comment How do I help my 4 month old nap longer?
Thank you so much for your detailed response! I attempted the "hold until asleep again" after her morning nap but she was say too Hello World! for it to work. I'm going to lengthen her awake time today and see what happens. I did suspect she wasn't quite tired enough for her nap, but then she was showing all the signs. Good to know it can just be a terrible cycle.

comment How do I help my 4 month old nap longer?
Thanks for your answer. The more I'm reading on the topic, the more this seems normal at 4 months old. She does sleep for 6 hour stretches at night, so I don't think it's a hunger issue. Either way, I can't push her to do anything anyway because she does what she wants! :)

comment How do I help my 4 month old nap longer?
Thanks for answering! I watch for sleep signs and I'm getting pretty good at catching her before she's over-tired. She's only 4 months old so there's no way she can go until 3pm without a nap. She is only awake 1 1/2 hours at a time (2 max) before she starts showing definite drowsy signs. Right now she takes 4 to 5 naps per day. I'd like to consolidate that into 2 long naps. She eats every 4 hrs. And I do have a routine before I put her down. I don't have much of a problem getting her to sleep- it's just keeping her asleep that's the issue.

comment Is it okay for an infant to sleep 10-12 hours at night?
I agree. My 4 month old doesn't sleep through the night. But I've read that 4 months is when a lot of babies do. I was just trying to be reassuring that nothing is wrong.
