wont sleep through the day Lock Rss

hi

my 5 month little girl wont sleep through the day. if i am lucky she will have 20 to 40 min cat naps between feeds (feeding every 3 hours) maybe 2 or 3 times a day.

i shouldnt complain as she is sleeping through the night, and has been doing so for a while. i am more concerned about her not getting her rest through the day, as you can clearly see she is tired but insists on fighting it.

any suggestions????

Hi Annette

Yes your daughter is catnapping, anything under 1 hour is considered a cat nap. Because she knows how to sleep during the night you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting her to have longer naps during the day if you follow the settling techniques on<a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> page and resettle her using the techniques if she wakes under one hour. You need to watch for her tired signs and act on then straight away, an over tired baby is harder to settle.

Good luck, Maree
