How Much Does Your Baby Sleep During The Day?

  • Sharebar

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.

    I have a 5 month old son and he take 2 to 3 naps a day about an hour to 2 or 3 hours each.He will usually go to bed around 730 at night,waking 2 or 3 times to feed and will be up at about 7 or 8 in the morning.His afternoon nap a few days ago he slept for 4 hours!! He got up at 6 and i was worried he would not go back down but he did and slept a normal night.It has only been the last couple of weeks i have been able to get him on this schedule,before if he napped lots through the day he wouldn’t go to sleep till 9 or 10 and even then he didnt want to go to bed!lol!!She should figure it out,good luck.

    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!

    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.
