How many times a day do you nap and for how long?

I take about 3 naps and sleep 2 hours with each nap.

Is that bad? How many naps do you take?

Esma: I'll turn him into a flea. A harmless little flea. Then Ill put that flea in a box. And put that box inside another box. Mail that box to myself. And when it arrives. ILL SMASH IT WITH A HAMMER. Its brilliant, brilliant, brilliant I tell you. Genius I say.
Or to save on postage. Ill poison him with this.

    I have a job. Really cuts into my napping time, but it pays a lot better.

    I take a nap almost everyday at about 3ish for about 1/2hour to an hour. Depends on the day.
  • Options

    I work from home, so every now and again I do take a quick nap (an hour or so at the most). But it's not everyday, and I don't generally feel like I need one.

    Have you been checked for anemia or any other condition that make you so tired?

    I haven't been a big napper up until the last few days, really. Now I sleep for a solid eight or nine hours at night and then can't keep my head up by 9:00 AM. I think I'm about to become a napper whether I want to or not!

    None here also.  Working lady.  I envy anyone who gets to take naps during the work week though.  I sometimes get a hour long nap in on the weekends.  I struggle sleeping at night, so as much as I want a nap on the weekend, I try and limit myself or I won't sleep at all during the night.

    Yes. I am anemic. My Dr. put me on iron pills, but I am still tired all the time.

    I would kill for a nap.  Even if DH offers to watch the kids, which is RARE, they're so loud you can't sleep.  One time, he took the LO out for a few hours and the older one was at school and I napped.  It was glorious!

    I usually try to nap for an hour or two after work, bit only a couple if days a week. I would love more naps, but I just can't do it with the long commute and working.

    DD takes a nap 3-4 times a week around 2:30/3  for about 2 hours.  I usually nap about 1/2 - 1 hour with her.  Before I was on maternity leave I didn't start work until 5, so it's been our routine for a while.

    This!  I go to school full-time and work, so I don't usually have time for napping.  On days off, I always think I'll take a nap, but find other things I could be doing instead.

    I go to bed around 11. I found out I was anemic at the beginning of my pregnancy and my Dr. prescribed me iron pills. But I am still very tired. I asked my Dr. about it and he didn't seem to worried. I thought it was normal until now. I guess not. I do know being anemic makes you very tired, but even taking the iron pills I am still tired.

    BF works overnight, and since entering the 3rd trimester, I don't sleep well without him. So usually I get about 3 hours of sleep a night, and then nap with him for 2-3 hours when he gets home.

    On a rare occasion I will be caught up enough on my work to catch maybe a quick cat nap when DD is napping but that is very rare.

    Over the last couple weeks I have been taking a "mid-morning nap" that lasts a couple hours. I get SO exhausted after I've been up for a few hours that I can't function without a nap most days.

    I nap for at least an hour every day while DS naps (he usually naps for 2-3 hours).  It used to be my time to get things done, but I've been too exhausted for that since first tri.

    When I was pregnant with DS I was working full time so I would only get to nap on the weekends.

    Pregnant =/= Disabled.

    On the weekend, I might nap for an hour or so, especially on Sunday, but lately that's becoming more and more difficult because we have so much to do.

    No naps here unless it's the weekend I may get an hour nap if I am lucky.  Heck... today is my due date and I'm still at work.  No nap today.

    I MIGHT take a 1-2 hour nap on the weekends, but not every weekend.  I also have a job, so I can't nap during the week.  Plus, I have enough trouble sleeping at night as it is, I don't need a daytime nap making it worse.

    I nap a couple times a week usually around the 1-3 pm area and for about an hour. I love me some naps!

    ETA: I just wanted to include that I also have a job...but bedrest means no working for me so I can take as many naps as I want for now! :) I work 3am-3:30pm so I would always take a short nap when I got home from work too because I only slept about 4-5 hours prior to working 13 hours.

    I wish I could take naps, I get very tired around 3 but even if I lay down I can't fall asleep.  I have never been able to sleep during the day
