View Full Version : Healthy napping... how and when???

06-22-2005, 04:58 AM
DS is 11 weeks old, & I'm trying to incorporate a healthy nap routine into his daily routine... I just don't know how.
He's on a 3 hour bf'ing routine - 7am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm, and we give him 4 oz formula at 930pm, and then he sleeps until 2:30. He bf's then, and goes back to sleep until 7am.
Do I lay him [awake] in his crib for the last hour of each 3-hr cycle? [right now he only sleeps during the daytime if he's in the carrier or if I sleep with him on the bed]. If I lay him awake in there, what do I do if he's crying? How do I establish a healthy sleep daily routine?
I am at a total loss, and I just don't know who to ask about this! Please help!
