Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Baby will not nap more than 10 minutes!!

All day long he has been fighiting naps, when he does finally fall asleep he wakes up 10 minutes later.  I try to run around house like a maniac getting things done in 10 minutes lol.  How are you guys getting your LO to take regular naps a day?

    Have you tried putting him in a bouncy or swing?  Those are they days when I'll just put baby in a slilng or carrier and let him nap on me.  Not quite as restful for you, but you do what you can.

    It is tough.  I have found that if I catch her just when she is getting heavy eyes and put her in the swing (not on) and then as she wakes a bit turn it on... that has worked a few times.  The past week she has gotten better about it.

    Good luck.

    My DS has days like that. Usually if he is being like that and will fall asleep on my chest, I just pop in a movie and let him sleep on me. Hang in there!

    Are you swaddling?  My DD was a real sleep fighter until I went back to the swaddle.  Then I hold her for a few minutes, and she falls asleep.  Good luck, and I hope you find something that works.

    When we brought our lil man home he would sleep 2-3 hours, now that he's 3 weeks he may sleep for 20 mins.  So I understand your frustration.
