Spoke to my CHN today about the naps, she said make sure the room is dark & no stimulation in the room, also going into settle before they usually wake up will work, it will help them to learn to settle on their own.
We had Myles weighed today he's 13wks 3 days & 6.725kgs... Big healthy boy!

Nicsta - my boy used to be captain catnapper as I called him. He would always wake up at the 20/30 min mark and itd drive me crazy. Tried everything from putting him in pram/swing/bouncy chair etc. Never made a difference.
I did try what the above child health nurse suggested where I put him to nap in his room and the instant he went to sleep (which he did quite easily)...id time him. The instant 15 mins came along I'd sneak back in and make myself comfy on his floor. Invariably he'd start stirring and id really quickly put dummy back in mouth and just really gently shushed him. That actually worked and now he's gotten (touch wood) to the point where he only starts stirring and trying to be awake at around the 1.5 hour mark. Sometimes if I try the dummy/shush trick on him then...he actually sleeps for just ocer 2 hours! Omg sooo nice lol.

Just tried it unfortunately it failed she just started crying. She fought the nap so hard in the beginning, so doesn't seem worth it for 25 mins. I hope it's a wonder week....

Sounds like heaps of us have issues with sleeping during the day! Orlando is the same! He only sleeps one cycle 35-45 mins at a time! He is sleeping better at night now....it's usually a struggle and takes about 3 or 4 goes to get him down for the night but then he will sleep anywhere between 3 and 5 hours, be up for a change/feed then go down for another 2-4 hours, then the same again until morning. He goes down properly for the night anywhere from 8.30-11pm. When we put him to bed at around 7-7.30 he's always up after an hour so we'll work on that...the main thing is that he is sleeping in longer blocks now much to my relief! As he is sleeping more at night he is going down for more naps during the day...but like I said just short ones! I put him for his naps in his cot for the first time today and he's not sleeping any better or worse so I think I'll continue letting him sleep in the cot during the day from now on. It won't be long before he's out of his bassinet! 12 weeks old today...going to MCHN on Tuesday so will share his stats then but I think he will be around 6.3kg and he's over 60cms now. We're still recovering from colds and so Orlando is still congested and also has a little but of conjunctivitis in his left eye which I've started bathing. Not much else to report...he's still eating round the clock so desperately trying to express as we've got our nieces engagement on Sunday which I want to take bottles for! Happy Friday everyone!
