my ds loves his sleep. he would sleep 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon if i let him and stil be i bed by 7.30! I have recently cut his afternoon sleep to 45mins as he has started waking around 5.30 which seems to have helped alot! how much do your toddlers sleep?

When my ds was that age he used to sleep up to two hours in the afternoon just after lunch (if I remember correctly)

My dd is almost 13 months and doesn't love her sleep LOL (Although she's asleep now )

She normally doesn't sleep in the morning though and just has a nap for up to 2 hours after lunch. Then she won't go to bed until 9pm....

My DS goes to bed at 7/7.30 and wakes at 5am (sometimes was 6am, which felt like a lie-in!), he goes down for a nap at about 9-10am for 2 hours and then thats trying desperately to get him back into waking at 7am!

my ds does sleep alot but he doesn't sit down from the minute he wakes up! he is everywhere!

my ds 14mo sleeps up to 2.5 hours after nursery and lunch, goes to bed at 7ish and wakes at 6ish. Though on the weekends he is ready for his 2 hr nap by 11am.

Oh Lizzylou I am in your position.
My dd is nearly 14 months, she naps for 2 hours ish around luchtime and then sleeps from 7.30pm until 6/6.30am.
I have been trying to get her to sleep later and it seemed to be working (giving her milk and lying her back down) but has totally stopped working! She woke up 6.30am on Sun, 6.15am yesterday and 6am today and when I tried to put her back down she screamed and screamed! Ahhhhhh!

I think she sleeps fairly well, just likes the early morning far more than I!

Weesaidie...I am saving up for eyebag removal and botox!!!! Have you a good eyecream??
I have aged so much these past few months and am sick of waving at the bloomin milkman in the mornings!!!
It wouldn't be so bad but when DS is awake at 5am (or, a few times 4.30!!!) he is full of beans and there is no way he will go back to sleep...he runs around like a maniac!!!

Awwww Lizzylou... 4!! 5!! You poor poor thing!

I met an old school friend last year who had a 3.5 yr old (single dad) and he told me that when staying with him she had slept in til 12pm! I was so excited at the thought of lie-ins only a few long years away... but then I went round to his one evening after being at the pub (about 11.30pm) and she was still up lying on the sofa watching a scoobie-do video! No wonder the poor thing slept in.

The whole scene terrified me in a way. Not because she up late but because he is a bit of a crazy party boy and a number of his rather insane friends were there, not a particularly good environment for a 3 yr old!

Anyway, long story for a short question... when will they sleep late?? Or at least later!

DS is 13 months and he has a 1.5 hour nap from about 11-12.30. He goes to bed at about 7 and sleeps untill about 6.30-7.

Ds woke at 4.30am the other morning - but I just treated it like a night time waking and went in with no lights (has blackout curtains) and gave him a little cuddle and some water (he has a cough) and then put him back down and (luckily) he went back to sleep.
I think if they have too early a nap it tags onto their nighttime sleep. Maybe push Lizzylou ds nap back by 10 mins each morning so it's nearer 11am befoer he naps?

loulabelle222 Tue 31-May-05 14:26:16

cor my ds does sleep alot!

Lizzylou Tue 31-May-05 14:37:43

Tracey K, Ds sleeps from about (it changes!) 9.30-1130am, on average, sorry, my post wasn't clear!

TracyK Tue 31-May-05 16:17:54

Lizzylou - I meant for you to try and get him to nap 11-1 eventually by moving it from 9.30am onwards by 10mins each day.

Lizzylou Tue 31-May-05 16:19:10

Sorry, having a thick moment, obviously!!!
I will try anything!

At 13mths DS has half an hour either just before or just after lunch. Then 6.30pm - 8am at night. At 17mths he is exactly the same.

TracyK Tue 31-May-05 16:34:21

On the odd occasion that ds has shorter naps during the day - I often think that he'll sleep later the next morning - but no! 6 am on the dot usually. I'd rather have 2 hours to myself during the day, earlyish to bed at night and an early rise. It means we can have a nice relaxed 'get ready for work/nursery/breakfast' time and not be rushing around like maniacs.

weesaidie Tue 31-May-05 16:57:10

Wow! Oooggs! That is my dream child you have right there!

Maybe I should try putting my wee madam to bed earlier!

weesaidie - for the first 12 months we were up at least 4 times a night and he still only slept half an hour during the day. Milk at 4am then up at 6am for the rest of the day. I was shattered then suddenly at 12 months it clicked and now he is a great night time sleeper.

Loulabelle, my ds is the same age and sleeps from 9-12 in the morning and then 2-4 in the afternoon and then sleeps from 6.30pm-6.30am. Apart from the main sleep I have to wake him up, he doesn't wake up himself after that long. I do worry that he's getting too much sleep, but he's so grumpy without it and starts rubbing his eyes and crying after about more than 2 hours of being awak. However, dd is older and so on the days his routine has to be broken to take her places he seems okayish as he can't sleep in his pram but seems to enjoy looking around while relaxing. However, if we are at home where he has lots of time to crawl about and play, it seems to exhaust him very quickly.

mines grumpy without his sleep. he had is mmr jab today and dp has just taken him for a ride in the car as he just won't settle!

weesaidie Wed 01-Jun-05 20:49:19

Oooggs - I guess you deserve your good sleeper then!

My dd has been a right pain in the a**e this week. Waking up earlier and earlier, it was 5.30am this morning... she also seems to be napping a lot less. Most confusing.

I am getting more than a little worried about it as I am pretty tired but hope it is just a phase!
