More ?'s from me. Seems that all I have time to post these days.
Our twins are 3 mos old, or they will be this Thurs. Our daughter sleeps great at night. She will sleep right through til morning but she's having napping issues.
I try to catch her "sleepy" cues, rubbing eyes, yawning, etc. When I do I put her in the crib to nap as soon as I see them. When I don't I put her in her crib when I catch her sleeping. Usually she'll put herself to sleep if I catch her on time but then after that 1st phase of sleep she won't self soothe to put herself into that second phase. She will sleep 30-45mins and that's it.
Am I expecting too much from her? Should I expect her to only sleep 30-45 mins? Should I let her CIO and fall back to sleep, if I'm lucky? I am afraid this will disturb her twin brother sleeping in the crib next to her (his own crib). He can tolerate considerable noise, as can she, but I can't expect him to tolerate her screaming.
Any advise would be helpful. Thanks.
