Hi Ladies - I need some nap and night advice. I'm having a hard time getting my six week old to sleep regularly during the day - i know she's too young to have a nap 'schedule' but i'm lucky if she naps two 45mn naps during the day. Otherwise she catnaps whenever she can and i don't think it's healthy for her - i also think it's impacting her night sleep.
At night, i am LUCKY if we have three hour stretches. Most nights, I get one three-four hour stretch and then she is up every two hours to every hour. It's ended up with me absolutely exhausted and, with her lack of regular naps, unable to catch up on sleep.
I am trying to put her down in her nursery with blinds drawn for naps - that's how i finally get those two naps a day - and try to catch when she gets tired. I swaddle her, nurse her briefly and put her down. Do you have any advice? Is thing just something that will sort itself out with time? Am i just being impatient?
Thanks in advance!
