To alter nap would you do this?

My daughter's first birthday is on Sunday and after we set the plans she changed her naptimes to be exactly during the time frame of the party. So, I was planning on waking her earlier and putting her down for a nap earlier for the party. Is that a good idea, or would it make her miserable?

  • She's going to be so excited during the party that she won't even want to sleep! Just keep her moving and she'll sleep great that night. You can get her back on her regular schedule the next day. If you do want to wake her up earlier, she may not take an earlier nap. Her body will still be on the same clock and will know when she's supposed to lay down. Hope this helps!
