My 4 moth old daughter doesn't stay asleep when I lay her down for a nap. She will obviously be sleepy, and I will hold her until she falls asleep, and lay her down, and she will wake up almost immediately. She is dry, fed, and comfortable as far as her body temp. goes. My eldest daughter did the same thing, and she was diagnosed w A.D.H.D. at the age of 5. When my baby wakes up, she cries and stays awake, WIDE awake after a minute or so. She mostly sleeps thru the night, from abt. 9pm till 7 or 8 am, waking usually once. Anybody know any tricks besides fans and white noise to keep sleepy asleep longer than a minute without holding her the whole time???? help!
