We are having a similar problem here! My almost 11 month old, who has had periods of decent sleep, is having a bad period again. This has been going on since he was around 9 months. We have night wakings that last an hour or two, plus his regular waking to nurse at 5:30a. He's waking up about an hour earlier than usual for the day. He's sleeping for about 30-40minutes for naps and will only take two naps. Maybe twice a week he will sleep for over an hour at a nap. He did 40 minute naps (almost all the time, with a day here and there where he would crash/make up and take a couple long naps and sleep in in the morning) from the time he was 6 weeks until he was about 4 months old. So frustrating. I know it's a sleep cycle and he can't transition, but I don't know what to do.
When this happened at 5 months, it took me a few weeks to realize it was time for a schedule change. Once we went down to two naps things improved. But I do not think he is ready to drop a nap this time. He is so tired and cranky!
I'm hoping someone with advice will chime in. Sorry I can't help other than to say, there are some who understand!View Thread
