I feel like I am always on this tforum complaining but I have no where else to go where the issue won't be blamed on co-sleeping. After nine months my baby has finally settled into some kind of semi-predictable schedule. She naps everythree hours and then goes to bed about four hours after her 2d nap. She rarely sleeps for longer than 45 mionutes (sometimes she sleeps for an hour). The problem is this isn't enough but nothing makes her sleep longer. Sometimes I lay down with her in the mornings and she may stay asleep at the breast a little longer. I can not lay down with her in the afternoons b/c we are at my job. I tired the NCCSS tips on lengthing naps and it was liuke a not funny joke that resulted in me waking her up acidently even earlier than normal. I don't know what I'm looking for here. I guess just sypmpathy. I am so tired. She woke me up at four to play athen she nursed from four to 6:30 when finally I just gave up and got her up. Then she slept from 9:05-9:50 then again from 1:30-2:10 and she is so crabby and tired and doesn't know what she wants. Plus now I either have to try to keep her awake for 5 hours which seems cruel and impossible or let her take a nap at five which means she will stay up untill at least 10. I am honestly near tears. It would be one thing if it seemed like these naps were enough and she was in a great mood but she is so high needs and grouchy. Plus the worse we sleep at night the harder it is for me to deal with days like this. Thank you for letting me get it out.

Have you tried a swing? Lots of people seem to have success with them.
