DD has been a catnapper since she stopped her constant newborn sleeping at around 8 or 9 weeks.
I've tried extending and shortening her wake periods. Tried "wake to sleep". Tried letting her fuss till she goes back to sleep. Tried putting her back to sleep right when she wakes. Nothing works. She is tired, barely lasting through 2-hr wake periods and I think it's affecting her night time sleep rather negatively lately.
Also, I am really REALLY fed up with having to put her down to sleep 5 times a day. It's exhausting and I sooo time-consuming. Not only are her naps too short for me to get anything done (30 mins) but then I spend 20-30 minutes every 1.5 hrs putting her back to sleep. Seriously. It's a hellish and monotonous existence over here.
No, it's not possible for her to regularly nap on me. And when I'm out and about and she does nap in the ergo she still wakes at 30-40 mins.
Anyway- is there something I haven't tried?
What worked for your catnapper?
