What will my toddler’s sleep pattern be at 12 months?
Although your child’s growing more independent each day, he still has many of the same needs as when he was a baby, especially when it comes to sleep. From 12 months to 18 months, your toddler will need around 13 hours to 14 hours of sleep a day, with 11 of those hours being at night.
At 12 months, your toddler may still need two naps during the day. But by or before the age of 18 months, he may be ready to condense this into one longer nap of one and a half hours to two hours.
Look out for signs that your toddler may be ready to make this transition. He may start to take longer to nod off during the day or sleep well in the morning and then resist the afternoon nap. Or he may start waking up earlier than usual from his naps.
