My son is not napping regularly during the day. I have tried everything possible, white noise machine, swing, rocking my baby, using a bouncer, putting my baby in his crib or bassinet, using music or other soothing sounds, laying down with him, taking him for a car ride, and I have even left one of my T-shirts by his side ( I have tried many things too many to mention). Nothing seems to work. When and if he falls asleep he only sleeps for 10-20 minutes at the most. He seldom cries, and generally only fusses at night when he has not had a nap during the day. He eats well and bowl movements are normal. I go through my checklist every time, eat, diaper, does he need to be burped. Help! I am at a loss.
Some other helpful information my son had GBS Meningitis at 4 weeks and was hospitalized for 3 weeks he has bounced back like nothing has happened. However he is on to low doses of medications for seizures as he had several while in the hospital. He has not had any since the infection has cleared up but these medications are supposed to make him sleepy. After he takes them I can visibly see he is tired but he wakes at the slightest movements.
Hes really a great baby so mellow and easy going I am just concerned about the amount of sleep he is getting during the day.
