Should you follow sleepy cues, awake time or the clock for naps?
Another question! For naps, what is more important? Routine times (ex. 9, 12, 3 every day)? Timing (ex. every 3 or so hours)? Or reading signals (waiting for a yawn or rubbing of eyes)?
It all depends on your baby’s age. Check out our age by stage sleep chart here: https://childsleepscience.wordpress.com/…/common-age-by…/Generally before 5/6 months you should be watching cues and limiting awake time to ~2 hours stretching to ~3 hours at the end of the day for babies closer to 6 months. After 5/6 months most babies will have a regular wake time and can nap by the clock.
