How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My baby has been waking up a lot during the night lately, so it's hard to figure out how much sleep he's actually getting (never mind how much I'm getting). How much sleep do kids this age need?

The Bump Expert As a general rule, toddlers need an average of thirteen hours of sleep a day -- but that includes both nighttime sleep and daytime naps. Does your baby seem especially cranky? Do you wake him up every morning instead of him waking you? Then there’s a chance he’s sleep-deprived, in which case a healthy bedtime routine often helps.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

both of my boys aged 3 1/2 and 19 months never slept more than 10 hours in a 24 hour span and they are both healthy and very energetic. As long as your child is active and alert he is probaly getting enough sleep.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

I have a 16 month old. He sleeps 10-12 hours per night and usually takes one 2 hour nap during the day or two 1-1.5 hour naps. So he gets anywhere between 12 and 15 hours of sleep per day. But he went through a phase, after he started sleeping through the night, and he started waking up every night again. I started giving him a snack a little before bed to make sure his belly was full and he started, again, sleeping all through the night.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

I have a 13 month old and he has always been a really good sleeper! He did have a few months earlier on that he was waking up in the middle of the night so I could nurse him. But he is sleeping through the night and he is so cute when he gets tired at night! He starts rubbing his eyes and just wants to cuddle. Best part of my day!!!!

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My 13 month old son sleeps 11 hours per night and then takes a 1.5 hour nap in the morning and another 1 hour to 2 hour nap in the afternoon. He's been such a good sleeper since 6 months of age as long as we stick to his routine.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My toddler gets 12-12.5 hours a night, and then naps between 1 and 2 hours a day, sometimes 3. He averages around 13.5 hours a day. as long as he wakes up with a smile I know he is getting enough. If he wakes up cranky, I put him to bed 15 minutes early that night to try catch up on the sleep.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

I reseacrhed and it says toddlers need an average of thirteen hours of sleep a day, but that includes both nighttime sleep and daytime naps. My 14 month old sleeps 10 hours at night (8pm to 6am). He still gets a morning bottle, so I give him his bottle and he goes back down until 7:00 or 7:30am. He takes two 1 to 1 1/2 hour naps a day. He is a very happy baby!

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My daughter is 18 months today, and sleeps about 11 hours at night and 1 to 2 hours after lunch. However I let her call out to me when she is ready to get up in the morning. If I try to wake her a little earlier than normal she is cranky for a while!

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My baby is 13 months old when we took him on vacation.We were staying at one of the Hotels downtown denver.And i don't know maybe it was the enviroment change but we were worried because he wasn't getting any sleep nor did he eat.He was irritated so we decided to cancel the trip and return back home and everything was fine after that.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My 18 month old son sleeps about 10-11 hours a night and will take a 1-2 hour nap during the day. There was a point when he was waking up once in the middle of the night, we switched him to a toddler bed and established a different night time routine and it did the trick. He goes to bed without a fight, stays asleep and wakes up happy. The same for nap time. He seems to do so much better with a good routine. He goes down for a nap every day between 11 and 12 and we do the same bedtime routine every night. My Mom also got him one of those frog star/music things and that helps too. Once he is tucked in we put his froggy on and give one last kiss goodnight. He's out for the night :0)

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My 17 month old sleeps around 12 hours a night and takes a nap anywhere from a 1.5 hr nap to 3 hr nap during the day. It all depends on the child. If he/she is behaving normally and developing on track then do what's good for the both of you. I've found my son doesn't sleep well at night if he doesn't have a snack before bed. Naps just vary on timing and what he wants. Bed is always at 8pm no matter what and nap is always 115 no matter what. Sometimes he tries to get off track, but I set the times. He has to learn to obide by them

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

I used to feel horrible about my son's crazy sleeping habits, but I've just learned to be happy he's healthy. He sleeps about 11 hours at night, but not without waking anywhere from 3 - 6 times a night. Occasionally he'll sleep 7 hours straight, but I'm talking once every 2-3 weeks...he does nap well, and is generally a very happy boy so why worry, I guess.

In my opinion this is the time when they need healthy sleep and one of my friend was also facing this kind of problem and then he tried baby cots and it works for him. [url=www.babyoye.com/brands/wudplay.html]baby cots india[/url]

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My son stopped having a day sleep in his cot when he turned 2! But I agree with other posts, they need the nap in the day so a little drive in the car or a walk in the pram is what we need to do to ensure he gets some rest so he plays well in the afternoon. We love Montessori Materials and Melissa and Doug

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My 16 month old is sleeping about 10-11 hours per night and then still takes almost 4-5 hours of naps during the day. He's very busy and active and I believe in letting him snooze as much as he needs to.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My 15 month old sleeps 10 hours at night and has one long nap during the day. Sometimes it is close to 3 hours but if it's too close to bed time he will fight going to sleep before 9:30.

My daughter just turned 18 months and I feel very, very lucky that she's always been a good sleeper. She gets 10-12 hours at night and takes a 3-4 hour nap every afternoon.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My daughter is 1 and half yrs. Old. She naps in morning and afternoon for about 1-2 hrs. And sleeps 9-10 hours at night.. since she was infant i don't get any problem in her sleeping pattern, my husband and i oblige her to sleep because she's too active and it's helps me to do all my chores.

How much sleep does my toddler really need?

My son sleeps about 11 hours a night and takes 1-3 naps for an average of an hour each. If he doesn't get at least 13-14 hours of sleep in a day/night he can be an ogre!
