I have a 12 week old ds and I'm having a few issues.
He seems to be sleeping normally overnight, but get to the day sleeps, ugh!
He will generally awake by 6:30am, given a bottle around 6:45am and by 8:00am-8:30am, becomes grizzly, eyes get red, doesn't want to smile or play anymore, basically showing tired signs, so I put him down for a nap and within 45 mins-1hr he is wide awake, alert and screams not to go back to asleep, but if I try to rock him, ssshhh him, pat him back to sleep, it's useless. He is bright-eyed, bushy tail and ready to go again, but sometimes remains grizzly. I feel like I'm endlessly FF him, as sometimes he will go 1.5hr-2 hrs and wants another bottle again. It's been 4 years since my first, so I can't really remember what my ds #1 was like at this age. It seems when he awakes after 45 mins, it's really hard to entertain him, so he is content, but if he gets a good 3-3.5hr sleep, it's great.

12 week old day nap issues

My DS was and still is like this. He's sort of settled now.
We found sleeping on his side helped a great deal during the day.
We've now got a Love to Dream swaddle me up bag. He loves it. He knows it's bed time when he goes in that.
Some people won't agree with me (but it worked for us) DS sleeps on a pillow during the day. I check him regularly so he is safe.
But I feel your pain OP.

How many hours at night is he sleeping?
My dd 4.5 months only sleeps 1 hour blocks in the day twice plus maybe 30 mins somewhere
The long day sleeps ended at about 6 weeks.
Once my dd has had at least a 30 min sleep, she won't sleep for another 3 hours.

It is hard to entertain isn't it in that 3 hours or so. I am just finding now at 4.5 months that it's getting easier

Sounds like my son.. He's 16 weeks now and sleeps better in the day now but some days he's awake after 45 minutes.
