Re: Napping At Daycare

I worked at a daycare in the infant room 0-12mos. We would let the babies be on their own schedules. We had some that would only go to sleep swaddled, some - one - that would only go to sleep nursing (my son), and others that just had to be put in the bed. It is a requirement, at least in Arkansas, that children not be allowed to sleep anywhere but in a crib at that age, not in toys, etc. We had one little girl that didn't take naps at all at home, but would sleep in 3-4 hour stretches with us.

I hope that the new dc meets your expectations. Don't expect it to happen in the first week, maybe even the first month, but your lo will settle in.

Re: Napping At Daycare

Trust me- the caregivers want the child to be well rested as much as you want them to! So any tips that may transfer well from home is always appreciated!
As others have said, be prepared for a transition period which varies from child to child, and by contributing factors.
They will more than likely be worn out by the constant stimulation from their environment, peers and teachers, and babies generally listen to their bodies.
I just wanted to add, that don't be suprised if after a routine is developed, it seems to fall apart again. That's normal as well as the baby grows, and communication with the caregiver is the best way to get through it
