Cat napper

Hi everyone. I have a 18 week old. He's been sleeping 12 hours a night since 10 weeks. ( he wakes about 4-5 am then back down), but he's a HORRIBLE napper. He sleeps 3 to 4 times a day for about a half hour to 45 minutes. I pat him on the butt, or if he's screaming, pick him up. I'm not a big fan of "crying it out". It breaks my heart.

Now that he's older, the head pops up like, "yeah ma, I'm done" and he's ready to get up, Get's cranky a couple hours later, and takes another nap. You name it, I've tried it. Dark room, music, fan, and he naps where he sleeps.

If any of you "pro" moms have been there, PLEASE help me. LOL. I can't get anything done.

Have you tried just leaving him be when he wakes up to see if he will go back to sleep. Sometimes I hear my son wake over the monitor but he goes back to sleep within minutes. To get to this stage tho they have to be pro"s at self settling so they dont cry every time they wake.....

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
