Naomi's nap time...

You know, before I delivered my baby, everyone has been warning me about tough, sleepless nights. No one mentioned to me about day naps are causing just as much grief!

To my surprise putting Naomi to sleep at night was a lot easier than making her sleeping in the day. Naomi seldom sleep long, and hard to be settled to take her nap. I read from the books, magazines and articles that baby at this age would need 15 to 16 hours of sleep a day, and about 4 to 5 hours in the day and 11 hours at night... Luckily Naomi normally take about 12 to 13 hours of sleep at night.

Everyday I have to think of new tricks to make her sleep. Today, what work was making funny face before putting her down to sleep. Yesterday was sing songs as loud as I could... sigh, what's tomorrow?

I have friends who would take their child out, put her in the car and drive around until she fell asleep. They would did that every day!
I'm not an adherent of extreme measures to have a child sleep.
I found it helpful to gently hold my daughter in my arms at a time when I knew she was tired, then after a few minutes I would place her in the crib.
Now, I laid my child face down because when she was face up she would look around the room and not fall asleep. There's controversy about which way a child is laid down.
Then, I would rub her back until she fell asleep. If she squirmed too much, I would simply hold her gently in place and say sleep now.
After a week, she would go down easily.
But, I also found that the word parent means "no sleep" (smile).
