I am new to this forum and I am looking to get some advice with a nap issue I am having. My DD is 8 week and she used to nap like a champ. I tried putting her on a schedule last week and I think I may have messed with her sleep patterns or maybe she has just become a terrible napper who knows? Regardless I am having some troubles. When she show signs of being tired I will put her down ether in her swing or carrier (I tried the crib, but that is a hole other can of worms, she sleeps in it just fine at night with no help but not for naps) she will fall asleep and like clockwork she will wake every 20-30mins and I will try and get her to go back to sleep but again 20-30mins later she is awake, and the funny thing is she is yawn and rubbing her eye in between so she is tired. I wish I could get her to take longer naps as I know she would benefit from them as she is fussy during the day and extremely fussy toward bedtime. She only stays awake for about 1-2 hours in between these cat naps, so she is not staying awake to long she is just not getting enough sleep for her naps. At night she will sleep 8-10 hours so she is getting her sleep in the evening, and I have no troubles getting her to go to bed, it’s just the silly naps. Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do that worked? Do any of you seasoned moms have suggestions or advice? Please help me for I am at my wits end.
