11 Month Old Sleep Schedule: Bedtime and Nap Schedule

Amber LoRe

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.

Sleep Tip:

 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.

Sleep Fact:

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.
