Health Tip: Taking Fewer Naps

(HealthDay News) -- Has your doctor suggested taking fewer naps? Or are you ready to wean a child from napping?

The National Sleep Foundation suggests how:

  • Don't expect to accomplish the deed overnight. Napping isn't an all-or-nothing proposition. An occasional nap is to be expected.
  • Turn nap time into quiet time. Allow for a period of calm, such as by reading or listening to quiet music.
  • If necessary, move bedtime earlier to adjust for a lack of daytime sleep.
