Child development is not only seen in terms of food intake, but also balanced with patterns of daily activities such as napping. Napping is very important for child development because it affects the growth of the brain and body (physically). Because during sleep there are growth hormones released by the child’s body.
For this reason, make it a habit for children / toddlers to undergo a nap routine. Most of the mothers complained because their children did not want to be invited to take a nap. Because children / toddlers are actively exploring. For mothers, they need to know their children’s habits if they want to take a nap like being carried, given a pat of love, hugging their dolls / rolling, listening to music and so on. But there are also young children who take a nap on their own without any sleep.
Most young children wake up while sleeping crying / fussy. That is because the child / toddler cannot put himself to sleep and the mother has to put her to sleep again with a bedtime delivery before her child falls asleep. Like before taking a nap, give a pat of love. So when the child / toddler gets up in the middle of his sleep, give him another pat of love. That way the child / toddler will go back to sleep and wake up not crying or fussing because he has enough sleep.
Inviting a child / toddler to take a nap is not as easy as imagined. But a small child if you want to sleep actually he has shown signs such as starting to rub the eyes, before noon or after a fussy lunch, if the road often falls, the mood is slightly different and others.
Early toddlers are experiencing severe language, cognitive, and physical development. But still need a break / nap to maximize its development. Try to take your child’s nap no later than 16.00 because it will disrupt the hours of sleep at night.
So that children can take a nap comfortably, create a calm environment, avoid the noise.
That is the benefit of napping for children / toddlers, hopefully parents can find out how important it is to put a child to sleep during the day. Hopefully this review can be useful.
