Naptime C Infant care29 1. Schedule naps with parent preferences in mind. Stagger naptimes to meet the individual needs of infants under your care. 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 babys naptimes. Does Eli take a nap at home? What time does Eli 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. C Infant care30 2. Use music and stories to calm infants before naptime. 3. If feeding is needed before naptime, hold infants to feed them their pre-nap bottles. C Infant care31 3. Put infant in crib. For safety reasons, its never okay to prop an infants bottle or give it to them while they are lying down. After she falls to sleep what are you going to do with her? Should you leave her on the couch? C Infant care32 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 physicians recommendation for a sleep position waiver is on file in the center. C Infant care33 What is SIDS?
