I have done all the research for you! Now you just need to read this book to learn all about establishing a lovely rhythm.

You already have cotton balls. You already have pipe-cleaners. Grab 5 minutes to pop a few Quiet Bins together and you have the makings of a glorious (oh yes - GLORIOUS) quiet time.
Young children have trouble settling into quiet times. They naturally want to play, move and go, go, go! But quiet periods are essential for a peaceful rhythm.
