Every baby is different- some sleep a lot and others cat nap. My DD started rolling over at about 5 months. She slept great in her swing, and even was content there sometimes for a spell, same with her bouncy chair. She didn't sleep through the night until about 11 months, but after 7 months or so she only got up once at night to eat which really helped me get some rest. Be willing to try different things- I always said I would never sleep my baby in bed with me and with the exhaustion of a newborn that went out the window by the second night at home. I would sleep holding her in my glider sometimes, too. When the exhaustion sets in I think you just have to do whatever works. But hang in there, this phase might last a while, or be short, but it will not last forever. And accept any help offered to you from family, friends, etc. and take every chance to rest- chores can wait if you need some sleep. Good luck!
