What time to they get up, go down for the nap, how long do they nap, and when do they go to bed for a normal, typical, average day?
I think our big struggle for 1 nap is his nap time. I just don't know when to try to put him down for 1 nap to work.
Simon is transitioning to 1 nap. Yesterday was lovely! He was up at 730am, napped from 1030 to 1245pm, bed at 800pm no fuss. That would be our ideal day.
Today not so much. Only napped from 11 to 12. He seems tired already (at 220) but I wont let him nap again yet. Maybe in an hour or so I'll see if he wants another quick nap. Not ideal though.
Yesterday was a very nice day. I'm trying to encourage a nap around 1030 for at least 2 hours. It doesnt happen often. LOL! But at least with the one nap he 99% of the time is out without a fuss at 730-8pm and generally sttn (though has had 1 waking the past few nights for a little boobie snack. LOL!)
Lyla wakes up in the morning around 7:30. She goes down for a nap between 1 and 2pm and sleeps for 1hr to 1.5hours. She used to go to bed around 7-7:30p, but it's been 8 or 8:30pm lately. I think we may have to try 9pm since she stays awake in her crib for a while after I put her down, but she is teething right now and seems to be going through a growth spurt too.
I think Aiden's issue is the length of his naps. Can't get the kid to sleep longer than an hour. I think that's why he asks for a 2nd nap. Need a magic solution to get him to sleep longer. Maybe next week I'll try to get him to go down right after lunch. Maybe a full belly will help.
Delaney gets up around 7:30-8:00.....down for a nap right after lunch, sleeps for about 3 hours. Goes to bed at 9-9:30.
We just transistioned to 1 nap per day....she was having MAJOR sleep issues and waking up at 2, 3 4 am sometimes.
Odin is up for the day by 6:30/6:45, goes down for a nap right after lunch at 12:30 until 3/3:30, bedtime is by 7:30. He is extrememly active between wake-up and nap while with all my preschool kids, it totally wears him out. On weekends he tends to nap later, like 1:00/1:30, and a little shorter period of time since its more relaxed with just family around and less exhausting.
