Iggy is 17 months old, a Spirited/Textbook cheeky chimp.

SUMMARY : I give him four big meals , plus 2 snacks and a 2-hour nap.

6.30-7am wake
7-7.30am breakfast
10-10.30am snack (fruit)
11.30 lunch
12-2pm sleep
2.30pm snack
4pm bigger meal (carb based)
6pm dinner
6.30 bath
7pm bed and sleep

we thank Tracy almost daily for giving us this control and routine. Iggy goes down without a fuss for all naps and bedtimes... at nursery they marvel at his sleep but also his good nature (which i put down to good routine and proper sleeps).

My goodness, how do you all get your toddlers to sleep so much!  I am soooo envious.  He never sleeps longer than 10 hours a night unless he's sick.  What am I doing wrong?

Here's Little Man's schedule:
He's 19 months.

6:00-6:30 Up and at 'em; give me breakfast!

8:30-9:30 (somewhere in there) Snack

11:00 Lunch

11:30-2:30 Nap

2:30/3:00 Snack

4:30 Dinner

7:00 milk

7:30 Wind-down

8:00 In bed

Edited: changed nap to an hour longer.  Right after I posted this he started taking 2.5 to 3 hour naps and has been ever since.  So now, thankfully, he's getting all 13 hours of needed sleep.

Hunter seems to sleep alot less at night than everyone else here, but here's his schedule at the moment ... including his early am waking that I have to get him settled back down with due to recurrant colds this year!  AAARGH!

3-4 am - early am wake up.  Can usually get him back to sleep within 15 minutes
5:30 am awake for day ... yup and I work afternoons and don't get to bed until midnight at the earliest
6:00 am bottle of milk (soon to be sippy)
7ish am breakfast with juice sippy
10 am he'll snack as I or DH have breakfast
Noon Lunch
2:30 -1 pm Nap.  He is a GREAT NAPPER, he'll sleep anywhere from 2-3 hrs.  As I am at work, DH lets him sleep it out.  I would wake him at the 2 hr mark to see if his night time sleep gets better, but I'm not willing to fight on this issue yet
3ish snack with milk
5pm supper
7pm bath (if I am off) and bottle of milk
8pm bedtime if he hasn't fallen asleep on his own.  We have tried to get him an earlier bed time but he fights it until 8 anyways, so what's the point?

That's his schedule.  We are working on getting him to sleep in until 7am again, but it's very slow going.

Isabella is 14 months, this is our schedule

7.30am-wake and bottle of milk
8.00am-breakfast
10.00am-snack(fruit)
12.00am-lunch
1.00pm-nap
3.30-4.00pm-wake and snack(fruit)
5.30-dinner
6.45-bath, story, milk(takes approx 45mins)
7.30am-bed

She dropped her am nap when she was very young, about 9 months, just refused to go to sleep when i tried to put her down, but i'm feeling the benefit now she neaps for 3 hours most afternoons!!
Interesting to see how so many BW babies follow almost identical schedules, just goes to show that it obviously works!

Ellie is 13.5 months, and here is our schedule

6.00 or 6.30am   Wake (finally conquered the early morning monster.  Touch wood.  But now bloody daylight savings is about to end.  Humph) - breakfast and cows milk pretty much straight away.
7.00                   Play
7.30                   Shower with mumma
8.00                   Play
9.00                   Snack
9.15                   Out the door (if creche day) or more play
11.00 or 11.30    Lunch
12.00 (about)     Sleep
1.45 to 2.30       Wake and play
3.15 or 3.30       Snack
5.15 or 5.30       Dinner

She only has cows milk morning and night, and drinks water pretty much the rest of the day.

I agree 100% with this!  I've just re-read most of the schedules here, and am amazed at how similar they all are!

Charlotte's weekday generally looks like this, it is slightly different at the weekend.

7.00 am - Wake, wash, dress.
7.45 am - Leave the house.
8.00 am - Arrive at childminders.
8.30 am - Breakfast.

During the morning activities, usually toddler group or painting at Childminder's she'll have a snack.

12.00 pm - Lunch
2.00 pm (ish) - Nap
3.00 pm - Wake, afternoon activities.
5.30 pm - Mummy arrives to take her home.  Chat with Childminder about her day.
6.00 pm - Home.  Make tea.  Charlotte plays while Mummy cooks tea.
6.30 pm (ish) - Tea.
7.15 pm - Bath.  After bath, she has a drink of milk.
8.00 pm - Bed.

This is generally what her day looks like.
