I'm having a hard time getting my 5 month old to nap. He usually falls asleep while nursing, but once I transfer him to his crib, he "wakes up", usually with a big grin on his face, as if he's saying, "I won again mommy!" Sometimes he'll stay asleep, but only for about 15-30 minutes. I try to stick to a pretty regular nap schedule (9am and 1pm) - if he misses one, we try again an hour or two later. Some days I feel like all we're doing is *trying* to nap! He's happy but rubs his eyes a lot.
He sleeps great at night - we have a bedtime routine that starts between 6:30 - 7pm (bath, book, nurse, bed) and it works great. He usually wakes up for one feeding around 3am, then is back to sleep until about 6:30 or 7am. We're thankful that he sleeps well at night, but the no napping during the day is wearing me out. I work from home and find it hard to do it while he's awake because I feel like I'm ignoring him.
Am I obsessing too much about his daytime sleep??? What's normal for a 5 month old?
