If you have been reading Mommy News Blog in the past months, you know that one of our favorite guest writers is Elizabeth Pantley. Elizabeth is a raved author, educator, speaker and most importantly a mother of four. She understands the frustration that parents go through- including the daily fights to get your little one to have a relaxing and restful nap.
It’s not just baby and toddler (and preschooler) that needs those quiet moments in the afternoon, but mom and dad too. If you are anything like me when nap time comes around- I’m MORE than ready. I need those moments of peace just as much as he does. Time to turn the brain off and just take a few minutes to myself. Of course those minutes can get chopped down here and there when I’m constantly having to go to his room and quiet him.
So if you are doing the “it’s time to take a nap” routine every day and making naptime a time of dread for both mom and child- then I suggest you grab a copy of Elizabeth’s new book The No-Cry Nap Solution: Guaranteed Gentle Ways to Solve All Your Naptime Problems from Amazon or your local public or mommy group library.
