My son won’t take naps!

Hi Grandma Maggie,

I am a first time, stay-at-home mother who is having a heck of a time getting my 19 month old son to nap (I am also 36 weeks pregnant with my second son)!

We have been talking about starting a family for a while, but the response from family and friends has been very negative: “You have plenty of time for kids,” “You’re too young to have children now,” “just enjoy each other while you can,” etc. Read More
