"Awake Windows"

With the holidays coming up, there’s a good chance you and your little one are going to be running around, visiting friends, attending parties, and possibly having some houseguests for a little while.

With all that activity, there’s a good chance you might find your regular routine a little disrupted, and you may have to make some adjustments to your baby’s nap schedule.

So how can you do that with a minimal impact on your little one’s sleep? The best thing to focus on is what I like to call, “awake windows.”

Simply put, an awake window is how long your baby is awake between sleep sessions, whether those are their nighttime sleep or naps. They’re a great way to keep your baby from becoming overtired when you need to adjust their schedule, and I’ll tell you why and how to do it in this week’s video.
