National Napping Day

National Napping Day is an unofficial holiday observed in the United States on the Monday following the daylight saving time change in March. It was first observed in 1999 as an effort to promote the health benefits of taking a nap during the day. The idea behind the holiday is that losing an hour of sleep due to the time change can be difficult for some people, and taking a nap during the day can help them to adjust and feel more alert.

While the holiday is not specifically focused on babies, it is a good reminder of the importance of healthy sleep habits for people of all ages, including infants and young children. Napping can be a great way to help babies and young children get the sleep they need during the day, which can in turn improve their mood, behavior, and overall well-being. Adequate sleep is essential for healthy growth and development, and parents should prioritize creating a safe and comfortable sleep environment for their babies and establishing consistent sleep routines.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
