If only I could take a nap daily!

  • My son has not napped since he was 2 years old. You are lucky. My son is high energy all day and has never needed much sleep. He is up at 6 am and asks to be put to bed at 8pm. He crashes when his head hits the pillow.

  • Good for you. My kids no longer nap, unless we are driving in the car at like 4:00 in the morning or at midnight.

  • My 5 year old son, will not take a nap unless he gets to sleep in bed with me. Being pregnant I try to take advantage of when my 20 month old daughter takes naps, so when my son isn't in school, I usually have him lay down next to me, and even though he fights going down, he's out in no time and usually sleeps for a good 2 or 3 hours.
