How many hours of sleep a day and night should I expect from my almost 18 month old? Rss

Hi Maree,

I am wondering how many hours of sleep I should be expecting from my almost 18 month old daughter. She is a great night sleeper, usually from 7pm to 6.30am - 7am. But her day sleeps are very poor - often a 40 minute sleep is all I can get out of her for the day. She gets cranky and unco-operative when she is tired during the day... What sort of day sleep pattern should I follow and how much sleep does my toddler need?

Thanks,

Michelle smile

P.S. Just wanted to add what a great idea this post site is.
Hi Michelle,

Nice to hear from you. 12 hours overnight is perfect and at 18 months I would be expecting an early afternoon nap of about 2 hours, you need to act on tired signs and not wait until Maddy is very tired and cranky, an over tired baby or toddler is harder to settle.

Cheers Maree
