Not sure if this is the right place to post, but wanted to get some advice from you lovely mums. I haven’t been on here for a while, but as we don’t live in the UK at the moment I don’t know who to ask…..
My daughter who is 1 in July only naps for 30 mins at a time. She used to nap twice a day and now it’s sometimes only once a day. I’m pretty sure this isn’t enough - she’s been napping like this for a long time now. She usually gets to sleep by me feeding her or in the sling. I don’t get much quiet time with her alone as also have a loud 3 year old son. She used to nap for hours when first born. I did try feeding her back to sleep - but this didn’t work, but I also perhaps haven’t given it enough of a chance. If we’re out she’ll nap in the sling, car and if we’re at home i’ll put her down on my bed - all of those last for exactly 30minutes! My son could really do with some longer naps so i can spend some quality time with him and have some time to do other stuff too…..
She sleeps pretty well at night - wakes in the night for feeds, but goes back to sleep quickly. Also, if she goes to bed on time, about 7, she usually wakes 30minues later but goes back quickly with a feed…...
I’m very lax at routine and schedule and each day can be so different. I remember with my son around this age he always used to have a nap around 12-2pm.
Would love to hear some tips for getting her naps longer, or if other mums have had similar experiences…..
