Napping Makes Kids Smart

A study from the University of Arizona in Tucson has found that after working on stimulation through reading and talking with baby, you should try to put her down for a nap.


They found something called "abstraction," which is an advanced learning skill.

I'll save you all the scientific mumbo jumbo...basically, the study found that when a baby napped right after learning something, it helped them understand the information better.

Hey, good enough reason for me, you don't have to twist my arm to get me to want a baby to nap. Now if only we could get the babies to go to sleep. Why don't you help us with that, scientists?

What do you think of these findings? Make sense or just another one of those silly baby studies?
