Is it better to take lots of little naps or to try to stay up to get on new time zone when travelling far?

Is it better to take lots of little naps or to try to stay up to get on new time zone when travelling far?

No data: No clear answer to your question. My guess is staying up and not napping is more likely to get you back on track quicker, but if necessary a nap probably won't hurt. ...Read more

Helping a friend: A great place to start is to think about how your friend's behavior is impacting you? Are you worried, do you spend less time together, have you noticed his functioning decline. Ask him permission to share your observations and let him know in your own words you are looking out for him. ...Read more

Away with guilt!: Many people find a power nap (eve if you don't completely fall asleep) of about 15 minutes helpful to re-charge them for the rest of the day. If you sleep for a long period of time you can wake up groggy. Normal guilt is when you go against your value system and are getting feedback. Neurotic guilt is excessive, and hopefully that's not your case. ...Read more

I want efficiently use my daily time therefore want to decrease my night sleep to 6 hrs and to add may be 30 min nap in afternoon. What you advice?

Need 7-8 hours: Most people need 7-8 hours of sleep a day (although many are not getting that much). Within limits it does not seem to matter if it is all at night, or some of it is through a nap. You are aiming for 6 1/2 hours, which really is not enough. Not getting enough time in bed makes people tired and sleepy and reduces their cogntive ability. ...Read more

My 6.5 months old is switching naps. If he takes 2 bed time is smooth. Bedtime rough when he needs 3

My 6.5 months old is switching naps. If he takes 2 bed time is smooth. Bedtime rough when he needs 3

Common at this age: A lot of babies will transition gradually from 3 naps to 2 right about your baby's age. The best advice i can give you is to try to gently encourage your baby to move to 2 naps on all but the toughest days. Try to fight through that end of the day crankiness/tiredness: the sooner he/she gets used to that, the faster the transition will be complete, and the easier bedtime will be. Good luck! ...Read more

My 15 month old son has long frequent night wakings and never slept through night. He takes one good midday nap and goes to bed at the same time?

My 15 month old son has long frequent night wakings and never slept through night.  He takes one good midday nap and goes to bed at the same time?

Sleep routines: All adults & kids wake in the night but most learn to resettle & most don't remember the event.An infant that never learned to start sleep alone is unlikely to do so in the night. Day naps should be limited to no > 2hrs or the kid can flip his day/night pattern.Shaping a bedtime routine that allows baby to unwind, listen to a story, but settle in bed alone can also improve this problem. ...Read more
