  • Don't know the age but could she be ready to drop one nap? Like if she usually takes three she would go to two. Eventually all babies do this. Make sure she is really tired and ready for a nap before putting her down. just an idea.......GL

  • How old? It could be a growth spurt.

  • she is 4 months and went thru a spurt last month. i think may be due to her shots.

  • my son is the same, he never naps for long. usually 30min here or there. Sometime he doesn't even nap.

  • Can you try swaddling her? Works great to keep my 1 month old still during night.
