Select nap times that fit your child's schedule. "Think about your baby's day, and try to time his naps logically," says Dr. Deb Lonzer, MD, chair of the department of regional pediatrics for the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. "Watch your baby for about a week and see if each day starts to have a similar pattern. If so, just follow your baby's lead -- but if not, you should select the nap times." However, Dr. Lonzer notes that it is best to aim for both a midmorning and a midafternoon nap for your child to avoid sleeping difficulties at night.
