Please note:

  • Before 6 months of age, a baby should not be kept awake for more than two hours at a time.

  • A baby (or child) who wakes up crying in the morning or after a nap is often a baby who has not slept enough. It is preferable to let him go back to sleep instead of picking him up.

  • If a baby (or child) wakes up in a good mood after a 30 to 45 minute nap but falls asleep within the hour, the nap was not long enough. It is preferable to let the child go back to sleep instead of picking him up.
