I was just thinking about this the other day. Betsy is getting close to 12 hours a sleep a day -- some days she takes a nap and when she does, she'll stay up longer at night but on napless days, she'll go down pretty fast and sleep for 11 -- 12 hours at night.
10 or 11 hours at night, and usually a 2-3 hour nap everyday. there are days that we skip the nap if we have to go out, but he then gets crabby in the late afternoon and gets clumsy so I can tell he still needs a daily nap. He never wants to take the nap though, I have to work hard with the book & lullabye routine & lots of convincing before I can get him in his crib. then he will sleep for a solid 2-3 hours & sometimes even longer.
Elaina is an insomniac....she fights bedtime til 10 or later most nights...wakes multiple times during the night and is often up before 8am. She gets between 8-10 hours I guess but it's not straight sleep
I wish there was a "like" button like on Facebook, I can relate to so many of you above with respect to our sleep lately. Michael goes to bed really late around 10 pm and then it takes him another hour or so to fall asleep on the days that he has nap. I make him take a nap every day though. He's ok without a nap but does get cranky and needy around 5-6pm on those days. So I do know that he needs a nap but it takes so much effort from me, I need to hold him, etc. which I didn't have to do before. So he naps for about 2-2.5 hrs and about 9-10 hrs at night. Without a nap, he falls asleep right away and but still sleeps about 10 hrs.
