    the crying

    Advertisements
    Zoey needs a nap and is fighting it . I laid her down in the bassinet in the dark room with a passi. Shes not hungray and not wet- its defiantly tired cause she is nodding off a little and waking up cranky. I know theres nothing else I can do but shes still crying.
    How do you deal with the crying?
    ps. this mid- day nap is the only one she fights every other time she drifts off peacefully

    Anabelle is doing the same thing
    She hates taking naps during the day.
    I normally give in and let her nurse for a bit.
    At night she is out seconds after we put her in her crib.

    Where do you put her for her naps?

    Swaddling helped with Hayden when he was that age.

    Also your baby is only 2 months old, not old enough to really understand nap time. As far as she is concerned you just dropped her in a soft cushy barren wasteland and then walked off. Babies are dramatic

    That is so true.

    Also, maybe try putting her down a bit earlier than normal? Over tired babys have a hard time going to sleep.

    Like mine, right now. She finally fell asleep, then I sneezed and she startled awake and is now blowing spit bubbles lol

    Aww, be patient mommy. It takes a while to get to the age where you can actually do something productive while they sleep.

    We got bedtime now pretty good, so figured we could work on naptime.

    The cat just made me start over! I just saw yellow eyes peaking over the couch at zoe's wiggling feet and when i pulled him away her grabbe the blanket with his claws , waking her up
