Kids Are Masters of Life-Napping (20 GIFs)

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS


For people who can fall asleep nearly anywhere (in any position, at any time of day, while doing anything), children sure can be impossible to put to sleep. They’re like little dozing narcoleptics who also have terrible insomnia. To say this is frustrating for parents is like saying the sun is a bit toasty.

Sure there’s “sleep walking,” and then there’s what a lot of babies and kids do: life-napping.

These 20 animated clips make it pretty obvious that kids are the absolute best at dozing off (as long as it’s not between the hours of bedtime to dawn).
