Outdoor Naps Can Start As Young As Two Weeks Old
A study published by the University of Oulu in Finland found that the common practice of allowing children to nap outside typically started when the infant was a mere two weeks old. The study also discovered that children who napped outside slept for a longer period of time as compared to children who napped inside.
Researchers discovered that temperatures typically ranged from -16 to 42 degrees Fahrenheit while children were left outside for their naps. Common physical symptoms of the little ones being out in the cold were a sweaty neck, cold fingertips, red cheeks, and a cold nose.
