I love a good disco kip. I swear by them in the summer holidays.

I like to treat myself to a Saturday afternoon nap whenever possible! Have to time it right though because if it's too long I wake up feeling horrendous.

No because I have two tiny children but I WANT TO.

No, I hate napping in the day it leaves md feeling all confused about what time of day it is

Only when I've worked a night shift. When I'm not in work I can't nap during the day, it seems to make me more tired.

I love a 20 minute doze on the sofa while the DC are watching TV - it's iur holiday ritual after being out and about!

A proper bed nap only if I've been sleeping really badly or been ill

I'm in bed now.

It's cosy.

And me Joffers afternoon snoozeroos are my life saver.

Headphones on and big snores in the garden.
Heaven..... but I'm bed bound today so napping in a dark room.

I have just woken up from a delightful nap - my DD decided that 3am was an appropriate time to wake up and that I should get up too....so I really felt like I deserved it.

YANBU go for it.

I wake up odd

megletthesecond Thu 18-Aug-16 15:56:03

Not since I've had children. Sadly.

I nap nearly every day, otherwise I'm a miserable cow by 5pm.

BummyMummy77 Thu 18-Aug-16 16:03:24

I do sometimes. For the last ten years I get drop down tired between 2-3pm.

It's so bad sometimes even when I worked I'd sneak off and nap in a dark cupboard sitting up for 20 minutes.

Now I have ds I nap with him when I haven't got too much housework to do and it's the most lovely, enjoyable thing in the world having snugly naps and waking up and having smoochie toddler hugs. grin

Nope! Gives me a migraine or feel so rotten on waking that it's not worth it! Plus hate getting hot\sweaty and squishing hair! Feel hideously tired nowadays though around 5/6 pm ... .But sleeping during the day just seems wrong somehow (but I don't have infants waking me in the night!) Dh on the other hand always has day-time naps at weekends but he works long hrs and travels constantly.

On the days when I've had a 20 minute power nap in the afternoon, I get more things done later in the day.
I have a work colleague who likes going home after an early shift for ( NW England) "an hour in t' shawl".

WilLiAmHerschel Thu 18-Aug-16 16:20:35

I physically can't not nap nowadays. If I don't go to bed for a sleep I fall asleep where I'm sitting. I don't know what's wrong with me.

JockMonsieur Thu 18-Aug-16 16:23:00

i would if I could, but I can rarely get one of my DC to be quiet for long enough for me to drop off.

DameXanaduBramble Thu 18-Aug-16 16:23:03

Ooh yeah, I love a disco nap!

Ludoole Thu 18-Aug-16 16:23:17

I work nights and can't sleep for more than 3 hours in the day sad. I'm permanently exhausted.

CremeEggThief Thu 18-Aug-16 16:24:51

Sometimes, but I try to stick to the sofa. If I go to be, it can take me hours before I get up. I always have a good long nap on holidays though, unless we're out for the whole day. A daily nap is one of my favourite things about holidays.

CremeEggThief Thu 18-Aug-16 16:25:15

TooExtraImmatureCheddar Thu 18-Aug-16 16:27:46

Not now. I did when the DC were tiny if it was possible, but now the littlest one is 2, only if I stayed up particularly late/got up particularly early. I would sleep in a lot later than I am allowed to by said 2 year-old, though.

My mum does - she's 50 and needs a nap every afternoon, despite not working and having a hard life of walking the dogs/watching TV/cooking dinner and a very comfortable lifestyle. Her parents do it too and have napped as long as I can remember (so for the last 30 years anyway). I used to accept this without question but now I think it's a symptom of ongoing issues with depression/anxiety.

TheWeeBabySeamus1 Thu 18-Aug-16 16:29:02

I bloody love a nap. It's the thing I miss most about my life pre-child - sad but true grin

Definitely not unreasonable.
