Babies change very fast, including their sleep schedules. That said, many of you may be wondering, “What is a 10-month-old’s sleep schedule?” or “How long should my 10-month-old sleep during the day?”

We’re here to answer those very questions!

A Chart of 10-Month-Old’s Sleep Schedule

Every baby’s unique, including your own. Focus less on the specific clock times and more on wake windows – the amount of time your baby is awake between naps or their last nap and bedtime.

Wake windows are a fundamental driver of sleep because it’s how your baby sleeps during the day that sets them up for overnight sleep success.

Q: Can a 10-month-old baby sleep through the night?

Yes, by now most babies can sleep through the night. If your baby is still waking at night, it may be time to consider sleep training, this teaches your baby to self-soothe so they can fall asleep faster and also put themselves back to sleep if they wake at night.

The Smart Sleep Coach by Pampers™ guides you every step of the way and provides a personalized plan to help get your baby’s (and your) sleep on track.
