I have a 13 month old in my care that sleeps from about 915 til 1015 then 1145-2 then 4-5 and his mom says he is in bed from 730-7sh every night.  His mom feels like he’s almost constantly in a growth spurt (he’s wearing 18mo and sometimes 24mo clothing) and justifies it that way. Ultimately his Dr isn’t concerned so she just lets it happen. I guess some children just need more sleep than others.

All of my kids were amazing sleepers when they were going through growth spurts!  Could it be that?

Warren is a sleeper too. He’s only awake 6-7 hours a day and sleeps the rest. He only eats 4 times a day! Most of the time he goes 5 hrs between his 1st and 2nd meal of the day. I figure if he’s not screaming, I’m not going to worry about it 🙂

Cycle.  Wake/Eat (1.5 hrs) – Nap (3 hrs) – Wake/Eat (1.5 hrs) – Nap (2 hrs) – Wake/Eat (1.5 hrs) – Nap (1-2 hrs) – Wake/Eat (1.5 hrs) – Down for the night.

The last two nights he’s been bucking the system and waking up every 1-2 hours at night. Not sure what is happening with my ‘superstar’ 🙂 I was thinking a growth spurt might be making him more hungry? Though usually sticking a paci in his mouth and he’s back to sleep – so he doesn’t really need to eat.

My daughter slept a LOT for the first 2 years of her life. Now she doesn’t nap at all… Gosh, I miss the napping days!

Oh yeah!  Addie sleeps 15 – 16 hours a day.  She’s usually only up for about 2 hours in between naps, but I can stretch it to 3 hours once in a while if we’re out doing something.  The good thing is that it makes me feel less like I’m missing out on stuff when she’s sleeping all day with the nanny.  🙂
