My child doesn't nap well. 20 mins here ...10 mins there. Every time I try to put him down he starts crying 10 mins later if that. The swing only works occationally and he will fall asleep in the car but as soon as it turns off he is up. He is 4 months old.

My son is the same way...I tried swaddling just his arms today and that worked a little better. Got two 30 min naps in today. Some babies just dont nap, but they sleep well at night. Thats how I was....never a napper and we think he is taking after me. If you start to see circles or think he is just too exhuasted, talk to the pedi about some different ideas.
