My question is how long is your baby awake before he/she goes down for a nap. I'm beginning to think that some of the bouts of excessive crying my baby has is due to being over tired. Because he's getting older (hes 4 weeks today) he's become way more alert during the day and sometimes is up for over an hour at a time.
He used to just fall asleep on my boob during feedings, but really doesn't do that during the day anymore. I'm really not sure if I should try and make him go to sleep after a certain amount of time of being up or how to do that anyway. I feel trying to get him to nap before he's ready to would also set him off into a crying episode.
