Been told that power napping is bad for you. one should stay awake until bed time?

Napping

Caffeine
Not sure abut the context. In general napping unless you're < 5 or > 65 years old should not be necessary. However, we are a society that does not sleep enough hours and napping is MUCH MUCH safer than using medication including caffeine. This being said, if you suffer from insomnia, napping can be very harmful in disrupting sleep cycle. Power nap is 15 minutes or less to avoid deeper sleep.

3 mos baby is sleeping good at nite, but fights nap time& barely sleeps how many naps=length?

Great nights!

Eating
It's hard to recommend anything that might sacrifice your nights. Preserve that no matter what. For the naps, start a strict daytime feeding schedule of every 2 -3 hours. Force the nap-time, but don't allow the naps to be more than an hour at a time. This will allow your child to get some rest, but hopefully it will not affect your nights.

I'm 19 years old and I sleep 16 hours at a time and I also need naps. Could I have hypersomnia?

Definitely

Excessive_daytime_sleepiness
You only need 8-10 hours of sleep at the most in a 24 hour period. If you sleep that much it does not leave much time to get anything else accomplished. You should talk to your doctor as they are many physical conditions that could cause increased need for sleep or you could be suffering from depression

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

Baby
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!

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

Naps
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.

Is there a health risk to infants caused by sleeping in swings, bouncer, seats for extended periods of time- long naps or overnight?

Depends on situation

Naps
Some infants can look fine when awake but will turn their head, fold their airway & stop breathing after falling asleep. This can be fatal.It is most likely to occur in the first months before neck strength improves, but is more worrisome if the kid is sick, a former premi or has a neurologic condition. Please clear this with your PCP for individual needs.

Dr. Joseph A. Mele answered:

Can thinking about a person all the time disturb your sleeping habits ? I don't take long naps anymore and wake up through the night.

Certainly Can

Sleep
This type of preoccupation can happen at any age, but is more often found in youth. The insomnia should slowly get better, but if it is not, is lasting weeks or even months, and it is interfering with you normal routine, it may be worth discussing this with your doctor.

My baby is 6 mo is there such thing as sleeping TOO much during the night? She sleeps 12 hrs but lately her day time naps have been shorter..

Lucky mom

Digestive_system
As long as a kid is eating well enough during the day to sustain a normal growth rate, an extended 8 or more hour sleep period at night is fine. Baby is likely waking at least once & resettling like adults do. The babies digestive system has a good 12+ hours of material from which to support the babies sleep, without re-feeding. Enjoy the pattern.

My 6 month old does not want to take naps anymore. She is happy most of the time when she's up but I'm worried she's not getting enough sleep.

Any symptoms ???

Naps
Most infants have a brain driven sleep center that will keep them remarkably refreshed on 5-10 minute cat naps if they don't take formal scheduled naps. Sleep deprivation will usually lead to a crabby kid who is a bit more sickly than her peers & less interested in sustained play. If baby sleeps well at night for > 9 hours,feeds well,plays well & keeps you running, she's sneeking cat naps.
