For the first 6 months, my daughter slept in the bed with me at night & also napped on me.
Before all the mom experts come out to tell me your not supposed to do that well I did get over it. It was the only way we were both getting sleep & it worked for us.
At her 6-month doctor’s appointment, the doctor strongly recommended I start sleep training. In the long run, it will help her be able to fall asleep on her own.
It was time for some tough love so I made a plan to start with putting her in her crib for just naps than slowly working towards the night sleeping.
To my shock, it only took a week for her to get used to not only napping in her crib but sleeping in it at night. She would cry it out less time than the nights before & now she’s used to it. I really thought my dramatic baby girl was going to take months to get this accomplished.
Now I have so much free time during the day I don’t know what to do with myself. She started taking 3 naps a day, two of which are only a half hour but one is an hour or more now she’s a little older & only takes 2 naps but ill take it.
It’s the greatest feeling to not only have a little bit of me time now but to also watch her become a little more independent.
What do you do when your kids nap?
