I'm new to this forum.
I wanted to see if I can get any advice on this...I've always had issues with regards to sleep and my now 5.5 month old. Lately she has cut back to 3 naps right on cue but her naps and awake time are still a hit and miss kind of thing.
These past 2 days she had 2 short naps one morning, and the other around noon, then she will have this massive long nap for her 3rd one. Not too sure if it's becoming a super early bed time (around 3/4pm) as when she wakes up she's very fussy and all. Her total daytime sleep added up to 3.5 hours but then we had this horrible night where she woke up at 12 for her bottle, then wouldn't settle back down till 5:15am! She woke up SO many times I lost count..and I'm saying like 15/20 times for sure!
What can I do about this? It's very difficult as it then screws up the whole day because she will wake up tired, I'm never too sure about her actual wake up time, and she will want to start her first nap early or if I push her she will be overtired. It's driving me crazy..I fix naps and night sleep goes out the window. I try to limit naps to fix night sleep and everything's a whole mess! Oh and she's only been drinking four 4oz bottles and one 5oz. Not too sure what happened.
