I often meet parents who say their child doesn't nap and it's one of the major reasons that nighttime sleep doesn't go well either. Ensuring your child is getting enough age-appropriate daytime sleep is a key component of good nighttime sleep... so how do you know?
First, newborns up to 3 months of age should be taking 4-5 naps per day, babies 3-6 months 3-4 naps, babies 6-11 months 2-3 naps and babies 12 months and older usually take 1 nap per day. Naps should be around an hour in length.
When we sleep, our brains and bodies are processing information, organizing and storing information while our bodies are growing new cells and repairing tissue, building immunity and restoring energy.
But you still say your baby won't nap...well then schedule a free call with me to discuss your situation. We can put together a strategy so that your child is well rested and you have the piece of mind that your little one is safe, healthy and growing inside and out!
So why suffer through another sleepless night? Contact me today to get started on the path to a great night's sleep for your entire family.
