So my 4 month old wakes up around 9am everyday, goes down for her nap around 1130-12 o'clock and only sleeps for 30 mins.. then she's awake and babbling and playing until around 3-4, when she goes for another 30 min nap... then she's awake until bathtime, 630-7, and drinks for about 1hr and a half before bed. She's super cranky around our dinner time, 530-6 and I can't get her to sleep for longer than 30 mins! I try putting her in her playpen - doesn't help. I put her in her crib and same thing, she only sleeps for 30 mins. I feed on demand, and only breastfeed. I guess my question is - what can I do to get her to nap more? I know that if she slept for longer she wouldn't be so cranky but I really don't know what to do!
