When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Take a Nap

No Cry Nap Solution How to Get Baby or Toddler to NapIf only Elizabeth Pantley would accept my offer to come live with me, I could hear her helpful and calming advice all day long.  Maybe her next release will be an affirmation CD for stressed-out parents.

Pantley’s The No-Cry Nap Solution: Guaranteed Gentle Ways to Solve All Your Naptime Problems
is another winner–combining research-based information about children’s sleep needs with practical and gentle advice and Pantley’s own unique supportive perspective for parents.

Congresswoman Barbara Jordan once said, “Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.” That woud be lovely, but I would content myself with just my household.

Without enough rest, children become cranky and frustrated and do not get the downtime necessary to process the day’s experiences. Pantley has the answer–or answers, rather, because every nap challenge and napper (or no napper, as the case may be) is different.

Whether you have an infant who will only sleep in arms or a toddler who won’t slow down and take a break, Pantley has a section that addresses your needs.

I am using Pantley’s “hush hour” suggestion for my daughter who dropped her nap just after she turned two, but would get overtired and melt down around dinner time.  We create a nap nest and listen to calming music during her baby brother’s afternoon nap.  The early evening has become a lot more pleasant and twice she actually fell asleep.

Thank you, Elizabeth Pantley.
