    Milo had 2-3 -- but usually 2, at that age.
    Sometimes it would be 2 sleeps 1hr+ and a nap of 20-40 minutes.

    How many milk feeds does he have? Milo tended to have a sleep or nap between each of these.

    At that age Matilda started dropping her 3rd nap. She would have an hour & half in the morning and then just over an hour in the early arvo & then around 4pm she would nap for around 30 minutes... when it was taking us 45 minutes to get her to sleep & she decreased the time at the late arvo nap we encouraged her to drop it.

    For the first few weeks of dropping that nap she would go to bed around 6.30pm because she was just trashed. And would wake up at 5.30am ... but she slowly was able to move everythng back over a few weeks.

    I usually get up at 6 and get ready for work. I then give Jovi her bottle. If I'm lucky she sleeps through it and I put her back in bed. DH tells me she will usually sleep until at least 8 most mornings but lately she won't go back to sleep until I get home at lunch (around 12), or will just have a 10 minute nap (I think because I was home for a month recently so now she's rebelling a bit against DH and wants her mummy).

    If DH is lucky, she'll sleep for 1/2 to 1 hour then up again ... usually until I get home again at 4:30 then I'll play with her, down for a nap for around 40 minutes ... up, bottle, tea, bath, play then down anywhere between 8 & 9:30. I give her another bottle when I go to bed, usually around 11 but she again sleeps through it.

    Aside from some odd "night terrors' as i like to call them (she just starts screaming but will usually stop once i put the dummy in) she'll sleep through the night (mind you since DH had a back op a couple of months ago, she now insists on getting in our bed around 4am until i get up ... little bugger!)

    I just think as they get older they want to know whats going on at all times and think they'll miss out (Jovi is an aweful busy body ... can't take her anywhere! lol)

    We have no pattern! LOL. Altho I spose if I look hard enuf, there might be a pattern to it.

    Bedtime is usually around 9.30pm. Lately it's taken 1hr+ to actually get him to sleep. Then on average, he wakes around 1am for a feed, and then around 5.30am (probably coz of DH's alarm going off) then can sleep until about 9am (best time for me to get stuff done btw!!). Then he'll often sleep again around 11.30ish for maybe an 1hr? more if I'm lucky. Then he's awake FOREVER. He might have a short 1/2 hr nap around 4 or 5 if I can get him to. And another quick nap around 7 ish (these nap times vary every day.. whenever he shows tired signs (or if we're in the car he has a nap)) and then awake until bedtime again, around 9.30 ish.

    Ella still has the same sleep pattern as she did when she was around 6months and she's now 15 months. She has three sleeps during the day. One in the morning for about 1-2hrs. One at midday for the same time. And a shorter sleep between 4-5pm. She will usually sleep between 7/8pm - 7/9am. She loves her sleep....takes after her mum - lol!
