hi how many hours does a 13.5 month old need to sleep for a day - my little girl all of a sudden does not want to sleep in the afternoon. Is this a phase? she only sleeps for about an hour in the morning - wakes at 5am sleeps from 8 - 9 and then is awake till 7pm and then i really battle to get her down! seems i have to rock her to sleep in her pram and then move her into her cot - is this bad

This is very common with highly intelligent infants, so do not try and force her to sleep. You will lose the battle. She sounds like she is getting enough sleep for her needs.
