What's your 1 year old's nap schedule like?

My DD is 14 months and takes one 3 hour nap a day at 1pm and sleeps about 8pm to 8am or 12 hours. Of course she'll wake up a couple times to fuss a tiny bit or little bit of milkies 8pm-12 and sometimes early in the morning at 6am, but not as often anymore. She sleeps with us which is best for now since we're living in temp housing for a month until we find a rental. She's always slept with us so I don't want to change that until we get settled in a house. Night sleeping is going pretty good actually.

I'm wondering about what's typical for naps and if I should tweak it so we can get in some fun playtime outside and that she can get her needed 3 hours?

We are transitioning ( or just transitioned ) my 14 month old from 2 naps (10am and 2 pm) to 1 nap from noon- usually 2 ish. Is working well.

My son is 12.5 months...

Up until maybe about 8 weeks ago, he slept from 10pm to 9am, had a nap from 12pm-2pm and that was it. I never structured his sleep, he just makes himself a little nest on the floor and falls asleep, and at night, he comes to bed with us and sleeps there until he wakes up. 

...however, lately he's transitioned himself to wake up at 7am (still going to bed at 10pm) and takes a nap at 11am-1pm and sometimes another one at 4pm or 5pm for an hour. I guess this new sleep cycle might be because of the days getting longer?

Oh the ever elusive toddler who falls asleep on their own when they get sleepy! wink1.gif

My DD will has never done that, unless she's in the car and that is exactly when I don't want her to sleep. DH has some pretty bad insomnia so I'm hoping she doesn't inherit that. She needs to be nursed down for a nap. DH can get her to sleep while wearing her.

She's already had days where she doesn't nap AT ALL.

My 15 month old transitioned to one nap about 6 weeks ago, but has also been getting really sleepy in the late afternoon where she could probably take a nap.  I think the change in light is messing up her schedule a little... Our schedule now is roughly bed at 10, asking for milk at about 5 am and up for the day around 8 and a 1.5-2 hour nap somewhere around 1.  I say roughly because that varies widely day by day, but it averages out to about what I said, lol!  Kaydove, I think your schedule sounds wonderful! That's a good time to be inside anyway because the sun is strong this time of year. Consider yourself lucky that you have a little one who sleeps so well!  You can get a lot done for yourself with 3 hours a day!
