Do you have a swing? When my Riley has trouble sleeping I pop her in there. She will do the short little cat naps or only sleep when I am snuggling her something during the day. If she gets really cranky I put her in her swing. She will sleep for a couple hours in that thing. My sister-in-law told me to try it and it really worked well.

My 6week old is the same way! She only takes little naps and then is up for hours and gets crabby because she is so sleepy. I bottle feed and we switched her formula recently and that seems to have helped & has helped with gas too.

Hi my little one was like that for a good few weeks too. He would only have 20 -30 min sleeps and by the afternoon he was cranky. Sometimes i took him for a walk in the pram, he liked the motion feeling. My little one is now 13 weeks and has a sleep in the morning and a sleep in the afternoon. Do you have a routine at all? I also found that he became very relaxed and more likely to fall asleep after a bath.

It will get better I promise! By 4 months you sh ould have a baby capable of adapting to a schedule.
