View Full Version : Help! My 11 week old has no nap schedule!

I am writing this while my DD sleeps on my lap. It has just occured to me that we have no nap schedule. She sleeps during the day, but it's never in her crib and not at a set time. She sleeps in the car seat while riding, while I am sitting on the couch holding her, in the Baby Bjorn while running errands. I can't believe it has taken me so long to realize I need to be putting her down for naps. Part of the problem is that she cries if I am not holding her. She is a wonderful night sleeper (consistently 7-10 hours!) We have a routine of bathing, changing, nursing then sleeping. What am I doing wrong during the day? How do I set up a sleep schedule and how do I manage to get her to sleep without holding her?
