  • Just make sure that she can't get into trouble and lay down.

  • I guess it depends on the age. If she's a crawler or walker I'd definately make sure all doors and gates to unsafe areas are closed or put up. Whenever I need to lay down for a bit I always lay on the couch (bed is too comfy and I'll pass right out, lol). I make sure they have something to do to keep them busy and make sure things are put up. When they were little they had access to the livingroom only when I'd lay down.

  • It's not a dumb question. I don't see anything wrong with you resting with the lights down or off with your daughter playing quietly. Just make sure that there is nothing that will be dangerous for her. You will be right there.

    By the way, I hope your headache is better now. It wasn't a dumb question either. Hope you feel better. Have a nice night.
