    We are in a similar situation. Ds is almost 3.5 and he will fall asleep in his own bed (I have to sit with him, so I would like to know when I can eventually just say 'good night' and just walk out). But then he wakes around 11pm and comes into out bed. He sleeps between dh and I.

I have tried patting and shushing but she just gets hysterical. The only way I can get more sleep is to go walking in the pram but it would be so nice to be able to stay home. What routines do you suggest for a catnapper?
    this now happens to my 10 weeks old. He does need some cuddles to settle for naps but can put himself to sleep once in the cot. But he cries after 30-45 minutes and I am not sure if he wants to continue napping (not hungry not dirty). If I leave him to self-settle he will cry till he wakes. So I attend by giving him dummy and sshhing but it doesnt work. i resort to carrying to resettle and put him into the cot again but if it happens more than 2 times I pop him into the swing and he can nap for longer. My question is also how do I resettle bub successfully from one sleep cycle to the next?

    and is sleeping for 30-45mins called catnapping? As I know one sleep cycle is about 50mins.

    I found with ds1 and 2 they started to stretch their sleeps from around 8 months of age from 40/50 min to 90min-2hrs Without me resettling.
