What are the benefits of membership?
my 5 month old has been napping poorly lately. up until last week, she napped for an hour or hour and a half at a time. now it is only half an hour, like clockwork. what on earth could it be? she's starting to roll over but can only make it to her tummy, not back over to her back. could this be the reason her naps are so bad? thanks for any help/suggestions.
There may be several reasons her naps are so bad. She is getting older and more aware of her surroundings. Try evaluating her room during naptime. Is it dark enough? Is it quiet enough? Too quiet? Around this time, I usually had to pull the curtains or the shade for naps because the light stimulated them too much and they would wake up too fast.
If she is cranky as well, you may try talking to your pediatrician to rule out an illness, ear infection etc.
Hopefully this is a phase that she will outgrow. Good Luck
