I was reading a blog post from The Baby Gizmo Compay that I subscribe to on Facebook. http://blog.babygizmo.com/2014/01/child-ready-give-naps/ and it made me wonder if I should still be pushing the naps for my 5 year old. My daughter is in full day kindergarten and is in bed by 830-900pm every night because she gets up at 6am every morning. On the weekends we sometimes let her stay up later. But there are some days when she falls asleep on her own on both school an non school nights. And then there are those days she shows signs of needing a nap. Days when I use the old “because I said so!” Because she fights it like crazy.
My little guy is only 3 and still takes naps 95% of the time. If he misses a nap… oh boy! Mommys in for it and Mr. D is off to bed early! So back to my question… at what point did you give up the fight for naps?
