Naptime Confession: I Let My Babies Nap on Me Daily

“That baby is never going to be able to go to sleep without you.”

“Don’t you want to lay him/her down so you can get some things done?”

“So you’ve come to my house to visit during your baby’s naptime. Where are you going to lay him/her down? Did you lug a portable crib? Want me to make him/her a pallet on the floor? I could pluck some chicken feathers and make him/her a nice bed in the laundry room!”

Here’s a link to the story La Leche League’s New Beginnings published in 2007 about my “problem.” E-mail me at if the link fails to produce my astonishing work of genius.


  1. I'm so glad I do not have to worry about things like that any more!

    I learned the more children I had--just let them scream--eventually they will know you are boss and lay down for a nap when you tell them too.

  2. This really is one of your greatest written pieces. Still love it every time I read it!
