How long are your babies staying awake during the day when they aren't eating? How long at a stretch, and then how many stretches a day?

I feel like I'm always trying to get Ingrid to sleep and I can't tell if I should be letting her stay awake longer! But then sometimes it feels like she's hardly slept at all and I wonder if I'm making her overtired.

She's happy to take an hour to lazily sleep-eat and then I think her max for awake and happy time is about an hour after that. I'm not really keeping track to know when she's doing this though and we have no schedule. Not that I'm pushing a schedule per se, but with back to work looming in less than 4 weeks, I'm certainly thinking about keeping our days pretty consistent and streamlined.

He takes a late morning nap for an hour and then a 2 hour nap around 5 or so. Other than that he's awake all day. He sleeps from 9pm-10am though

Tessa apparently doesn't need sleep! She is usually up all day from about 8am til 9pm with 10-15 min catnaps here and there. Overnight she's up usually around 3 and 6 ...

It's hard to say because I don't keep track necessarily, but I'd say an hour or so at a time is the max before she starts getting overstimulated and fussy.

We are in the no schedule, not keeping track bunch. I'd guess an hour though. He sleeps decent at night usually he eats 2xs overnight (once middle of the night *ish* and once super early AM) and then sleeps in pretty late in the AM after that early feed he's down for the count till at least 9 AM if not later. He's up for a bit then he usually sleeps during pickup (11 *ish*) and for a while (2 or 3 hours) once we are back home then he's up for I'd guess another hour or so before he's down for another 2 or 3, repeat the pattern

Ryder has a awakey time from like 6-830 ish usually. He naps for about an hour after that then stays awake for like 2 hours. Then has a long nap about 3 hours . The evenings are either him napping more or he's up and fussy..

It seems to depend somewhat on the day, but he usually has 2-3 times throughout the day where he is alert for 2-3 hours. He stays awake during that time eating and then continues to be alert while on my lap, in the swing, hanging out on the couch, etc.
