  • I used to take a nap every day before my youngest was born (even when I wasn't pregnant with him) and it wasn't when my then youngest was napping. She would just watch TV and I would go lie down in my room for an hour. Now I have her (now 4) and the baby (4 months) and I rarely nap. The baby sleeps whenever, the 4yo hasn't napped in years and any time I try to lie down the baby wants something. I think I've had 1 nap in the last month and that was when my husband was home and I was sick. Mostly I just suck it up no matter how tired I am.

  • I can't. I'm always thinking about what I should be doing instead.

  • My 4 years young daughter never takes naps anymore :( Ever since she was about 2 I would love for her to take a nap once in awhile I would nap right with her.

  • I can rarely do it, but it sure is delicious when I can manage it, and I can actually sleep!

  • I don't need to take naps. When my child naps I get things done around the house.

  • I've always had a hard time sleeping when it's light out. I only really sleep during the day when I am really sick.

  • I never did that at all. There is too much to get done.

  • I couldnt either. Too much to be done. Only if I were really sick could I nap.
