What should I do when she wakes upset from naps?

What should I do when she wakes upset from naps?

Some little ones wake upset from naps. If your child wakes up from her nap upset and this is unusual or unexpected, go to her to see what is going on and to comfort her. On the other hand, your little one may be in the habit of waking crying or screaming from a nap. If this is a pattern, then there are a few things you can do to break that habit and help her to transition from naps a bit more relaxed.

For instance, you can wake her a bit earlier from her nap to hold and comfort her before she is able to wake on her own and scream. You could also wait in the room at the end of her naptime, doing a quiet activity of your own, so you are there when she wakes.
