Mia is 22 months old and her routine is this:

7.00/7.30 wake up and breakfast
9.30 - snack: apple/pancakes/flapjack/yoghurt
12.00 - lunch: a sandwich and yoghurt and a few crisps
12.30 - 2.00 nap.  It's between an hour and 90 mins.  I really go day by day and by instinct on this as to how much she needs, but certainly no more than 90 mins
3.00 - drink and snack
5.00 - tea time
5.45 - bath
6.30 - 4oz approx moo juice and supper: toast, pancakes or muffins etc
7.15 - up to her room to read books for 15 mins then teeth brushed and into bed at 7.30/7.45.

Skatty - DS, at 20 months now, has always struggled with naps.  He has good phases and bad phases.  Things have definitely been smoother generally since he moved to one nap at around 14 months.  He still has days where he misses a nap (we actually had 3 missed naps within 4 days last week but that was the worst it's been) but the sleep strategies we've used have taken hold enough that he always gets back on track and his night time sleep has continued to always be really good.  Glad we made you feel better - I was in your shoes at one point, too!

Theo is 2 years and 4 days and started sleeping through about 10 weeks ago.
We have pretty early wakings (i am trying to at least keep him in cot bed twith lamp on til 6.30 playing/reading and he has fallen back asleep on a few occasions)

5.30-6.am wake (not as bad as it looks as he now sleeps through night ;D)
6.30  Out of bed and milk
8.00  Breakfast
Activities and lunch 11.45
12.15 ish-1.30-2pm  Nap (1.5-2 hours)
5.00 Tea
5.30-6.15 ish Walk and play in park (sleeps much better the more active this bit is!)
6.20 ish milk
6.40 Bath with daddy
7.00 story
7.10-15 bed (falls asleep immediatly or chatters til 7.30 ish

Relieved to see SOME of your lo's are getting the same 10 hours ish in night, and VERY envious of all of you with lo's sleeping til 7!!!!

Until 3 days ago, 16 -month old DS had been on the same routine for months (since we dropped the early evening catnap back in the dark ages)

Three days ago, DS chose to sleep until 9am (14 hours! straight) and so right now, I'm a little in the air about where we're going. Here's what it used to be:

7 get up, cuddle with Daddy watching CBeebies and a fruit pouch
715 dress and play/ watch CBeebies with Daddy
730 breakfast
play
9 milk and nap
10 nappy change
1030 snack in chair
1145 lunch
1300 nap
1500 milk
1630 snack in chair
1815 dinner
1900 bath
1930 milk and bed (awake when put down)

He had spells of waking early and a couple of times he'd wake in the night, but generally things were good. When there was a scheduled eat or sleep then he was playing. I have at least 2 dedicated times a day where I do a different activity with him and we usually go for a walk after lunch to get rid of any excess energy before nap-time.

Thought I might update our routine since Owen is 2(!!) now!  Pleased to say that at 2, we still are getting a 2 hour nap most days --although, it's a little bit more variable with 2.5 hours some days and 1.5 hours others.  I'm thinking we may be headed to a shorter nap soon.  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

7:30/8 wake
8:30 breakfast
10:00 snack
12:00 lunch

12:30/1 nap (depending on when woke up in AM)

3pm wake (no matter what - to preserve bedtime)

4 pm snack
6 pm dinner

6:45 upstairs for bath, story, bottle (about to wean - he just won't drink milk out of a sippy!  :P ), cuddle, and songs
7:30 in crib

asleep by 8 pm at the latest.

So, we're still getting 12 hour sleep most nights, and 1.5-2.5 hours in naps.  Bless my sleepy boy!  :)

Enjoying the toddler years!

DS is now 19 months and we've just added a little girl to our family - she's 3 weeks now.

DS's day goes like this:

6.30 - 7 Wake up, fruit squeezie
7.30 breakfast
10 milk
11 snack
11.45 goes down for nap at 12 - naps 1 - 2 hours
2 lunch
3.45 milk
5 snack
6 dinner
7 bath
7.30 milk, book and bed

Doing battle with a newborn makes me truly appreciate DS's routine!
