QOTW: How many naps?
8
Sat, 08-11-2012 - 8:23am

I thought I would try to bring back "QOTW" to spur some more activity on the board.  Up this week - how many naps is baby taking now?

Ali Claire usually takes two naps a day - one in the morning from about 9-11, and another in the afternoon from about 2-4.  She varies so and if she doesn't end up taking two longer naps, or if they are a little earlier (especially the afternoon nap), she will end up with a third little cat nap around 5 p.m.

Rj basically does his own thing. I can't think of one specific time that I know for sure that he will take a nap. He does take one in the morning and one in the evening though. He's just so fast and always on the go, he prob belives if he nap he's gonna miss something. He's wokeee right now, up eating hashbrowns so maybe he will take a nap once his belly is full.

Ugh, I wish Connor would have "nap times"! He usually takes about 3 cat naps a day. And by cat naps, I mean that they are usually no longer than 30 minutes each. I feel like I've hit the jackpot when he actually sleeps for an hour or more at a time, lol. But, he does sleep well at night, so I guess I can't complain too much about his lack of napping.

Ella takes 2-3 a day. Sometime mid morn/day and one in the later afternoon and maybe an extra short one mixed in. I just go with the flow!

For me one if im lucky at around 11ish. However she is normally in bed by 7:30 and sleeps all the way until 6:30am so I cant complain.

Dillon is also around two to three naps a day and they can vary in length from 30 mins to 2.5 hours, you just never know! He's not sleeping well at night right now, probably that big tooth that I can see bulging his gums :smileysad:

Mayhem takes three, or sometimes only two.  His longest nap is mid-day.

Jaxon takes 2-3 usually. One around 10, one around 2, and one around 5. They're anywhere from 30 minutes to 1-2 hours. He still doesn't sttn... still wants to nurse at night. Goes to bed around 8:30, wakes anywhere from 10:30-12:30, then gain around 2:30-3, and gets up for the day anywhere from 6-8.

I'm one tired momma...

My son was like that except he would not nap! (& cried a LOT) He never sttn till prob 10 months& even then it was uncommon. He still fights bedtime now & has weeks where he gets up wanting in our bed (he is almost 4!) Not to say Jaxon is destined for this. Just that you arent alone!
