My dd takes one nap a day. I nurse her to sleep, and she will sleep solo for about 40 mins. Then she wakes up and I try to get her back to sleep. Sometimes it works, but many times the only reason it works is because I take her in the pitch black bathroom and bounce her. If that happens, I can't set her down and am stuck holding her for an hour. I can't do this anymore; she's too heavy. When she doesn't go back to sleep, she becomes way tired before bedtime and is a lot fussier than when she naps longer. She will also wake a lot more often than she does if she had a good nap.
Any advice on getting her past that 40 min mark? She has a dark room (thanks to ghetto cardboard in the window) and white noise. There is no difference if I lay with her or not. Part of me wonders if I ought to get a high weight limit swing and put her in it... Do they even make those?
Argh. Any thoughts are appreciated.
