Babies: 3 - 6 Months

I'm gonna lose it!

Please tell me I am not the only one!!! What is the 45 min. intruder?!?!?! What are 30 min. short naps?!?!?! I wouldn't know bc my child doesn't even get that far! I'm ready to scream.  She has never been a good napper, I've probably posted about her and what to do 15 times.  She napped on me for the first 8 weeks.  Then I began putting her in the RnP for naps which resulted in 30-45 min naps.  Sucked but doable.  For the last probably 3 weeks, she naps anywhere from 15-30 mins, usually around 20-22.  It's freaking ridiculous! I've tried everything, putting her down earlier, later, in between.  She currently gets rocked to sleep so I know she might not be able to put herself back to sleep once awake yet somehow she manages just fine at night, sleeps 730-5.  I'm just so frustrated with rocking her for 10 mins. just so she can get up in 15 mins. over and over and over again.AHHH

 

sorry had to vent

  • I know how you feel. My son takes 20-30 min naps about 3-4 times a day and STILL doesn't sleep through the night. He's never been a good sleeper so I guess I don't know any different.

  • Just wondering- how old are your babies? Mine is 5 months and he doesnt sleep through the night and you can barely call his "naps", naps! They last 10 min sometimes!!

  • My daughter is 3 and a half months.  At least she sleeps through the night so I cant complain about that.  I guess that's why its so annoying, I know shes capable of sleeping

  • Same here.  30 minute naps now.  I also used to hold her that first 3 months of her life for naps.  I have, however, started putting her in the crib after rocking for a few minutes until she's drowsy.  Ten when she fusses at the 30 minute mark I let her go a little while before getting her.  Sometimes she goes back to sleep and sometimes she cries hard so I get her.  She is a big thumb sucker so sometimes she plugs herself and goes back to sleep which is wonderful!

    Your LO sleeps from 7:30-5? I will trade you!! Mine went to sleep around 7:30 last night and woke up at 11:30 and would not go back down until about 12:30. She woke up again at 3 to eat and then again at 6. She does nap during the day, but not for that long.

    Sounds like my nights! DS use to take two naps a day, they were 2-3 hours long. It was awesome! Now I'm lucky if they go past 30 minutes. I don't know what happened. He is able to soothe himself to sleep at night or if I place him in his crib awake, he will go to sleep on his own. He is ready to play when he wakes up from those short naps.
