My son is 6 months old. He is a pretty good sleeper at night, although every once in awhile he will wake up every hour at night. The problem I need help with is getting him to take better naps! He just cat naps all day long, but rarely ever takes a good, solid nap.
He wakes up between 7:30-8:30 and is usually ready for a nap by about 10:30. He either nurses himself to sleep or I rock him, but if I try to put him down in the crib or the pack n play he immediately wakes up and cries and then will not go back to sleep. If I put him in his swing he will usually nap for around 30 minutes and then needs another short nap soon after, and again and again throughout the day. Once in awhile he will sleep for a solid 2-3 hours in the swing, but he is going to grow out of it soon and I want him to be able to sleep.
I have tried putting him down drowsy but still awake and he gets so angry and kicks the wall and will not go to sleep. Any advice?
At night he nurses to sleep and then stays sound asleep when I put him down, and for the most part only wakes once or twice to eat.
