Back to Nap 26 - surprisingly it does work. You have to listen to this on headphones to be able to get the full effect though. When you listen to Nap 26 it puts you through cycles until you come out at the end of it easily awaken and refreshed. It's not that hard for me to fall asleep but I thought the waking up would be rough - yet it does as promised. This is perfect for my life right now because Connor will take around a 2 hour nap and I can still get rest but also have over an hour to get something accomplished. I hated to nap when he did because I felt like I was wasting valuable time!
This is one of those things that you will have to try out to see the effects. I have been incorporating it into my daily routine and if it works for you - I bet you will too! It has helped save some of my sanity because with me being less exhausted I'm a much nicer mommy and my patience has increased. I wish they could make a Nap26 for kids that worked in reverse. It would only take them 26 minutes to fall asleep but they would nap for 3 hours. Sometimes it takes me so long to get Connor to take his nap that it has completely defeated the purpose. Getting an almost 3 year old boy to lay still and quietly is quite the challenge!
