View Full Version : Nap Situation?

05-21-2014, 12:05 PM
Hi all,
Sorry if this has been covered before, I tried searching for it but couldn't find anything. I'm just wondering where everyone's daycare kids nap. Do you have a room designated for naps? Or do you separate the kids and put one in each room?
I was thinking about keeping them all in the same room, then I can watch them on the video monitor. I don't have the space though to have a nap room!
I'm sure there's pros and cons to both ways. So if anyone feels like sharing, I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

I have a nap room (spare bedroom). I do however have one or sometimes two that sleep in the laundry room. I usually put the fussy sleeper(s) in the laundry room. I don't use my upstairs for daycare as that is off limits.

one child in each of my bedrooms in pack and plays and the oldest one on the play room floor on a nap mat

My spare bedroom is also my nap room, change room, trampoline room and extra toy storage room. Right now it fits 2 playpens and 2 cots for naptime. I have one that sleeps in the hallway though because he wakes up before everyone else. I prefer them all in one room so I can supervise them from upstairs via the video baby monitor.

Separate rooms. One in each of our bedrooms and one in a crib in the daycare playroom. I see benefits to both ways (it's a lot of work to get them to 5 separate rooms). I think they learn how to tune each other out in one room...I've seen that with them in separate rooms but I think they sleep better this way, especially when a new one is adjusting and doesn't sleep well. That bit of space and wall helps!

I have a video monitor that covers 4 rooms and a regular monitor in the 5th room.

Our diningroom is also a main floor play area and is used for naps for anyone on mats. Those in playpens are in upstairs bedrooms - have 4 so one child per room as needed.
