10 Month Old Sleep Schedule: Bedtime and Nap Schedule

At 10 months old we’ll aim for at least 13.5 hours of total sleep per day (11-12 hours at night and 2-3 hours of day sleep over 2 naps). Most children need 3-3.75 hours of awake time in between sleep periods at this age.

[Note: for children who were born early, we go by their adjusted age for sleep development.]

Now that your baby is getting older, it should be much easier to handle the 2 nap schedule without getting overtired.

Note: Sleep needs vary by child and this chart should be viewed as an example.

If your baby is helped to sleep at bedtime (i.e. fed or rocked until asleep) and it’s no longer working for you, we recommend working on helping them fall asleep without assistance. Independent sleepers tend to have easier bedtimes and decreased night waking.

If you’re looking for a more predictable schedule, it’s a great time to transition to a “by the clock” schedule rather than one based upon awake time.
