Hey there

This is my second bub so I should know what Im doing right? rolleyes.gif

My little girl is 7 weeks old (almost 8). Im doing a mixture of rocking and self settling (only because she isn't settling in my arms so I just put her down and she soon figures it out) but lately she's not been sleeping much in the day at all. Great overnight, so I can't complain.

She's usually just catnapping (40min) in the morning as she's pulled from pillar to post with the toddler (in the car/pram/sling etc). Up until about a week ago we'd come home for the arvo and she'd do a big sleep - 2 to 4 hours which was great. Lately she's been just catnapping another 40m and I know she must need more by the arvo.

I guess my question is - do I perservere with the sleep after the 40min catnap, or get her up and try again a little later. Im not sure if she's fussing from overtiredness (probably?) or just to count that as a sleep and carry on? Any suggestions?
