  • You might want to pay attention to her clues a little more closely. She may not be tired or she may be overtired. She may have something else going on. When my little one is tired she gets these dark circles around her eyes. I can tell that she needs a nap way before she starts rubbing her eyes and whining. So when I can see a little frustration starting down she goes. I wish you luck. It is all about being able to read your baby's cues.

  • Children aren't always on a set schedule to the second. Especially during the first year, their schedules change. You might want to try different sleeping times, after feedings, and make sure to have a clean diaper and that your DD is burped. 730 may be too early and her naps you might be trying too late. I'd just try to figure out her sleeping times, and if not, try to talk to her doctor about what's going on.
