Have you read Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child by Weisbluth? It saved my baby! It talks about sleep deprived babies and some on how to solve the problems. Sleeping Through the Night by Jodi Mindell was also helpful.
My baby stopped napping around 6 weeks old, and was extremely overtired/constantly sleep deprived from about 1 month to 4 months. The strategies are probably different at this age, but I watched like a hawk for sleep cues and nursed him to sleep and held him throughout his nap to get him less sleep deprived. Once he was less sleep deprived, we started ferber/cry it out sleep training to get him to sleep in his crib. It has been 4 months since we started cry it out, and he still sometimes cries for an hour and a half in his crib, but most of the time, he goes to sleep without drama, and he's not sleep deprived any more. Best of luck!!View Thread
