Do you remember when you had to take a nap? When it was mandatory in your day? In my Pre-K group, you would get a designated pad accompanied with your favorite blanket or stuffed animal and from noon to 1:30, I had a required snooze…Ah, the good ol’ days.

Don’t you wish someone would make you nap for a designated amount of time every day now?! As we are all more sleep deprived than maybe we want to fully admit, this would be a welcome requirement to my life.

Now, you’re the nap patrol.

Here’s the rub, though - I’ve never known human beings to be more opportunistic than babies who are on the hunt to snatch a nap. Do babies sleep when you want them to? Hardly. Do they sleep in weird positions, at weird times, especially when you REALLY don’t want them to? 100% Yes.


Our Nap Life design is created to remind you that your baby leads that life – napping when it suits them, and definitely not on your schedule (hard as you may try). We aren’t advocates of the old adage, “sleep when the baby sleeps.” Because we’d never get anything done otherwise, BUT we are advocates of taking those baby snuggles on occasion and remembering that one day in the not so distant future they’ll be snoozing when and where you want them to. If only we could all live the Nap Life!
