My 3 month old (almost 4months) never wants to take a nap. She takes a couple little cat naps about 30 min on average. Which makes for a grumpy baby in the evening. She sleeps good at night usually and gets up around 8am usually. Until recently she keeps getting up earlier and earlier (4am or 5am) because she is hungry. She does go back to sleep after she eats and will sleep until 9am or 10am. I don't know if she needs to start a little rice cereal before bed. So what can I do to encourage naps and longer evening sleep?View Thread
