    Any recommendations for getting twins to sleep through the night? We been doing a routine with bath time, reading, and brushing teeth. They are 11 months. One is better than the other. I dont know what different to do but give them a bottle

    My baby is turning 11 months on Sept 13. She’s been fighting all naps but the issue I have is now having to pick up my older daughter from school at 3:15. I have no other way around this – what advice do you have for the second nap?
    Typical schedule
    7 wake up
    10:30- 11 nap
    2:30-4 nap
    7 bed
    Thank you kindly

      Hi Amber,
      Thank you for checking out The Baby Sleep Site! Based on our sample 11 month-old schedule, it seems like the easiest thing you can do is shift your second nap of the day earlier. See our sample schedule here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/schedules/11-month-old-schedule/

      If you happen to be a Baby Sleep Site member, I would recommend asking your question to one of the sleep consultants directly during a Member Chat. That way you can get direct advice based on your specific baby. I hope this helps, and good luck!

    I’m what I thought was an experienced mom of 5 but now that my nieces live with us they’re proving you never stop learning! My youngest niece is 11 months old and I’m dying for a good nights sleep. She falls asleep around 8:30, wakes no more than an hour later wanting another bottle or to be held. Will go back to sleep at wakes 2-3 hours again for a bottle. She does this all night. She’s then up around 7, has a diaper change, plays a bit and then breakfast. Then it’s usually a bottle or a little water and by 10 a nap. She doesn’t have many bottles during the day but eats solids wonderfully. She seems to want to cluster feed at night and does not sleep well at all. Help! I’m so exhausted.

    Thank you so much for this site! My son is 11 months now and I have been coming here frequently to get advice, and “trouble shoot”. My son is trying to walk now and gets tired quick, we use to be ‘right on schedule ‘ with his naps. Wake at 7am, nap at 10… now he is tired by 9 so I put him down for a nap. He has gone back to 3 naps a day but it works well for him. Makes it hard for me again to get stuff done, but if I was working as hard has he is, I would be exhausted too!
