My little one naps all day long. she is 6 weeks old, and has 1 hour periods of wakefullness, and then its back to sleep. My issue is she only sleeps for one 4 hour stretch at night, otherwise, its just 2-3 hour naps. I'm thinking that she is sleeping too much during the day to be tired ehough to sleep longer at night. I have tried to keep her awake for longer periods, but this usually doesn't work out, she will cry louder and louder until i swattle her and rock her back to sleep.
So is anyone elses little one sleeping this much during the day?
Any suggestions on how to alter the routine so she sleeps longer at night?
is anyone lucky enough to have a baby sleeping through the night at this age?
