Baby keep having broken naps and need to be carried to nap. At night is ok except from 3am onwards where he also starts to hv broken sleep and wants to be held to sleep. What are the reasons and will he improve soon? He cries hard till vomit if he does not sleep well...so we give in and carry him to sleep. Hope it gets better as he grows older..6mth old??

Ye, this is a tough challenge which seems inevitable. The first part i.e. first abt to doze off seems easier to put down.....but the subsequent attempts to put him down those broken 30mins naps always tougher as he cries whenever we put him down before fully asleep..

This is tough, no one likes to see their baby vomit or hear them cry. For now I'd continue to soothe the baby until just barely awake and then lay them down to finish dozing off. Give it a week or two and keep trying. Learning to settle yourself to sleep is a skill and you want your child to learn to soothe sooner than later. Good luck
