Does Your Baby Seem To Nap Best When They’re Lying On Your Chest? You Are Not Alone! - Pregnancy - 2022

Does your baby seem to nap best when they’re lying on your chest? You are NOT alone! 😴⁣

It’s common for babies to nap on their caregivers, especially when they’re small & when they’re not feeling well as older babies or toddlers.⁣

🙅🏻‍♀️It does not lead to a spoiled baby. ⁣

💁🏿‍♀️It may allow your baby to get a good nap. ⁣

🙅🏼‍♀️It is not your baby manipulating you. ⁣

💁🏾‍♀️It might be comforting for your baby. They are able to hear the familiar sound of your heartbeat. ⁣

🙅🏽‍♀️Is not safe if you are napping too. You need to monitor them. Set yourself up with a television show or a good book that you’ve been wanting to read. ⁣

💁🏻‍♀️They will be outgrown. Many babies outgrow contact naps between 4 & 8 months of age. Though older babies & toddlers usually will find your chest quite comforting if they don’t feel well. ⁣

💤If your baby wants to always nap on you and you prefer that they don’t, you can get them to nap in a crib with patience and consistency. ⁣

Disclaimer: The American Academy of Pediatrics says that the safest place for your baby to sleep is on their back on a firm mattress, without any pillows or blankets, and in close proximity to you. ⁣
