How long do you let your little nap?

My Daddy will let me nap about an hour while I cuddle in his lap. Any longer than an hour and it will usually cause me problems when trying to go to sleep at bedtime. It can sometimes be longer if it's a special night and my bedtime will be later than normal.

The main concern I have as a caregiver when setting a naptime is how it will affect sleeping through the night.

 

In the past when I was in relationships, I tended to save naptime for days when the person I was with didn't have to worry about getting up the next morning, so we could comfortably have a one hour nap or a two hour nap and then push bedtime back to compensate. I generally went for two hour naps more than one hour naps, but both were okay.

 

Sleep varies a lot from person to person, and while the supposed average is for eight hours out of twenty-four, I've known some people who barely needed six hours sleep and some who needed closer to twelve. If insomnia is an issue, I'd tend to avoid naptime altogether unless they were particularly tired. It makes sense in cases like that to save sleep for overnight in order to be well-rested for the next day, especially if there's something going on like work.

 

However, I find naptime to be a very cute and fun thing to do, and if you get into a routine of doing it regularly it can easily become incorporated into someone's sleep schedule. I generally wouldn't go any longer than two hours for a nap, but again it depends on the person and their sleep cycle.

 

Edit: My ex-wife, who wasn't a little, used to nap for an hour or so after getting home from work (in the days when she used to work) and that was a regular part of her schedule and thus our schedule. So some people really do benefit from having a nap!

"let"? i usually instigate a compulsory 30-45min nap in the afternoon, or else she gets cranky. she wakes up with a little snack and small coffee and milk. she's sharp and obedient - ready to meet friends for dinner and make me deliriously proud with how smart and sarcastic and funny she is, or just stay in and quietly do her activities in the living room.

on days that dont permit an afternoon nap i can tell. she's almost looking for trouble. it gets R-rated from here on, so i'll spare you.

My daddy doesn't have a set time period to let me nap, it's always dependent on if I've had enough sleep the night before, if I'm working that day, and how exhausted I am. I have a very weird schedule, with night shifts and day classes plus other events so sometimes he'll let me sleep a few hours next to him while he's either doing homework or playing a game, or he'll wake me up after 30-45minutes if I don't have obligations I need to be rested for later.

Given that my Little doesn't get enough sleep (in my opinion) just about ever, I encourage him to nap for as long as possible. He tends to wake up after only 30-45 minutes typically though which, for him, would be pretty good. Once he napped for almost 2 hours and I was super excited.  :lol:

Hiya!

 

As a little, I don't really nap during the day. Mostly, it's because I work an 8 hour job, 8:30am-5:30pm, so I don't really have time to nap. However, if I am feeling super tired, on my lunch break I will try to take a 30 minute nap, but nothing more than that, otherwise I will feel groggy and lazy the rest of the day.

 

If it's the weekend, Daddy and I might take a short nap during the day, but nothing over an hour because then it can start to affect our sleep at night.

 

Hope this helps.

As long as I can whenever I can, I never get enough sleep so when I take naps he just let's me sleep for as long as possible.

I'm a little, but if I had a little it would 1 hour, tops. For myself, I can't nap longer than an hour or my sleep schedule will be off. I work during the week so no naps for me. On the weekend, if I'm home, I will indulge in a nap if I'm sleepy. Obviously, if out and about I can't nap, haha. I wouldn't allow a nap to be set for me no matter what, but that's just me. Well, if I didn't have to work I would allow it. That will never happen though because I will never give up my independence for a partner.
