DS is almost 6 months and he still catnaps during the day. It's starting to drive me a little bit crazy as I need some decent time to myself during the day to get stuff done and have a break.
I don't do a rigid day routine with him but I do at night before bed. He is an ok night sleeper (still wakes between 1-4 times a night though). I'm a little hesitant to do rigid day routines as I have so many friends/family members IRL that do this and their babies absolutely refuse to sleep anywhere but at home in the cot, so they are chained to being at home x times per day so their kids go to sleep. I like to be out and about with DS doing activities so I'm not sure that this suits me. Even though DS catnaps he will at least sleep while I'm out in his pram and in the car (often much better than at home).
Is there anyway to help with catnapping without having strict routines?
