11 Month Old Sleep Schedule and Development
11 Month Old Sleep Development:
At 11 months old we’ll continue to 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 3-4 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.]
Let’s take a look at a typical 11 month old schedule:
Note: Sleep needs vary by child and this chart should be viewed as an example.
Early waking can be caused by hunger. If your child is night weaned and rising too early, consider whether you can add more calories during the day or push dinner a bit later to help them sleep later.
Don’t be fooled by nap resistance! Most children will continue to need two naps (at least some of the time) until at least 15 months old.
