I have always shot for 12 hours, at a younger age is was obviously way more, right now it's about 11 for my daughter and usually like 12 for my son.

Both kids -- at night they sleep from 7pm to around 7am. So that's a good 12 hours. If they go to bed closer to 7:30 or 8 (just depends on our day) then I try to not allow them up until after 7am. But Alex has been waking up at 6:45a no matter what these days.

Naps are anywhere from 1 1/2 hrs to 3 hrs. Kairi sleeps more than Alex (which seems really strange to me). We go down after lunchtime, and then they wake up on their own... whenever that may be. Although, I will say that I usually try to put Alex back down the first time he wakes up. He tends to wake up around 30-45 minutes into naptime and then seems to think that I should hold him the rest of naptime. Not happening.

So total, probably more than "they" recommend, but if they get less than that they're super cranky and I can't deal with them. Kairi's been known to ask to go to bed if I don't send her soon enough.

Steph? Your name threw me off... Started to question another child named Kairi mentioned on here lol.

If that works for yall I definately would not worry about it being "more" than they say. I hadn't planned on going by anything on that... just took note of it when I was reading No Cry Sleep Solution when we were having those sleep issues before. On her own she was well in the "normal" area. Quotes used for obvious reasons lol.

But yeah, if Kalila got cranky w/out more we would do more... if she did great w/ less we'd do less. I can't imagine going w less though... You think Kairi and Alex are cranky w/out enough sleep, you should see me! LOL

Porgie (2 years 10 months) - 10 hours at night and a 2 hour nap = 12 hours total

Izzy (1 year and 5 months) - 11 hours at night and a 1 1/2 hour nap = 12 1/2 hours total

How much does Kalila sleep?

idk i will just give you the info on sofia since she is closest in age to yours...she is 18mo and goes to bed about 9:30pm wakes up at 7am... she takes one mini nap at 10am and a long 1 hour nap at about 2pm... so the answer is not enough.

Mama Kalila said...

She goes to bed at 8 and wakes at 7:30ish... if she doesn't wake at night. That pushes her wake time later... 9:30 at latest. So 11 1/2 hours then.

Nap in afternoon for 1 to 2 hours.

So 12 1/2 to 13 1/2 total.

LMBO! I'm sorry ... I didn't realize that it was still signed in under Chris' name. I really was certain I'd signed out of his stuff. So weird. Sorry!

Steph said...

And yeah, I'm not overly concerned about the amount of sleep they get. I'm one of those that need lots and lots and lots of sleep. So I figure that the probably get it from me. ;)

Mama Kalila said...

LOL its' ok... I figured that's what happened.

I wish Kalila would get my "love of sleep" lol. I seriously need more than I'm getting... but like almost everything else, she seems to take after Baba w/ this too.
