Life With a Baby > What times do your babies wake up?

I figure this would be a good partner to the "What times do your babies go to bed?" poll.

My dd goes to sleep around 9-9:30 and sleeps till 8:30-10.

She only naps about 1-2/hrs per day though. (she's had three 3-hour naps i nher life and they were amazing!)

He goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00, and gets up between 6:00 and 6:30, although occasionally he surprises me by sleeping in til 7:00 or later.

This works for us because of my school schedule anyways, although sleeping in on weekends would be VERY welcome! lol

my little one goes to bed between 6:30-7:30 and wakes between 5:45-6:15 since that is when we get up and she hears us. Sadly the nights are still crazy most of the time : But way better than they were so I really should not be complaining:

it's a painful question :

sometimes 3 or 4 and with some work, 5-6

with a lot of work, 7 or 8, but what came before that usually counts more as a nap b/c he's been up for a while before he went back to sleep.

(the morning squeals, facial grabbing, and smiles in the dim light are really cute though )

I think there needs to be a poll option for "I keep my sanity by not looking at the clock and not counting"

My kids go to sleep around 10-11 and wake up around 8:30 lately. They used to stay up and wake up later, though-- sometimes 12am-11am.
My 13 mo. old was up from 8:30-10:30 yesterday with one hour-long nap around 3pm. And he stayed up with his daddy even after I nursed him and went to sleep with my big kid!:

My DS wakes up around 5 am to eat then goes back to bed until 7 - 7:30. He goes to bed around 8:30 pm and he naps between 2 - 3 hours a day.

Great post! DS is 5 months and goes to sleep for the night between 7:30 and 10pm. And wakes usually at 7am then has first nap between 10am and 11am for anywhere from 15minutes to 1 hour. He has another nap in the afternoon too for about an hour.

DS usually is up for the day at around 9-10, but sometimes will wait until 11.

we were on a later schedule while DH worked nights, but now we're trying to slowly push it back so DS will sleep from 8-7 with a couple of longer naps instead of from 9 or 10 till 8 with a bunch of catnaps.

He gets up for the day around 7. Sometimes a bit earlier, occasionally 7:30.

He goes down for a nap about 1-1.5 hours after he wakes up. That nap is for about 2 hours. Then another lunch time nap for about 2 hours. Then a quick nap in the late afternoon, for about 45 minutes.
