    Default Broken Sleep

    Hi Everyone,
    Im after some advice....
    My DD is 11 weeks old and is very alert and playful and shows plenty of signs when she is ready for a sleep. She generally sleeps for 2 - 3 hours when she goes down each time during the day. But in the last week or so her afternoon sleeps are really unsettled. She appears to be asleep and every 20 - 30 minutes starts crying, which goes for about a minute or 2. When she settles by being rocked or patted appears to go back to sleep only to have the same thing happen again.
    Is this normal, is she just not needing much sleep in the afternoon?
    If its not normal, any suggestions on how to get her to settle into the deep sleep cycle?

    Subscribing! My DS is 11 weeks and doing the same...will not resettle after half an hour to an hour of sleep during the day unless he is held in my arms. Today I've given up! Will wait and see how overtired he is by the evening.
