I am going mad with the lack of daytime sleep happening. I don't mind him being awake at all but because he isn't sleeping enough he is grumpy most of the time and i spend all day just trying to pacify him till it is time for him to go to bed. He sleeps pretty well and consistently at night but will not sleep for longer than half an hour at a time during the day. This is just long enough for him to not be tired anymore but not long enough for him really be refreshed so within half an hour he is a wreck and so overtired that I cannot get him back to sleep. It is driving me mad! I have tried the swing,the vibrating chair, his crib everything but nothing works! Any advice?

I wish I had advice for you... what I can tell you is my little man was doing th same thing and he broke himself from that. He still does not always sleep a lot during the day but by the afternoon I usually get a good nap in. I wish I knew what did it for him . Good luck...I kno how frustrating it is.

Same thing happening here...yesterday I was exhausted because she woke me up at 6 a.m. after having gone to sleep at 2 a.m., and she was awake for the rest of the day besides a half-hour nap, then didn't go to sleep for the night until 3 a.m. Sometimes she'll fall asleep after nursing, but if I try to move her, she wakes right up. She used to fall back to sleep after her first feeding, but lately she has just been staying up. I'm worried she's not getting enough sleep!

What motherhood has taught me so far is that everything is a stage. Grady did this a few days last week and I thought I was going to go crazy. After a few days he went back to giving me a couple good naps. I don't think they can maintain running on that little sleep.

We don't have this particular problem (don't worry, we have others!) so take this with a grain of salt, but Misha typically falls asleep for awhile after eating, and he'll pretty much only eat in the side lying position, so either he nurses or my husband gives him a bottle (whilst holding his hand) in our bed and when he falls asleep we just run like hell. I wouldn't leave him alone on a regular bed if he could roll back to tummy, but he can't for now, so this works. Sometimes when he starts to wake up we can just give him a pacifier until he falls back to sleep, but he sleeps like this most of the day.

I hope you find something that works!

When my DS#1 was 4 months old, his pedi recommended 2 oz of chamomile tea in his bottle at bedtime. I wonder if that would work for yours for naptime? You could always check with his pedi to see if it would be ok.

This is probably a phase which will pass in time. How often does he take naps during the day? Some babies need shorter, more frequent naps, where as others can be completely different. The norm is around 4-5 a day

If he's sleeping well at night that's great.

Lexi catnaps too. I don't expect her naps to be longer until she's a little older. Sometimes it's 30 min, other times it's 45 min. When she wakes up from them, she's hungry. I feed her, change her, and she's back down for another catnap about an hour after she wakes. I think that's normal.

Kari, Kody does that too. He refuses to eat before he goes down for his little naps, but wants to eat when he wakes up. He's a goof sometimes. He will scream bloody murder if I try to feed him prior to!

Sometimes I have to feed her a little right before a nap to help settle her...so I feel like I'm nonstop feeding! I also think if I feed her a little right before she naps, maybe she'll sleep longer...never works!
