My 3 month old takes only 2 20 minute naps i don't know what to do!

She will not stay asleep. When I put her down when she is tired she sleeps then 20 minutes later she's awake. Come around 6 or so she yawns, but goes to bed at 8 sleeps all night lond till 9 the next morning.

  • You're lucky she naps at all. My daughter is 2 and she gave up naps a few months ago. I wish mine would nap even for 20 minutes.

  • sounds like she is getting the sleep that she needs, even if it's driving you up a tree. Sleeping through the night at 3 months is awesome, especially for so long. Some people would give their eye teeth for a toddler that slept that long. (and my 11 yr old doesn't sleep through the night, but luckily doesn't bug me either.)

  • My 5 month old son has been doing the same thing for awhile now. He will nap great if I'm laying right next to him, but if I just put him down and leave the room...he'll sleep for 30 mins TOPS! He does sleep well through the night though so I'm not too concerned about it. It is kind of annoying though when you are trying to get stuff done but I've tried everything to get him to sleep longer during the day and nothing works. Some babies don't need as much sleep as others. I was the same way when I was little and my sister would take 4 hour naps. Everyone is different.
