    Default Catnapping.

    OMG I have this going on.....and a REALLY cranky/tired 8MO....sometimes you pull out the big guns (boob,wear to sleep etcetc...) and even that doesn't work!

    ....and in that situation feel like using the 'big gun' on yourself

    Currently trapped in bed with DD who would only nap snuggled up to me on mums big bed. Bored out of my mind but making sure she gets over an hour to take the edge off. Thankfully no other child to care for (yet!)

    Dd2 was like that. I just wore her in the ergo all day and swapped to the pram when tired.

    It does pass!

    I find myself rocking and patting ds repeating very softly over and over "just relax". I've realised that I'm actually talking to myself not him

    It does pass, its true DS was a catnapper from about 2-6 months, then slowly got better till he was a champion napper from 9 months to 3. He now happily still goes for a rest in his room for an hour- where he is now listening to audiobooks and playing with stuffed toys

    I have always dealt with cat napping by sleeping with them or babywearing (preferably on my back out of my face if they are annoying me).

    yep my dd was a catnapper till 6mths then i got a sleep dr in to help me.
    all i did was stress out and get anrgy with her - was hard not to because i was doing everything right the sleep dr even said so! she was just a very very difficult baby. still is. I needed to get sleep into her (sleep promotes sleep) so the sleep dr said to do it however i can which was to sit on the couch for 3hrs everyday and nurse her, rocking her bak to sleep after every sleep cycle. I ended up sleeping with her, i was so tired. Once we were both rested (about a week of this) we did the settling sleeping in her bedroom and cot. It was a long process but we got there with much perserverence and she's an amazing sleeper now.
    ds is only 5 weeks but will cat nap for his morning and evening sleep so i baby wear him at those times to save me the stress and dd needs me at those times so its just easier than going into settle him every 5 seconds.
    so i dont have muh advice, just that ive been there too and u can only do what you know. bub's will pick up on your frustration and be even harder to settle if they sense it from you, so maybe thats why ppl say to relax and go with it?
    Only so many times u can stay relaxed after 5hrs of settling tho. i remember those days.
