40 minutes

routine...i'm a fan of it. however, i'm not sure i really like jackson's new napping routine. for the past week or two, he's been taking 40 minute naps while in his crib. now, that's not necessarily a problem, except that he's not done sleeping after 40 minutes. in order to keep him asleep i have to hold him. i've tried everything i can think of to get him to sleep longer in his crib, but to no avail. i just can't figure out what the deal is...he sleeps in his crib at night for 5 to 7 hours, so why not during the day at nap times? what is a mommy to do to get her son to sleep for his whole nap in his crib?

The No Cry Sleep Solution book I just read said that an infant's sleep cycle is 45 minutes as opposed to an adult's which is 90. She said to sit outside their door and when you hear them starting to stir, jump in and quiet them down. It might take a few days, but that should help them learn to sleep longer. So she says: now, if only she'd come over to my house and sit outside Abel's door - now *that* would be helpful. :D

troy had a suggestion... i don't knot how you hold jackson when he's in your arms, but if you hold him up like on your shoulder, you may want to try putting him back to sleep on his tummy. that's why we first started sleeping him that way. also, i've heard the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Kid (or something like that) is good... maybe it would have suggestions.
