Napping is as important for the child as it is for the parent as you both need time each day to recharge your batteries. It is a time your child needs to rest his body as well as his mind and it gives you the time to get some work done or rest yourself. If you have ever had a toddler in your home, you know how cranky they can get if they have not had their day time nap. I know some moms who can get pretty cranky as well if their toddler does not get that much needed sleep. If you have ever heard that growth happens while kids sleep, that is true in a round about way. Growing takes lots of energy and calories, and if your child is not rested properly and have adequate calories, they can have health issues. Most toddlers tend to take their naps in the afternoon, but this varies from child to child. Take cues from your child when they are getting fussy, staring off into space and giving you other cues they are ready to lay down. If your child attends a day care facility, check with them on when the naps are scheduled so you can have the same schedule at home. It is also suggested you make nap time inviting for your child as they are more likely to lay down and rest if it is a pleasurable experience. One way that is working all over the world are the cute and cuddly nap mats from Jim Henson’s Pajanimals.
Pajanimals Will Make Nap Time Fun
If you have tried to get a little one to settle down for a nap, it may have been tricky. Sometimes it can take a lot of convincing and cajoling before you can get your child to actually lay down and make an attempt at resting. Many parents and caregivers do not realize that although sleeping at nap time is optimal, resting will work well too. When your busy bee is snuggled up and their body is at rest, they are able to refresh their bodies almost, if not quite as well as if they were to sleep.
