12 and 13 Month Old Baby Sleep Schedule

In this article, I talk about an 11 and 12 month old sleep schedule and also added a sample schedule.

By 12 – 13  months of age, your baby is consistently taking 2 naps per day.  At this age, your baby needs 1.5 -3 hours of daytime nap hours total and 11-12 hours of overnight sleep.

I don’t love sharing “sample schedules” because I feel they can set a gal up to fail when things don’t follow the schedule exactly.

In my private consultations and online classes, I teach a “flexible schedule” using awake times to guide you through the day.  However, at this age your baby is becoming much more resilient to nap timing and being late for a nap by 15 minutes doesn’t have the same dramatic effect that it would when your baby is 4-6 months of age.

12-13 Month Old Sample Schedule

6:00 am – Wake up and feed

7:30 am – Breakfast – Solid 1

9:00 am – Nap 1 – 45 min to 1.5 hours

10:00 am –  Wake up

10:00 am – Feed and snack

11:45 am – Lunch – Solid 2

1:30 – Nap 2 – 1 to 2 hours

3:30 pm – Wake up – 2.5-hour nap

3:30 pm – Feed and snack

5:30 pm – Dinner – Solid #3

6:50 pm – Last feed

7:20 pm – Put down in crib

7:30  pm – Asleep

Most kids are sleeping through the night 11 hours without feeding.
