lunch but not quite tired enough for her morning nap.

It may be that you have to do lunch early for a few days but it soon gets better and they can cope a bit longer

My ds gets up at 7/7.30, has a nap at 11.45-1 and then goes to bed at 8.15. He was dificult to nap if I left it til after lunch so I moved it to the morning and he was perfect and lasts til bed time fine.

Ds2 (19 mos) has 2 hours ish usually from 12-1 ish to 2-3 ish. Is at a cm 2 days a week where he only naps around an hour or less, so I think some home days he needs a bit longer. This has been the pattern since he dropped his morning nap & long may it continue!

Forgot to say, in bed around 7pm and up around 7pm.

My ds is 1 this week. He dropped his morning nap a few weeks ago.

So now he wakes around 6.30am /7am

He naps from around 12pm-2pm on nursery days. Usually the same at home but sometimes slightly earlier at home - today was 11am to 1pm but he'd eaten a big breakfast.

He goes to bed between 6.30pm and 7 pm.

It took him a week or so to get used to one nap - he wasn't tired enough for a morning nap but seemed over tired by lunch time and in the evening.

Thankfully he's settled down now and I'm finding one nap much easier as he'll go in the cot now whereas he never would before so I had to take him out for a long walk.

I must have walked bloody miles for monthsgrin

DS is 10 months. He generally wakes around 7am. Nap around 9am between 20 mins and an hour. Nap after lunch between 1-2pm for around 90 mins. Bath and bed at 630, and he's just started sleeping through.

DD is 12 months. She's usually up between 6.30 and 7, naps 9.30-10 and then usually 1-2 ish. I'm hoping she'll drop her morning nap soon as it makes it difficult to get out and do things, but at the moment she'll still too tired to wait until lunch (she still wakes once or twice in the night). She goes to bed at around 7.30pm.

Could you make lunch extra early for a few weeks eg. 11am? Then gradually push back every few days until it's more like 12?I hate nap transitions.

mine (12m) is awake at 6/6.30, naps around 9 for 45 mins (I wake her after that) then at 1245-1 for 1-2 hours. bed about 1845. I can't see her dropping the morning nap for a while yet
