☄”While it is socially limiting to plan ahead and protect naps, it is liberating to have a well-rested child who never fusses or cries during the day at home or in public.”☄Dr Marc Weissbluth
I couldn’t agree more with this statement! Honoring the need for daytime sleep is so important…
Sleep in not a luxury in children, it’s a necessity!!! Below is a chart to give you an idea of the daytime sleep needs of babies & toddlers. Nap length varies of course depending on your child’s sleep needs, but a good restorative nap is generally between 1.5-3hrs. ?**The time awake between naps is actually the most important part**?…when babies stay up too long they become overtired! Making it much harder for them to settle, fall asleep and stay peacefully asleep.
