Anyone have any ideas of getting my baby over the 20 min curse of waking up from his nap? He has been sleeping well..13 hrs per night, with once to wake up and eat. He will be 12 weeks tomorrow. I do not let him CIO. He may fuss or whatever, but not crying. I have tried to "woo" him back to sleep, but it doesn't seem to work. Got any advice on how to get him back to sleep? Naps are still a big struggle for us, but nights seem to be getting better! I do let him fall asleep on his own at naps, with my assitance of getting him drowsy from reading a story while rocking.

Naps were always a challenge for us too, until recently. We never tried to put her on a schedule, we just went with her flow. We did have a routine that we followed, though, when she was showing signs of being sleepy. We have a cd player right by her side of the bed (we bedshare) and when she's acting like she's sleepy, we take her upstairs, close the curtains, turn on a fan, change the diaper, and turn on the music (same cd every time). She has become accustomed enough to the routine of getting ready for sleep that now, when we start getting ready for bed, the beginning of the routine is a sleep cue for her. Even if she's not that tired, she will fall asleep once we've begun our routine. She sleeps through the night (10 - 12 hours) and takes 3 naps each day. She chose the schedule (1st nap at 9:30-ish a.m., 2nd nap at noon-ish, 3rd nap at 5-ish, and bedtime at 8:30) but we dictated the routine. Hope this helps!
