Today’s question is from tired mama Yvonne and she writes:
“My newborn takes crappy naps. She will wake up (like clockwork) right about 30 minutes needing us to soothe her back to sleep with rocking or a paci. I have tried countless times to try to put her to bed drowsy (but awake), but it never works. We spend on average 1 – 1.5 hrs trying to get our newborn to sleep only to have her wake up 30 minutes later (almost 60-70% of the time) and start the whole marathon of trying to get her back to sleep again. Could it be that 6 weeks is just too soon for her to figure out how to go to sleep without our help?”
So if your baby will only take 30 minute catnaps (maybe 45 on a good day), stay tuned because today’s blog post is for you. I’ll share 3 easy tips that will have you newborn taking longer naps in no time.
