I can't get my daughter to take a decent nap. She usually only sleeps for about 45 minutes or so. I would like for her to take one good solid nap a day, but she ends up taking 2 or 3 tiny ones. It's a little tedious. I make sure she has a clean diaper and that it hasn't been too long since her last bottle. I lay her down and shut the door. I even put the dog outside and turn off the TV ao there isn't too much noise. No matter what I do she sleeps for about 45 minutes and wakes up. I try to leave her in her crib when she wakes up and hope she will put herself back to sleep, but it rarely happens. After a half an hour of her working herself up, I end up just going in and getting her. Am I being unrealistic? Should I just deal with the 3 small naps a day?
