Do you put your LO('s) down for a nap -before- or -after- lunch?

what are there ages, and when do you eat lunch in your house?

  • The kids eat lunch at 11:30-12:00 (They get up at 7am). My oldest (two) doesn't take a nap anymore unless we go somewhere in the middle of the day. The car just puts them both out if they're even the slightest bit tired. However, my daughter (one) goes down for a nap at about 12:30. I've always put them down for a nap after lunch, so they're sleeping on a full stomach. I just always felt better knowing they weren't hungry when they were napping.

  • mine is 3, it depends on how tired he is but i at least try to make sure he has a snack before nap time. Nap time is usually from 11~2 because majority of the time he'll play for an hr or 2.

  • After. We eat between 11:30 and 12pm and then go to nap right after. They are 2 1/2 and 1 1/2yrs old. Sometimes my 7 month old takes a nap with them and he eats at that time too.
