Will your child only nap in your arms, in a swing, or after elaborate rituals? Does your child take cat naps — or none at all? Let world-renowned, trusted parenting author Elizabeth Pantley help you. She’ll guide you with the same sensitive expertise and gentle approach used in her other No-Cry bestsellers about sleep,discipline and potty training.
Research proves that daily naps improve health, mood, growth, intelligence, and well-being. Yet children often resist the naps they need and parents don’t know how to make them happen. The results are fussy, crying babies and cranky, grouchy kids who also have trouble sleeping at night!
In The No-Cry Nap Solution Pantley explains to parents of children ages newborn to kindergarten the importance of napping to both behavior during the day and sleeping during (and through!) the night. She then shares with you her gentle, loving child-friendly techniques–tested on families of all sizes and circumstances–and shows you how you can customize her solutions for your own family.
Pantley addresses issues such as children who resist naps, dealing with schedule changes, turning short naps into longer ones, helping a child go from needing motion for sleep to “stationery” sleep, nursing at naptime, daycare-related napping problems, newborn “in-arms” or “in-sling” napping issues, and much more.

The cheapest healthy meal is homemade vegetable soup. It can be made using almost any leftovers and a few noodles. It only takes a couple of minutes to throw together.
cheapest meal is open your cupboards and cabinets- maybe a boneless chicken breast or two and grilled and cut into thin strips and tossed into some pasta with a few vegetables here and there and some cheese sauce is an affordable meal…
spaghetti is always cheap but can get boring.
we also make chicken breast pieces and and slice up sweet potatoes for fries.
