I haven't read any of the books about this yet, but everyone has said the cycles are 3 hours or so and the baby shouldn't go more than 2 hours between naps. Is this really true for 4-5 month olds? It seems like by 6 months they only need 2-3 naps a day. My little boy generally still takes 4 naps or so, but we aren't on a very good schedule for them. I basically just put him to sleep when he acts tired. But I'm looking for more structure and a child that is easy to put to sleep. Does anyone know if this cycle method works for kids this age?
