What time do most 6 month olds wake up?1 min read
6 MONTH OLD SLEEP SCHEDULE I would expect morning wake up time to be between 6-8am and bedtime to fall between 6-8pm. This is what is considered normal for their circadian rhythm. I would also expect 10-12 hours of nighttime sleep (in their bed, not a continuous stretch).
What is the average awake time for a 6 month old?
A: An average 6 month old baby needs 3 naps per day, with 2 – 3 hours of awake time in between sleep periods. The period of wakefulness before the first nap tends to be the shortest of the day, and most babies are ready for that first snooze after 2 hours of wake time.
What is the wake window for a 6 month old?
6 MONTHS-OLDS Wake windows range from 2-2.5 hours. The first nap of the day often has to be a bit earlier, around 1 hour and 45 minutes. So play around with these wake windows and see if this is what your baby needs. Naps should total approximately 3.5-4 hours in duration.
How often should a 6 month old wake up at night?
By 6 months of age, most babies are capable of sleeping for at least six to eight hours at night. If your baby still wakes up several times a night, these sleep patterns are habits that most likely will continue for many months unless you make some changes.
Is 8PM bedtime too late for 6 month old?
Quality sleep tends to happen before midnight for most babies (and adults!) so don’t be afraid of an earlier bedtime. Find your child’s “sleep sweet spot”, then stick to it – for babies younger than 12 weeks, bedtime should be around 9PM to 10PM. Babies older than 12 weeks do best with bedtime around 7PM to 8PM.
