According to the article’s author, “the theory behind outdoor napping is that children exposed to fresh air, whether in summer or the depths of winter, are less likely to catch coughs and colds – and that spending a whole day in one room with 30 other children does them no good at all. Many parents also believe their children sleep better and for longer in the open.”
“Babies clearly slept longer outdoors than indoors,” says Marjo Tourula. “While indoor naps lasted between one and two hours, outdoor naps lasted from 1.5 to three hours. Probably the restriction of movements by clothing could increase the length of sleep, and a cold environment makes swaddling possible without overheating.”
