  • She is way too young for a sleep schedule. It is impossible.

  • I always woke my babies up in the morning at a set time, one you get them used to waking up at the same time everyday, the rest of the day kind of falls into place - mine always went down for a morning nap around 9-9:30 for an hour or so, an afternoon nap around 1:30 for a couple hours, then bedtime at 7:30PM. Set a wake up time and then watch for her sleepiness cues for naptimes.

  • Waking during the night is pretty normal. Does she nap in the daytime? You may need to tweak that to get her to sleep more at night and to get her down earlier. How late are you currently putting her down?
