My son is going to be 4 months n not he only naps for 20mins during the day. Iam burned out ladies. What can I do to get him to nap longer
I let my son sleep until he wakes up on his own organically. I do not wake him unless it's absolutely necessary. Sometimes he'll only nap an hour, sometimes it's 3 hours. I let his body decide how long of a nap he needs.
My daughter wakes up at 11 a.m. and goes to sleep at 11 p.m. she either takes two small naps one of which is in the car or she takes one four hour nap in the middle of the day bear in mind this is extremely recent! She was preemie and had a lot of other issues. Which caused her to sleep barely at all.
My 3 year old will sometimes nap. If she does it is usually on days here brother has Preschool so from 12pm till 1:30
My 3 and 4 year old are in bed by 8pm my oldest who is 9 8:30
My daughter is 18m, she naps for about 2h in the afternoon. Right now I work but before when I was home the routine was we would get up and have breakfast, do some structured/educational play for a bit while she had good attention get dressed & ready, quick snack, go to free play groups, library, groceries, playground, etc depending on the day but I’d try to do one outing. Then come home have lunch, nap, quick snack, outside time or if the weather was bad bake and put on music and dance, if she was really cranky we’d watch a show. By then dad was home from work! During nap I’d try to prep supper and do chores for a few minutes then have a coffee and relax.
