Nap time

14 May

“Research suggests that physical and mental development takes place when kids sleep-both at night and during the day,”

I have personally seen, my neighbor kids- the 1st kids sleep throughout night and take 3-4 hrs nap during his first 4 years. The 2nd child, not a good sleeper. The 1st child is very bright and tall. The second child is active, not as smart as the 1st child. I learned this when my daughter is 5 year.
Every child needs to sleep more, play more and eat more.

Happy Napping

Do: Aim to stick to the same nap routine each day, but be flexible on special occasions.

Don’t: Wait until your child is asleep to put him down in his crib or bed.

Do: Encourage your baby to sleep in her own crib or bed for naps after she’s 2 months old.

Don’t: Keep your child up too late at night, which will interfere with his daytime sleep.

Do: Keep her room as quiet and dark as possible.
