According to sleep research, and motherly experience, the length and the quality of naps affect nighttime sleep.
All babies are different, but generally, the best nap times are as follows:
* If baby takes three naps: midmorning/early afternoon/early evening
* If baby takes two naps: midmorning/early afternoon
* If baby takes one nap: early afternoon
Naps should happen immediately when your baby shows signs of tiredness.
