Babies need a lot of sleeping. This is the reason why they do several naps along the day. But, sometimes, we do things that are not the best we can do to help our children to have a good nap and be awake and calm the rest of the day.
Check in the following list if you do some of the things that are a “don’t” for nap time:
-Don’t rush in the room where the baby is sleeping. Babies do a lot of noises when they are getting asleep. Wait a moment before checking on your baby, unless you think he needs immediate attention.
-Don’t wake up baby when he falls asleep in the car seat or the buggy. Put the car seat in the floor, never in a table or a couch.
However, the car seat or the buggy is not a place to sleep overnight. You must place your baby on the firm mattress of a crib to sleep the whole night.
-Don’t rely on naps during the daily walk or in the car. They are OK, occasionally, but these are not moments for napping. If necessary, rearrange your schedule to avoid that naps are on the go.
