  • Yes! I take naps when the kids do and don't feel bad about it at all. There is always time for everything else and they need a well rested mom. Besides I have insomnia a lot and sometimes need that nap.

  • I did when my 2.5 yr old was a newborn - I had to wake him up to eat every 3 hours (preemie), so I had to take sleep where I could get it. I think I've done it a handful of times since when I was sick and he was napping.

  • I do, for an hour and if you feel like taking a nap your body needs it, have some coffee or tea after.

  • I'm three months pregnant, so some days I have no choice. It's either that for fall asleep at the sink doing dishes.
    I take them when the kids go down for a nap and since I have no ability to wake myself up otherwise I sleep as long as they do.

  • I wish my kids were still int he NAPS phase. I stay up way way too late. Then the kids wake up early. So if I could talk them into taking a nap, I might. LOL. I sleep in on the weekends when my husband doesn't work. I certainly don't begrudge anyone a nap.
