What's a good easy routine for 11 month old
« on: June 17, 2017, 14:38:21 pm »
My lo just turned 11 months and he's been on one nap for months. He's starting to wake a little later now around 6/630 instead of 530 which is good. But he still wants to nap around 10 or around 3.5-4 hours A time for about 1.5-2 hours. When do they change to one nap later in day like a 5 hour A time? He's taking 2 bottles morning and night about 8'oz each and I still offer about 4 oz in a cup around 2. He's eating three meals and a small snack or two and he just sitting officially walking. My lo is in summer camp until the end of July so I'm hoping to keep him on the earlier nap until at least august or September if possible. So that he'll be up by school pick up time at 1145.

If the early nap is working for you I'd just leave it as it is as you want him awake in time for the school pick up anyway.

Do they eventually take one mid day like 12? What's the average A time ? He's doing about 4 hrs before nap and and like 6.5/7 before bed.

Guidance times and routines simply are that - guidance.  You will know now that on BW we don't expect all LOs to follow the same schedule but rather a routine which is suitable to their sleep needs, nature and family circumstances (such as school runs).
In terms of guidance then, an 11 month old would be on 2 naps.
In terms of your own individual routine, if it's working I'd leave it.
he's been on one nap for months.
I see from your previous thread he was still taking 2 naps 1 month ago and going through a possible transitional period to 1 nap.  This transitional period can take a while.  As you've now found a routine that is working for you I would say just stick with it. Yes the A times look uneven but lots of routines have uneven times.

It is working for now but bedtime is early 630 and wakes at 6 am sometimes earlier. He's only taken a second nap on occasion lol.
