When I had my baby 9 years ago, lol They told me to nap when the baby naps. I did that and I think it saved my sanity. Did you get the same advice? Did you listen to it? When they were toddlers did you nap when they did? Or hurry and clean house while they were down? I did both. Napped and cleaned frantically. Now that he is older I can take a nap and he is fine to play by himself. But, I don't nap as much as i would like, lol My DH came home early and is watching him. I think I may go and take a nap:) See you in a few.

  • I was given that advice and it the best I ever got from anyone. I still do it now. If my boys fall asleep, then I am sleeping too. Laundry and dishes and housework are still going to be there when I wake up. I love naps.

  • No I was never given that advice. I was told that I could forget sleepless nights but it never happened.
