My 10-week old sleeps pretty well at night - not consistent yet, but never wakes up more than twice when I put her down at 6:45 p.m. and she is back up at 7:00 a.m. (either wakes around midnight and 5:00 a.m. to breastfeed - sometimes only wakes once at around 3:00 or 4:00 a.m.).

I think this sounds pretty typical. In a perfect world shed take 2-3 1.5 hour naps but we all know that isn't how it goes. Your night time sounds magical ! Is baby breast fed ? She could be hungry maybe. In the early months jt always seemed to me that it was all I did was feed and try to get a nap in and really that Is a you do 10 weeks is so little I personally wouldn't push things and I agree 10 weeks is too early to cry it out 5-6 months is when I think I read that is easiest. I know this seems never ending but it'll get better !

My baby is 11 weeks and only naps 30 to 45 mins. She naps 4 to 5 times a day.
