I have a 3 year old son that goes to bed between 8:30 and 9 pm. He sleeps untill about 7. 7:30 if I'm very lucky. He absolulty needs to take a nap for at least an hour or we pay for it. He usually sleeps in the afternoon for 1-2 hours.

My son seems to have weird sleeping habits despite what I do to regulate them. I was just wondering how his compares to others. Thanks for your input everyone!

My daughter is one of the ones who 'doesn't need sleep'.... =/
She stopped with regular naps at prob 1 1/2...and has never gone to bed earlier than 830 pm...Now she is 3...still no naps..she will sometimes take a short one at daycare since all the other kids are..but this is rare..usually she doesnt nap there either. And as some of the previous posters have mentioned...she's not asleep till 9:30pm. Shes up every morning at 6:20am...weekends she may let me sleep in till 7am...if im lucky. She just doesnt need 12 hours of sleep...shes full of energy, healthy as a cow, and very smart....and *gasps* she even co-sleeps with me most nights..not because she wants to...more because i want her to (Single Mommy)..i love my cuds (aka cuddling)..even though she ends up kicking me and stealing my covers most nights haha...every kid is diff..as long as your child is happy and healthy..don't feel you have to compare thier habits to some pages in a book!

My 3 year old (this Wed!) goes to bed at 7ish, falls asleep sometime later, and wakes up around 7ish, give or take. She has been doing this since about 9 months. She also takes an afternoon nap starting 1ish, that can go from 2-3 hours. Sometimes the afternoon nap gets disrupted either because she poops or her baby sister wakes up first and makes a lot of noise (they share a room). But her sister (16 months) has the same sleep schedule, and has since about 6 months. But they are very average children with no unusual issues, sleep or otherwise. I'm told many toddlers give up their afternoon nap around 3 yo. Some give them up much earlier. Some kids just don't seem to need/want as much sleep as others. I'm grateful mine do.

I have a 4.5 year old, and a 16.5 month old. Both of them go to bed at 7:30 PM, and both of them get up at 7:30 AM. My 4.5 year old naps 1-2 hours on days she's not in school, and 1 hour the days she is in school. The younger takes a 2 hour morning nap, and a 2 hour afternoon nap.

My daughter is three -

bedtime is 7:30pm - she often sings and plays and makes demands for more hugs and h20 until about 8pm - then usually drifts off - somtimes she sings and talks in there much later

up at 6:45am for pre-school / daycare

She typically refuses her naps - very rarely sleeps anymore! we try quite time though!

Just recently she has started waking up at 3am and waking me to tell me she is awake between her and our 8 month old Im quite tired - let's hope this does not continue for long!

My 2 year old goes has a bedtime of about 8:30-9pm.
Still wakes at night, although usually very early morning.
Gets up for the day at about 7-7:30am and has one 1-2 hour nap during the day.
