Q & A: Two month old doesn’t nap!

Hi there, My two month old son doesn't nap during the day. He cat naps for maybe 15-minutes after he falls asleep nursing, but very rarely has longer naps. If we go out during the day (car ride or stroller ride) he will nap the entire time we are out, but at home, it's party time. Any tips or advice on getting him to nap longer? Please & Thank you. Carri Hi Carri, As a general rule, it's tough to predict what any 2 month old...

Q & A: A great sleeper who can’t fall asleep on his own

Hello, My four month old sleeps beautifully through the night (I am VERY LUCKY I know!) from about 10:00 until 7:45, then goes right back down after a feeding until 11:00 or 12:00. This is amazing but then he doesn't nap at all the rest of the day, so he only gets about 12-13 hours total (because he is up for an hour for feeding and diaper change, slow eater). I have no problems with this,but would prefer he gets the recommended 14.  It is...

Q & A: The Ferber method?

My six month old is up eight times a night and only sleeps 45 minutes at the most for naps.  He needs to be rocked and patted for at least 20 minutes to fall asleep.  Every time he wakes up, I have to repeat this.  I’m assuming the Ferber method is the best method I should try in order to get some sleep back! Rhonda Rhonda, Yes. The Ferber method is definitely a great place to begin. Actually, six months is a perfect time to begin....

Q & A: I have a frequent waker

Hello Rosemary – Jorja was born in June 2011 and was a ‘difficult’ baby – call it colic, call it whatever you want. She cried or nursed and that’s it – slept intermittently. NOW I have a five month old who has left her fussiness behind but I am left with a frequent waker. She wakes every two hours or so through the night to nurse...sometimes because she is hungry, sometimes just to nurse. Problem being, beside the fact that I...

Q & A: Waking up too early

Hi Rosemary! I saw your new blog on Oh Baby and thought I'd see what you think! I have an 18 month old who has never been a great sleeper. He goes down REALLY well - we never have battles at bedtime and he's generally in bed and asleep by about 7pm.  The troubles have always been his wake-up time, which range from 4am-6am.  Half the time he wakes up and he's soaked through his diaper, the other times he's just awake. Sometimes we can get...

Q & A: Should a two year old sleep with a pillow?

My son just turned 2 and started to climb out of his crib. I have the kind that converts to a toddler bed and figured that was my cue to convert it before he fell and was injured. Since it's the same bed, same bedding, he seems to have adjusted fine. What are your thoughts on pillows? My son is a tummy sleeper (I didn't let him when he was young, but now there's nothing I can do about it). Should I wait to introduce a pillow? I don't know if he...

How much sleep do you get?

The early years in your child's life are supposed to be amongst the most exciting. I know how difficult it can be to enjoy this time if you are feeling exhausted and sleep deprived. As a mom of four growing children, I know how important it is to have a good night’s sleep. Because my children were born in the span of five and a half years, it was crucial that they all slept well. I thoroughly researched and tried various methods related to...
