My 4 month old takes 4 naps during the day, but only catnap for 30min. I do have to rock him to nap or sometimes hold him till he's drowsy, then he'll fall asleep on his own in the swing.When he wakes up after 30min, I try to rock him back to sleep, sometimes he would go back to sleep, but sometimes he won't. And sometimes he wakes up crying till his next feeding which is another hour away. What should I do? Would CIO help? And if he wakes up after 30min nap not crying, but if I don't pick him up soon, he will start crying...so should I just let him cry himself back to nap? And if I want to start the ferber method, do I start with bedtime sleep first or do both bedtime sleep and nap CIO all at once?
