It's no secret that we at The Baby Sleep Site are dedicated to helping parents help their children to gently fall asleep independently, and take long restorative naps. If your little one is waking up in the night or mid-way through their nap, chances are they need to let go of sleep associations or adjust their schedules to combat over-tiredness. Learning to sleep independently and having an ideal sleep schedule are two of the most important factors to helping your child get the sleep they need.

We get nap questions really frequently from our clients - particularly these three questions: How many naps does my baby need? How long should my baby's naps be? Well, we're answering all of them in today's article. How many naps your baby takes will depend on their age and unique development. All babies develop at their own unique rates. How long your baby's naps are also depend on age but once your baby is past 4 months old, we want at least one nap that's an hour or longer.
