how long does your baby sleep?

Viorica - posted on 01/30/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




My baby girl is 4 months next week and we have a sleep problem. During the day she naps only 30 - 40 min 3-4 times a day. If we go outside (with the car or stroller) she still wakes up but goes again to sleep and can sleep up to 3 hours! If we are in the house ..... no more than 40 min. I have tried everything... but doesn't seem to work. She goes very easy to sleep so not putting her down is the problem. The problem is keeping her asleep! During the night she sleeps from 8.30 to 1 am - eats and goes again to sleep till 5 am - eats and at 7 woks up. I don't know what to do to help her sleep better. Is it normal for her age??? She is usually happy during the day but still, I think she doesn't get enough sleep! Please help!!!!!

4 naps a day is good. Every kid has different sleep needs. This is very normal in fact my 8 month old still does this some nights and only has 1-2 naps a day.

Sounds normal to me. My daughters woke up even more frequently than that to feed. They like to take cat naps. Every child is different I guess.
