Hi ladies, I'm new here and extremely sleep deprived like most mommies! My LO is 8 weeks and does not stay asleep for more than 25 minutes during naps. He is swaddled and I use white noise next to his bed (right now he sleeps in a nap nanny). Hubby and I bounce/rock him to sleep and I've tried holding him the whole time and sometimes that helps him stay asleep longer but not always. I can't figure out why he can't or won't stay asleep. I'm starting to wonder what I'm doing wrong and would like to know if anyone else experienced this and if this will pass (man I hope so). Any advice is sincerely appreciated. He is EBF by the way and right on track with weight gain. Thanks so much!! By the way, he does sleep longer stretches at night but does wake often then a well. His longest stretch is probably 2.5 hrs. Really need some encouraging feedback!
