How mch sleep and wake time for an 11month old. Rss

My little guy who will be 11months old wakes at about 8.00am and is awake for 3 to 3 1/2 hours in the morning. I put him down for a sleep at 11.00am and he will only sleep half an hour. He is then awake for another 3 to 3 1/2 hours then sleeps for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Is he phasing out his morning sleep or do I need to keep him up longer in the morning. What is a good routine for a baby this age?

Hi Jeanette,

Over the next few months you will begin to see a change in the daytime sleep patterns, we try to avoid naps too late in the afternoon as then it’s too late to bed in the evening. Your best guide is to watch for tired signs, rubbing eyes, grizzling, not happy with anything going, yawning and act on them. If you would prefer that he had just one good afternoon sleep then I would suggest an early lunch around 11.30am and down for a nap about 12 noon hopefully for a good 2 hours.

Cheers Maree
