About This App

Your baby has always been a good sleeper, especially at naptime, but he is suddenly waking 30 to 45 minutes into his the nap with a forceful cry. The cry is not the problem,  but it signals a problem that must be discovered.   

The Babywise Nap App 

The Babywise Nap App is an analysis tool that can help any parent isolate the underlying cause of nap disruptions and sleep disturbances for infants between 2 to 12 months of age. By working through five basic question, the App will help reduce the hundreds of nap disturbance variables to the most likely cause for a baby’s sleep disturbance and create a list of the most appropriate solutions based on the data provided. The App is intuitive! The application can distinguish between the naps of a three month old and a six month old, a breast fed baby and a formula fed baby; and babies already taking solid foods. 

Adapted from the best-selling On Becoming Babywise book (Charleston Publishing Group), and with the confidence of six million parents, the Babywise Nap App is simple to use, understandable, and comes with solutions that have proven successful for millions of babies around the world. 

The Babywise Nap App assumes a baby is on a well-established feed-wake-sleep routine and is already sleeping through the night (minimum eight hours), and he has established healthy nap patterns. If these outcomes have not been achieved, then nap disturbances are not the exception to a baby’s day, but the norm. If that is the case, we recommend introducing the Babywise principles immediately. 

Along with the analysis feature, parents will find:

  • Basic nap and sleep facts
  • How healthy nap habits are developed
  • How many naps a day, based on baby’s age
  • How long each nap will be, based on baby’s age
  • Explanations of the most common sleep disturbances
  • How food and waketime activities influence nap behavior
  • How and when to drop a nap, based on baby’s need and age
  • How to train a baby to sleep through the night
