I just figured out how much my ds actually sleeps - generally its about 9 hours at night and thats it. If he naps (which is rare, and usually in the car), he goes to bed later so ends up sleeping the same amount.
Ive read that toddlers need 13+ hours of sleep, but he seems totally fine with 9. He also doesnt get that 'tired cranky' thing that most kids seem to get - he is happy and active until night time when he passes out. He often wakes up once a night to go potty as well.
He is 25months.
I'm thinking he doesnt want to sleep because he just has so many other things to do - he is always reading books, wanting me to teach him to read, counting things, sorting things, drawing, cooking, swimming, playing outside etc.
Should I be worried? It would be awsome if he would nap once in a while, but he just doesnt seem to need it at all!
