she is still young but my friend found that scheduling naps really helped her dd's sleep... Example : she would get up at 8 take 1h30-2h nap from 11-1, then from 4-6 and then bedtime at about 10. If she was tired before naptime, they would try to strech it out, playing with her, etc... I guess it works, since she sleeps pretty much through the night in her own bed...
We never put ours on schedule because he has his own schedule, waking up at 9 or 10, napping 30 mins- 1h at 12, then 3, then 6 and going to bed at about 10. BUT he is still a "bad" sleeper at 5.5 months, waking every 2h to 'nurse'....
