    Default How many naps for 4 month old?

    Hi all,
    My LO is 15 weeks so nearly approaching the 4 month mark and I'm wondering how many naps per day he should be taking. ATM, he takes 4 naps which last between 1-2 hours. I usually have to resettle him at the 45 minute mark. Bedtime usually around 8:30ish and he has slept through till 6:30 or 7 before but the past week or so he has been waking once or twice at random times through the night for feeds. Also, he tends to wake around the 5 am mark to talk to himself. Usually he will gurgle for a bit and go back to sleep which is great, but if he doesn't, it really throws his whole day off!

    Should I be thinking about cutting out his last evening nap and putting him down for an earlier bedtime?

    At that age I was still going by DDs cues. It was a while ago (she's almost 3 now) but I think she probably had about 4 sleeps per day or varying lengths. She was having feeds every 3 hours during the day and napping in between, so whatever that works out to be.

    I don't think we really worried about what time she went down for the night until after maybe 6 months or so. She kind of fell into a routine herself.

    It all sounds pretty normal to me, I'd just do whatever keeps bub the most settled for the time being.

    My Dd is 4 months and she has roughly 3-4 sleeps a day.. They only last 30-45 mins each though and I don't bother resettling, she has always been a cat napper so I have just gone with the flow.
