Default How much does your baby sleep during the day? – 12-23-2008, 02:31 PM

My daughter is now 5 months old and she generally takes about 2-3 naps during the day, totalling 3-4 hours in all. I’ve noticed that sometimes at night she won’t want to go to bed if she has slept more than usual during the day. I realize that all babies differ as far as how much sleep they need and whether that interferes with their nighttime sleep but I am just curious how many naps your baby takes and for how long.My 15 month old takes one 2-3 hour nap per day and has no problem sleeping at night.Thanks in advance.

All babies are different. Mine just started to sleep through the night because we"ferberized"her. Just a nice way of saying I stopped getting her in the middle of the night. She was waking up twice once at 12am then again at 3:30am then up at 7am, this went on for 7 months until just last week. It took three nights of her crying for about 10-15 minutes and she went back to sleep. She naps at 10 am and again around 2 or 3pm both times for an hour. I will wake her up if she sleeps longer than that on her last nap because she won’t want to go to bed at 8pm if she sleeps longer than that.

one nap a day for about 2-3 hours is great. mine is just over 7 months old and she wakes up around 6 or 7 and takes her nap around 11:00. that way when she wakes up at about 1:00-1:30 she has time to get worn out by the time she has to go to sleep… which is around 7:00.i have followed that schedule every day now. it seems to work out great!

Eventually your child will stop napping and start doing all of his sleeping at night. Preschoolers and young elementary school students still need up to ten or 11 hours of sleep a night, but that amount will gradually diminish. By the time he’s a teenager, your child will need only about nine or ten hours of shut-eye per night.

It all depends on the baby. When the baby is active during daytime, chances are, he will be sleeping the whole night. They usually just wake up in the middle of the night looking for milk. If and when a baby sleeps the whole day, expect an active nighttime. The technique then is to balance.

Oh, I think my baby usually takes 2 naps during the day. She’s 6 months old now. Usually each nap is 2-3 hours long. She still gets up in the middle of the night, but we’re about ready to put an end to that . . . we tire quickly of sleepless nights and endless crying.
