  30. Naptime is like having a garden. There are some procedures you have to follow so it will grow and bear fruit. First, you have to find out from the parents what their preferences are for baby’s naptimes. Does E-I take a nap at home? What time does E-I go to bed? Tonight, Mama and Dada are taking us out to eat, so they what us both to take a nap. Click your mouse and check out the first procedure for naptimes. 1. Schedule naps with parent preferences in mind. Stagger naptimes to meet the individual needs of infants under your care. C-5.01 - Infant care

  31. Remember Aunt Billie held E-I and rocked her to sleep in a nice chair like mine. If E-I is excited and needs to calm down to get sleepy, sometimes she reads her a story or plays soft music first. So, what are these nextsteps? • Use music and stories to calm infants before naptime. • If feeding is needed before naptime, hold infants to feed them their pre-nap bottles. C-5.01 - Infant care

  32. After she falls to sleep what are you going to do with her? Should you leave her on the couch? 3. Put infant in crib. For safety reasons, it’s never okay to prop an infant’s bottle or give it to them while they are lying down. C-5.01 - Infant care

  33. 4. To reduce risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), place infant on his/her back in a crib with a firm mattress, avoiding use of fluffy animals, pillows, and other objects in the crib. Only place a child in an alternative sleep position if a physician’s recommendation for a sleep position waiver is on file in the center. C-5.01 - Infant care
