The land of the no naps!

Hey ladies
Well Simon sleeps AWESOME at night now, but naps sooooooooooo crappily!!! He will sleep for maybe 1/2 hour max on his own (usually 3-4 times a day). I got almost 2 hours out of him today but that was only because I lied down with him and pop boob or pacifer in when he woke up.

Anyone else live in the land of no naps????

yep, he takes the same 3-4 30 minute naps a day.

Yep, sounds pretty normal! Short, frequent naps with the occasional long nap is what we typically have, too.

Yep, Landon has pretty much always been like this - usually three 45 minute naps/day. You can almost set a timer to him & exactly 45 minutes later, he's awake!

Lol!! Sophie always naps great in the morning... give or take 2-3hours after she's been up she'll pass back out for 2-3hours... but after that it's all downhill for naps! She'll nap maybe twice more and for less than an hour each time...

Right there with you! I'm lucky if I can ever get more than 30 min out of Lucas, and that's 2, maybe 3 times a day. But he sleeps great at night, which I'll take over naps any day!

Same here. Probably 3-4 20 minute naps and then a good 1-2 hr one in the afternoon.
I just wish she'd sleep at night..... :sleep::argh::coffee:

And here I was thinking a 45 minute nap was good! Did you know, that a baby's sleep cycle is 45 minutes long and that's why they tend to sleep in increments of 45 minutes. Teagan's morning nap is usually 1.5 hours. Her midday and late afternoon naps are then about 45 minutes.

Clara tries to do the same, but if I can catch her just as she's waking up and pop the paci back in her mouth I can double her nap time. Sometimes I can get 1/2 hour or 45 minutes out of her, sometimes 2 hours, it all just depends on how on top of it I am. From the sounds of it, I should count my blessings that I am able to get more sometimes.

Man that is rough with no naps. Odin is usually a pretty good nap taker but has been having some issues since last week. Now he only wants to nap in arms again and wakes from a dead sleep the second I put him down. Seriously, if I could get a stand in boob for me I would be set!
