I've been reading this board since my second trimester but haven't really posted (partly because I hate my screen name, which is left over from when I was on the knot years ago, and can't be changed!). Ryan was born February 18th so he is 11 weeks old this week, and I've been agonizing over naps, so I want to know what everyone else does. I know people keep saying babies shouldn't be up for more than 2 hours but my baby doesn't seem to know he isn't "supposed" to do this! He sleeps great at night and is relatively content most of the day, aside from his gas pains. He usually only takes 2 naps a day and they almost always take place right after breastfeeding. He's up for the day between 8 and 9, and then I hold him for his morning nap, usually around 10:30 and it lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Then I swaddle him for an afternoon nap around 2:00 and he sleeps in the RnP in the living room while I watch TV or do things around the house (I'm trying to work up to using his crib for naps and at night, but we're not quite there) and it lasts 2-3 hours. So total nap time on an average day is 3.5-4 hours. But naps have been a battle this week. So my questions for everyone are:
How old is your baby?
When are they up for the day?
How many naps and for how long?
Where do they nap and what is the environment like while they're sleeping?
Do you dress them in anything special (sleep sack or swaddle) before they go down?
Anyone else's baby only nod off during the day after breastfeeding?
What time is bedtime?
Sorry if this is way too long!
