Default Length of Naps?

How long do your kiddos (babies) sleep during the day? Mine, ranging from 8 months to 14 months, nap 2 hours in the morning, and 1.5-2 hours in the afternoon. They currently go down at 9:30 and 2:45.

Just wondering what the norm is for everyone else.

My under 12months kids follow a nap schedule set by their parents. I have a 10 week old that basically sleeps all day at this point. A 8 mth old that takes a 45 min or longer nap shortly after each bottle (3 if she’s here all day). And a 7 mth old that is “supposed” to sleep 30-45 minutes three times a day but lately I’m not getting that.
For 12 months and over, I do a morning nap at 10 and an afternoon nap at 3. I only have one in this age group right now and she is 17 months. The nap officially lasts for an hour but she always sleeps longer than that and I never wake her. Once she slept over 4 hours at her morning nap and then asked to go back “night night” about an hour after she woke up!

My two a day nappers sleep from 9-11am and 1-3pm. Occasionally a little longer. One also takes a third nap from 445-515pm.

My one a day nappers sleep from 12-3... sometimes 4pm.

Ages 16 mo-4 yo sleep from 12ish-2. Very good schedule for them and for me. My 6 mo sleeps when he feels like it which has not been much.

I work in a large center and naptime is from 1-3. This is a good schedule and most of my kids do still nap for at least half this time. A few of them wake up early but will sit or lie quietly on their cots until I turn the lights on.

My newly 1 sleeps 9:15-10 or 10:30 and then goes back down again at 12 or 12:30 for a longer nap, usually until about 2-2:30. Everyone else naps 12-2ish. I never wake a sleeping child.

Babies nap at 8:30-9am for an hour and afternoon nap is 1-3pm. Sometimes the kids go down earlier depending on mood and whether I think they need a bit extra sleep. Some kids who are transitioning to one nap go down from 12-3pm.
