Is my 2-year-old sleeping too much?

Just asking for everyone’s opinion and maybe some reassurance. So, my 2 yo is in routine and sleeps 3-hour naps each day but is happy and active and always doing activities or going to parks or somewhere. Morning is arts & crafts and playtime afternoon is outdoors either an outing or backyard play. My question is is he sleeping too much? He wakes at 5 am & goes to bed at 7. His nap is 1 nap from 10-1.

A 2 year old can never sleep enough in my opinion lol

No. Plain and simple. If he was fighting bedtime it may be of concern, but sounds like the kid is my mini-me! His body needs it so let him sleep!

My kids cut out naps at a very early age because they was sleeping from 17.30 to 7-8am . I don’t think a child can ever sleep to much they are always growing body and mind

I think that’s a great schedule!!

Nope, that sounds like a perfect schedule to me!

I have a 2 year old granddaughter that sleeps so much. Dr. said she is doing what her body needs, and is growing. Let her sleep as long as she is active when she’s up

If I could get my twins to take a 3 hour nap I’d eat a rock. Lol.
They sleep about the same but split up. Usually 2… 1 hour, 1 1/2 hour naps over here.

My granddaughter takes 3 hour naps. She is 3 she did when she was 2 also. I think some kids just need more rest

Nope same amount of hours as our 2 yr old. Just different hours

Sounds perfect to me. Enjoy those naps, they don’t last long :sob::sob:

My son always required a lot of sleep

Nah he’s good. Enjoy the naps. My 5 year old stopped taking naps literally the day she turned 2. My 3 year old is taking fewer and fewer naps and it’s only 45 min-1 hour if that!

Doesn’t sound like it to me. Sounds pretty normal.

Each kid is different. What is important is that it works for him.
