This is the one right, we all think babies just sleep all day long and are quite happy to do so but in reality it is not so true all the time. Certainly in the first few weeks this may be the case but as they get older, the weeks turn into months and now your new-born is say 8 weeks old, perhaps she is not sleeping as easily as she did even just even a week ago.
Babies change so fast, this first year is when they do the most growing, developing and learning ever. Just 1 week may make all the difference in sleep and perhaps it is not so easy to get them to nap anymore.
So we know they need sleep but how do we help them along if they are refusing and struggling to fall asleep?
Here I am going to explain some ways for you to try to help support your baby to nap.
There will come a point that I am sure you will feel has come around oh so fast when your child needs to say goodbye to that lovely lunch time nap they are having. Your peaceful couple of hours you had to catch up on your “to do list”, house admin or even just sit down and enjoy a quite cup of hot tea and some lunch is gone and your toddler sleeps no more!
So when does this happen and how do we manage this?
This is such a popular topic I am often asked about, how many naps should my baby be having, when to drop a nap and how to drop that nap? Here in this blog I will explain all about the signs, how to manage the transitions and what next…!
The bain of our lives right! Naps…!
Here in this week’s blog I will explain to you the importance of naps, why the lunch time nap is best to be the longest and how to achieve appropriate nap lengths and what to do when a nap goes pear shaped!
From the day you bring your baby home we see them sleeping, napping and not always at the times that is conducive to our sleep and daily schedule! Very soon your baby will spend more time awake, your days are constantly changing and just when you figured out some sort of routine, boom, something changes and you need to figure it all out again!
