How to maximize nap time with 3 babies in the house

...or should I say a 2-bedroom/1-bath apartment:
- Lucy on Mom's bed
- Paige (11 month's old) in the crib in the kid's room
- Owen in his carseat in the bathtub.
Just make sure you don't need to use the bathroom. And you get 2 hours of absolute silence!

I know. I was thinking I should have taken a pic. But hey, I was thrilled to have complete alone time that quickly escaped to the computer.

When Cooper was a baby, I put him in his car seat in the bathtub while I was cleaning the rest of the bathroom -- but for nap-time? THAT'S innovation.

Hahaha! Good for you! I am so impressed. I only had 2 babies, and only for a half a day, and I was beat!

good use of resources though!

hahaha!
I split up sleeping locations in the afternoon, too. Aiden in Owen's crib. Owen on Aiden's bed. Reed on the couch. That's my ideal.

Reality? Someone's always on my bed, Reed's not always going to even take a nap, and the length of naptime is much more fluid than I would prefer.

Good for you!
