My 3 1/2 month old will only nap for 20 minutes 3 times per day. By bedtime she is exhausted! Any suggestions for helping to increase her sleeptime?

  • My 4 month old has been giving me the same problems. Some days she takes long naps (3-4 hours) and others, she will nap for an hour, wake up and be so tired. I try to make sure that she is full when she goes down, doesn't have any burbs stuck (she tends to have a lot of burbs leftover) and that she is not too hot.
    Sometimes when she wakes up, I also turn her over on her side and tuck her back in, and leave. If it doesn't work after about 3-4 times, then I take her up.
