My son Gabriel is now 5 months and isn't sleeping well during the day. He'll fall asleep for half an hour, then wake up, or fall asleep nursing but when he finishes, wake up. It's a little better if I swaddle him, but that's hit or miss, plus since he's starting to roll a little more that will probably be out soon.
I have another son who is almost 23 months, so it is hard to keep the house quiet during the day. Once Gabe is asleep at night, he sleeps great but his lack of sleep during the day gets him to the point of exhaustion and he is really hard to get to sleep at night.
Any suggestions? I'd be especially interested if you have an older child that prevents a quiet house. We do run a noisemaker which turns off after 45 minutes.
