My DD is 19 weeks and has always had lovely long naps at lunch time 1 -2 hours. Recently she has slept less and fights off sleeping! Does your LO have lunch time naps, how do you encourage this? At the moment I am putting her in her pushchair in front of washing machine, which works perfectly but worried this is becoming a bad habit!! Any tips anyone?
PS Washing machine just finished and LO is awake instantly!!!

sorry mylittlebubble, I don't have any tips, just thinking its a pity the spin cycle on my washing machine is so loud or I would try putting my dd in front of it for naps!

Could it be hunger? Know there is a really big nasty growth spurt around 4mnths - often mistaken for the need to ween. Maybe try some extra milk before you put her down?

Also, do you put her down at the same time every day? I know my DS started to go a bit longer between naps around then and found putting him down too early shortened his lunch-time sleep.

Good Luck
