DD who is 11 weeks old has reduced the length of ALL her day naps to between 20 and 40 minutes (mostly 25min). It's driving me nuts. I've tried everything to get her to sleep longer :
Bassinet, pram, carrier, car, in my lap - short naps only.
Lengthening or shortening awake time doesn't matter. Tried from 45mins to 90mins and everything in between still only a short nap.
Tried feeding to sleep, tried resettling after she wakes, tried waiting to see if she will self settle back to sleep (without letting her get hysterical). No she won't go back to sleep!
Am I missing anything? I can settle her to sleep pretty easily: I change nappy, swaddle, hold for a bit then put her down and pat or give her dummy and use white noise. This usually takes about 10mins.
After her bath in the evening she has a nice long feed then DH settles her and she'll sleep for 4-6 hrs (yay) no probs and over night she is fine just her day naps. Yesterday she had 5 short naps!! Today we are already up to 4 because she woke up early.
Is this a developmental thing she's going thru? Please tell me she will change soon we are both tired and cranky by the end of the day
