- So if your child is a cat napper, what do you do? This is what I suggest. If he normally sleeps about 20 minutes, have a chair in the hallway outside his bedroom door and at about 15 minutes before he wakes up sit there and read a book or knit and wait and listen. The minute your little one starts to make any kind of sound like he's waking up, rush in there and pat him, rub him, rock him, do whatever you need to do to get him to go back to sleep. If you will have caught him before he's fully awake, he will go back to sleep and then finish his nap and if you do this for a week or two you'll find he'll get in the habit of taking a longer nap and that will become part of his daily routine.
