My almost two months old is a super short napper! I would either rock or put her drowsy but wake and let her fussy a bit. Either way, she would nap only 15 mins or less....in crib, my bed, car set etc then eyes open but not done sleeping! If she closes her eyes again, she would open them every few minutes. Only nap longer if held, because she is more willing to close her eyes back. For night, she would sleep on a good night from 11 pm ish till 7 am with one feeding! I also have white noise on. Will she outgrow this? What do I do? Thx much appreciated.

He is 6 months now. He also didnt respond to swaddling--scratch that he did respond by screaming and thrashing about. lol I have a highly alert baby!

My child does not take naps. Maybe once every now and then hsi naps will be longer than 45 mins, but he also sleeps well at night. Some kids are just too Alert for naps. I am told they eventually get into a sleep pattern.



Good Luck
