    Default When did your baby grow out of cat napping?

    My DS is 3 months old today and for about the last 2 weeks has refused to sleep longer than 40 minutes - no matter how much resettling I try.

    Just curious - those of you who had babies who cat napped, did they outgrow it on there own? How old were they? Did you do anything that helped?

    I am finding that I am dreading the days as he can take up to half an hour to settle, then sleep for 30-40 minutes then in 30-40 minutes he is tired again! Feels like ground hog day and I would love to know when to expect a change.

    My twins around 16 months. I was resettling at the 40 minute mark for pretty much every nap til then. They moved to 1 nap a couple of months later and since have been doing 1.5hrs +.

    Lol Shani - i'm the opposite. She sleeps all day and wakes frequently at night.

    Hopefully both our babies sleep longer periods in those times they aren't.

    Haha, yeah I am lucky he knows day from night, just so annoying having to spend all day putting him to sleep! Could be worse tho!

    How long is he having awake time during sleeps? He might need a little more awake time before going back to bed, so he's tired enough to sleep longer. If hes awake for an hour usually try putting him down aft an hour and 10mins. Not sure how long they usually are awak for at this age as my son is now 2. But i have always pushed his sleep time by 10mins until he was sleeping longer =) good luck, it can feel like you are always feeding or putting them to bed or resettling but it does get easier =)
