View Full Version : How to get my 3 1/2 month old to nap

Hello everyone. I'm new to this board and need help. My daughter is 3 1/2 months old and I can't seem to get her to take naps. The only time she naps is if she is in the stroller (when we are out on a walk) I put her down when she is drowsy and she fusses and cries and won't go off to sleep. I know she is tired and needs a nap; I can tell by her eyes and behavior. She will sleep in my arms of course but this is not good for the long term. I breastfeed her and my husband gives her a bottle at night before bed. She sleeps pretty well through the night, it's the daytime naps I have problems with. Is she too young to be put on a schedule?

Any suggestions? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
