Advice & Tips: When Haley and Hana are both asleep, I take a nap. The nap can last 30 min up to 3 hours. This depends on how much the girls allow. The nap is absolutely essential. Without it, I wouldn't be able to get half of what I get done, done. Highly recommend a nap during the day if you aren't getting good sleep at night.
