My little man is a cat napper throughout the day. Sleeps anywhere from 10 minutes to sometimes 2 hours (on a rare day). I put him down when I know that he is tired in his crib and he just wont fall asleep. Im finding that if I can get him to sleep its in his swing, when Im walking or during a car ride. I of course know that this isnt good and would just like him to sleep in his crib. When night time rolls around I bath him around 9-9:30, massage, read to him and give him a bottle. I can normally get him sleeping in his crib at night from 10 to 2:30 am. I give him a bottle when he wakes up but its like he wide awake again. Im finding Im normally up from 3:00 - 7:00. I get fusterated and bring him in the bed with me, and eventually back in the swing in our room becasue Im exhausted, where he tends to fall asleep for about an hour or so. Ive been keeping track of his eating and sleeping and its all over the place. I try to keep a rountine to help him sleep but how do you get your child to sleep when he wide awake all the time?
