Hi All. I posted some time ago about my 4 month old not sleeping at night. Well, we sleep trained her and now she sleeps fairly soundly through the night. However, during the day she will only take little 45 minute cat naps. She is CONSTANTLY tired. How do I get her to nap longer? Should I let her CIO until she has been in her bed for a full hour? (Oh: when I put her down for her naps she goes into her bed awake, but tired and puts herself to sleep)View Thread
Hi. I am new here. I have a daughter who is about 3.5 months old. She was born 10lbs, 7oz (yes, vaginally) and has steadily gained a lot of weight since! Up until about a week ago she would only sleep in my arms at night and she'd "snack" all night. Last week we let her CIO and THANK GOD it has been working so far. She cries for only a few minutes before naps/bedtime. Since she was used to eating all night I have been nursing her at 11pm before I go to bed and again about 4 hours later. I go in and pull her out of bed while she is asleep. I do NOT let her wake up out of hunger. So, what feed do you think I can drop and when? I'm thinking about ending the 11pm feeding and just doing one feed in the middle of her night for a while before I attempt to quit the night feedings altogether. Any input would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
