  • Whatever she needs to do at the moment, if she needs a nap, then go for it, the rest can wait.

  • For me it would depend on the sort of night I'd had with the baby.

  • I TOTALLY napped. if you have an easy baby where the rest of things can get done while she's contently playing and happy then do whatever you want - I wasn't so lucky.. i HAD to nap

  • I don't think there are set rules for that stuff. Have you checked the manual? LOL! Just kidding. Do what you need.

  • depends on the parent. I cant take naps, I wake up grumpier, so I just enjoy the quiet and do something for me. (oh and I like to clean when my kids are awake

  • I used the time when my kids napped to get things done, there was always so much to do around the house. Really, though, it's whatever works best for you and your family. If I napped when my kids did there would have been no way I would have gotten everything my family needed me to do done.

  • Nap. It's an addition to the 5 hours a night I get because my 6mo habitually wakes up 3x a night. If he and the 2yo actually nap at the same time, I'm gonna take advantage of it.

  • When ds was a baby I napped. As he got older and slept through the night I did other things
