View Full Version : Does it really matter where they sleep in the day?
Just brought Jacob back from being weighed and put him down on is playgym. Went to the kitchen to sort some bottles and when I came back he was dozing off. I picked him up and put him in his cot. He screamed blue murder for about 15 minutes before I gave up and brought him back downstairs. Put him back on his gym and within 5 minutes he is asleep. Think I am going to leave him this time.
He will nap in his cot during the day, but obviously not this afternoon. I will never understand the reasoning that goes on in that little brain. I suppose I am in for a lifetime of this having a boy:lol: :rolleyes:
I really don't think it matters, as Theo still sleeps at night, no matter where he naps..
He mainly naps in his pram though, as we're always out.
Maybe it would matter more if the baby had sleep problems, but if not, well if he is happy sleeping on his mat, I'd leave him to it TBH :smile:
My LO never sleeps in his cot during the day but sleeps in his pram, the car seat on his play mat and he has even been known to fall asleep on his changing mat before now!
i doubt it - little c prefers his play mat/gym thing for a snooze
Isabel sleeps where she likes! If I notice that she is getting tired I will take her upstairs to her cot, but if she should just fall asleep in her swing, pushchair, on her gym etc I will leave her there. I never pick her up if she has fallen asleep in the daytime as she will wake up and all hell would break loose!
What Joanna said. If I get to her before she has conked out I will put her in her cot but if not I shall leave her to it. It always goes wrong if I try and move her and we end up with inconsolable screaming and I have to get her up in the end.
So long as he is getting enough sleep (doesn't appear overtired) then it really doesn't matter where he snoozes.
if we're at home then 9/10 Leila's picked up and put in her cot - purely because Ruby will undoubtedly wake her up and cut short her nap which = mucked up feeding the next time round as she will fall asleep half way through her bottle. Also she hasn't had a full nap so the 40 winks has taken the edge off her tiredness but not completely satisfied her therefore within 45 minutes she's tired again IYSWIM!????? so yes, will put her in her peaceful nursery so that she can get as long a nap as she wants (or as long a nap as her mummy deigns!)
Elena nearly always napped during the day on her play gym or in her pram (or in my arms if I was feeling indulgent). I never put her in her crib for naps.
I think to start with I just wanted her to distinguish between where she naps & where she sleeps for longer periods. It was also easier, as she'd often fall asleep under her play gym. It suited here & so I never saw a reason to change it.
nope, joshua has to play with something while he's dozing off, so he actually falls asleep quite a lot under his gym, bless him
Nah, let sleeping babies lie. Night time is cot time, but I don't think it is so important when it's just a nap
I don't think it matters. I think Niamh must've been about 8 weeks when I started putting her in her cot for her daytime naps. Before that I just let her sleep where she fell asleep - bouncy chair or playgym.
I don't think it matters. Jack will only sleep in his cot or will fall asleep for a short time in his pram if we are out all day and I wish he would/could just fall asleep where ever.
Nah, I don't think it matters,
Conor used to hate being put down for his afternoon nap, so I'd almost always make sure we were out in the car or pram so he'd drop off then.
Now he's older I do tend to make sure he's in his cot for his naps, but thats because he settles best there.
I dont think it matters in the daytime, alfie at the mo is currently asleep on the floor near me with his head on a pillow, this is where he sleeps alot in the day when im on here. He also takes his pillow downstairs ans falls asleep when watching TV
At bedtime though he always goes in his room
