Re: what do you do during naptime??

I am so jelous of the mamas of babes who take long naps. DD will very occasionaly nap for a little more than an hour, but it's about 45 minutes on average, long enough for me to check some email, throw in a load of laundry, maybe unload the dishwasher.

Re: what do you do during naptime??

Lately since this pg has me wiped out I take a nap too. Normally if I'm not tired I just read or do something relaxing to me. Nap time is my time to relax too.

Re: what do you do during naptime??

DS only naps if he's on me, either on my back or attached to the boob, so I'm limited in what I can do during naptime. I usually surf the web (DS or TBW) and check email. Sometimes I'll nap with the little guy. If I've already brought the laundry up, I'll fold that. I've not been very productive since the little guy came to town. . .

Re: what do you do during naptime??

Usually each day's naptime is scheduled w/a whole list of "to do"s for me. Common ones are phone calls, making soap, tidying up, any cleaning the involves spraying surfaces, beginning supper prep (chopping veggies, making salad, cutting meat, etc). I try to sit down for a few minutes as well but usually don't have time.

Re: what do you do during naptime??

Im usually here on DS and I spent time schooling my 3 1/2 yr old. He loves to have just "mommy time" and why not learn at the same time! LOL
Sometimes I also get dishes done and usually Im just finishing dinner when my 2 yr old wakes up. He usually sleeps about 3 hours every afternoon.

Re: what do you do during naptime??

Naptime, what's that? Seriously? DD gave up naps about 2 weeks ago. She teases me (like today) when she'll grab me and drag me into her room saying she's going "night night". But as soon as I give in to her coaxing to lie down with her, she's up and rearing to go again. It's been very stressful for me. I used to work my business while she was napping. That's been neglected lately...

I usually nap with her. My sleep is all off lately (maybe bc of stress) and I am constantly tired so I embrace the naptime lol

Re: what do you do during naptime??

SLEEP!!! I can only count on about 45 minutes to lay down after I get DD#2 to sleep, 'cuz I have to wake up to pee (gotta love the first trimester!!) If for some reason I can't sleep I'll do dishes or work on laundry and surf the net.

LOL, DD only naps about 45 minutes or so on the weekends when we are home.

I'll usually take a nap with her or either use that time to take a shower.

She has never taken more than a 1 hour nap unless I'm laying down with her.
