Naps are also one of the most often heard pieces of advice you get as a new parent (after, don't blink it goes so fast). But I never was able to settle into the "sleep when he sleeps" rule for at least two reasons.
1. Uh, I need to get shit done.
2. I am not a good napper.
I so very rarely wake up from a nap well rested. Nine times out of ten I wake up more disoriented than I was when I went to sleep. It is a struggle because it feels so good to cozy into my bed in broad daylight. Feels so deliciously wrong. But whenever I nap I know I am risking feeling like I got hit by a frying pan.
M is an excellent power napper. He will take a ten minute nap! That just seems outrageous.
I usually decide based on how tired I am. Because sometimes getting even a handful of winks is worth feeling groggy.
