    Default Sleep when the baby sleeps!

    I have a 4 week old, born by Caesarian! Just wondering how long did you keep having naps while bub slept? Bub is our first!

    Sometimes I still do, DS is 2. But at least until his day to night clock had switched more. For a couple of months at least I reckon.

    Whenever you feel you need it. My girl was a nightmare for the first 8 weeks, I tried to sleep whenever I could but found it hard to switch off during the day.

    After 8 weeks, she turned into an angel and started sleeping through the night, she's now 8 months and still going.

    Just ride it out, it does get better and easier

    I still find myself having a nap occasionally during the day.

    I didn't nap nearly as much as I should have at first, mostly because he would sleep all day while people were visiting. Get as much sleep as you can, if you feel like you need a nap have one. There's no time limit on it

    whenever i was home alone with my dd and she was sleeping, i would nap - she was a good sleeper, but i was exhausted and could barely keep my eyes open lol. she's 2 now and i sometimes still nap when she does. i work 4 days a week though so only get the chance on weekends really.

    Keep doing it for as long as you can! I did with DD1 for maybe 5 months and it made such a difference. Now that DD2 is here I wish I could, but just isn't possible with a 4yo too

    I do it when I'm not at work and mine is 2yo. It depends on how much I need to do in the day though

    Keep having naps until you have another baby and can't!
