    Naps

    Hi Everyone. I have a question about naps. When my baby was 0-3.5 months old she would take wonderfully long naps. Somtimes up to 3 hours at a time. Recently, her naps have been getting shorter and shorter and can sometimes last only 30 minutes. I know that she is still tired when she wakes up from these but does not go back to sleep easially at all. I know that she is not simply just a catnapper, becasue if I take a nap with her or hold her while she is napping she will sleep 1-3 hours. Any advice for helping to teach my 4 month old to nap longer when she is sleeping by herself?
