23 Tired Toddlers Sleeping in Strange Places


Oh a sleeping toddler, how sweet it is…. Can I get an AMEN?

While I typically try to keep our toddlers on a schedule with at least 1 (typically 2) naps a day – sometimes schedules don’t allow that. Their little bodies collapse and fall asleep – regardless of where they are, similar to how I was when pregnant (I’d fall asleep wherever -yes, even once under my work desk).

Some kids fall asleep crazy style. While I personally don’t know anyone with narcolepsy – these children appear to have a case of it – falling asleep whenever, where ever. We’re talking while eating, on tvs, while playing – strange.

Check out 25 Tired Toddlers Sleeping in Strange Places after the jump!
