To wake or not to wake

We've all been there. It's time to go to the doctor and the baby's only been asleep for 30 minutes, or the toddler is going to nap in 2 hours and you want the baby to nap again with the toddler, or you're second guessing if the baby keeps sleeping he/she may not go back to sleep tonight!? Sound familiar? This is one reason why we love having babies on predictable, age appropriate rhythms so you (and most importantly them), can know what to expect next! This will also help to plan around all of those other things you need to do in life. The hardest one for me now is waking my 1 year old when he wants to keep napping past 2 hours in the morning so he can still get his afternoon nap in!
