Being a mompreneur is not that easy and everyday brings a new challenge, not just in your home life but in your business as well. We have already talked about developing flexibility in a business run by mompreneurs and in this connection this article will talk about a few quick tips with which you can make better use of baby nap time. Let’s start;
1- Schedule is very important; with a newborn you many not be able to work on a nap schedule, but as baby hits three month’s mark, he starts understanding the day and night time sleep. Right from this time, set your baby on scheduled naps. Also make sure that naps are not longer because it will effect the night time sleep then.
2- Don’t nap when they nap; we all get tired being super active all the time. But this is the challenge we have to meet. So get ready and have a cup of coffee to refresh you!
3- Use this time only to do the things you can’t do holding the baby; for instance meetings/video calls, interviews, preparing mailers, or taking notes, anything that needs writing and so on.
Doing the above will bring a huge difference and your efficiency will definitely improve. However, you may be thinking that how long a baby nap should be. Ideally baby nap should be between 20 minutes to 2 hours. Two hours is a good time slot for wrapping up important tasks, but you need to have a clear mind that what I need to do in this time and must not waste a single minute.
If your baby’s nap is too short or you want him to have a nap of upto two hours, make sure that he is not hungry and not feeling cold or hot. A full stomach and a warm bed surrounded by fresh air is perfect setup for a baby to have a good nap after which he’s fresh.
