Find a personalized sleep schedule for your baby

Are you a new parent or caregiver looking for a personalized sleep schedule for your little one? We understand that getting your baby into a healthy sleep routine is crucial for both their development and your well-being. That's why we've created this sleep guide to help you navigate the often challenging world of figuring out your baby’s sleep schedule.

Newborn-3 Months

  • Total Sleep: 14 to 18 hours a day. During the first months, newborn babies sleep in bits and pieces all throughout the day, so there isn’t much of a ‘schedule’ to speak of.
  • Day Starts: Awake time at 7 am
  • Napping:Your little sleepy head will take lots of little naps (for up to 8 hours!) During these first few months, it’s normal for your baby to sleep just about anywhere and everywhere. That’s completely ok.
  • Nighttime Sleep: Bedtime schedules might not start until around 9-10 pm in those early weeks. Your baby will drift on and off through the night, waking to feed. The longest stretch of sleep lasts 3-5 hours.

4-6 Months

  • Total Sleep: 12-14 hours a day.
  • Day Starts: Between 6-8 am, depending on your baby's unique schedule and needs, of course!
  • Napping: 2-3 daytime naps, totaling 3-5 hours a day.
  • Nighttime Sleep: Bedtime routine starts around 6-7 pm. Your baby may have an unbroken stretch of sleep of 6-8 hours, and they will likely be on their way to “sleeping through the night!”

7-12 Months

  • Total Sleep: 12-14 hours a day by the time they hit 8 months.
  • Day Starts: Between 6-7 am
  • Napping: usually 2 daytime naps.
  • Nighttime Sleep Starts: Bedtime routine starts around 6-7 pm now. Your baby’s longest stretch of quiet sleep is likely a glorious 7-9 hours at night and most babies are capable of sleeping through the night without a feed! Some babies might still need to feed overnight but talk to your healthcare provider for tips on helping you cut down on those night feeds if that is a goal for you.

12 Months and Up

  • Total Sleep: 12-14 hours in a full day’s cycle.
  • Day Starts: 6-7 am.
  • Napping: 1-2 daytime naps, totaling 2-4 hours daily.
  • Nighttime Sleep: usually earlier, with your baby hitting the hay between 6-8 pm. Early enough for mom and dad to get some alone time! Most babies are able to sleep through the night at this age. Talk to your healthcare provider if they are still waking to feed throughout the night.
