  • No hon, have no advice. Just wanted to let you know I feel ya. My daughter was the EXACT same way. It was a pain in the butt. I would swaddle her really well and sometimes that helped. ;) GL

  • Sorry. I can't give you any advice. Unfortunately I am in the same boat as you with my 4 month old daughter. She will sleep all night but I have to fight her to get her to take a nap and if it lasts longer than 10-15 mins I'm thrilled! I have yet to figure out how to rationalize to her that she really needs to take a nap. If I figure out how to do this I will definitely let you know.:)

  • ah the catnappers. My 4 month old is the same way. During the day will snooze about 15 minutes maybe 2 or 3 times. But at night she usually goes to sleep between 9 and 9:30 and sleeps till about 4 then gets a bottle and goes back to sleep until i get her up to leave for work. I don't know when it gets better. They just don't want to miss anything i guess.

  • My 8 month old still does it. It's so frustrating! lol I guess it's what I get for having a baby who slept through the night since 2 months old. Good luck!
