Examples of a 13 Month Old Nap Schedule

Struggling with sleep problems and regression in your toddler? Check out these daily 13 month old nap schedule examples for ideas!

13 Month Old Nap ScheduleOnce your baby turns a year old, nap schedules can be thrown off track. She’s shedding her infant habits and will likely be dropping the second nap within a few months. Just when you had finally gotten a hang of nap times, her routine is starting to change once again and she isn’t getting much sleep.

Putting her down in the crib for bedtime has been harder to do, especially when her wake window after that afternoon nap is short. She’s in a transition phase where you’re altering her naptime routine, especially as she’s hitting new developmental milestones.

It’s no wonder that her sleep schedule can start stressing you out once again.

Examples of a 13 month old nap schedule

That’s why I wanted to gather several examples of a good nap schedule for this particular stage.

Many kids this age are still taking two naps, with most dropping to one daytime nap around 14-18 months old. This explains why you might be experiencing some disruptions to your day (and nighttime sleep).

Expert tip

Limit the first nap to 1-1.5 hours of sleep at most. Otherwise, your toddler will likely take a long morning nap and a shorter afternoon one (or refuse the second one completely). You might even stop her from waking at 5am by keeping that first nap short.

And if she happens to have a short or skipped nap, aim for an earlier bedtime to accommodate her sleep needs.

While it might be too early for one nap, seeing how other moms structure their daytime sleep can help you create your own 13 month old nap schedule. Below are several examples to start you off and help your child get enough sleep:
