My little guy is 12 weeks old. He sleeps well when we are out and I have him in a carrier (2 hours or more) - and he sleeps well at night (~7 hours) and usually 2-3 hours of sleep after his early morning feeding.
But if he is napping at home (in a Rock and Play, swaddled), he sleeps for about an hour and then wakes up. Replacing the paci doesn't work. He hasn't taken to a noise machine yet (it was magic for my daughter). He's not ready to be awake - when I pick him up he goes right back to sleep. When I try to put him down again after letting him sleep about 10 minutes, he's back up within 10 minutes, sometimes right away. Sonetimes I do put him in carrier at home, if it's getting to be dinner time and I need my hands, and he's back to sleep.
I've always feared 'the baby who needs to be held to sleep' - certainly I don't mind holding him. I know it's too soon for him to really be able to seelf-soothe back to sleep, so just looking for any suggestions to help him nap better at home. I was wanting to get his naps improved before transitioning out of the RnP, but maybe I should just do that now, try to change everything at once.
