8 months naps?
Aug 27, 2010 5:08PM
How long can your 8 month olds go before a nap? LO used to go only 3 hours before needing another nap but I'm starting to notice it creep up to 3.5 hours, it's hard to catch it sometimes before he gets overtired.

At 8 months Sam used to have a nap two hours after he woke up - so usually at about 9am. Then either a long afternoon nap - from 1 - 2.30ish or if we weren't at home, a couple of catnaps in car and pram.

if we're out ems will catnap on and off all day but when we're at home she will go anything from 1.5 hours - 5 hours! without a nap. she does however sleep lots more when feeling under the weather/teething etc so i think the less naps are her way of making up for sleeping so much the day before iyswim? lol

we normally go 3 1/2 hours between naps with the exeption of the afternoon, he will wake up at 2.30pm from nap and goes to bed at 6.30pm so he does a 4 hour stretch then. a few months ago he could only manage 2 hours awake but it changed over night and his naps are now longer and more spaced out, works much better for us!

My 8 month old got up at 8am today, went down for a nap at 11.30am for half an hour and then his next one was 4pm so that was 3.5 and 4 hours today. Normally it's more like 3-3.5 but funny things seem to be happening with his naps at the moment, he has become a bit difficult to settle. HTH xx

In the mornings Toby usually needs a naap 2 hours after he wakes up (although that's 2 hours after I hear him, I'm starting to think that he might actually be waking earlier but just playing quietly in his cot for a bit). In the afternoon he can go from anywhere from 2-4 hours before having a nap, I can never predict it!

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
