Ask any mom, and they'll tell you some days nap time goes smoothly, while on other days it can be a battle.
Naps are important in order for children to get the rest they need and to stay healthy.
Doctors recommend starting a routine nap schedule once your baby is six to nine months old.
To get them to nap every day, you have to be consistent.
Doctors recommend putting your child down for a nap at roughly the same time in roughly the same place every day.
Children usually stop napping between three and five years of age, but they still need down time, or quiet time each afternoon, even if they don't fall asleep.
Kids are probably ready to give up their naps if they can stay awake all day and don't become grouchy around dinner time.
