4 Month Old Not Napping

D/d is almost 4 mos. She sleeps great at night (9-10 hrs) but naps very sporadically during the day, sometimes only sleeping 20-30 mins here and there. Should I be concerned? Again, it's great she sleeps well at night but I'm worried she's tired during the day. Is she too young to "cry it out?" Sometimes, when I put her to bed she will cry and I'll think she's hungry, only to put her on my br___t and she falls asleep. So, I know she's tired. Advice?

my dd is 4 1/2 mo and she does this too sometimes. i wouldn't be concerned, i think it's pretty normal. are you against giving her a pacifier? usually when my dd wakes up in the middle of the night she will fall right back to sleep w/ her paci.

UGH! My dd will be 4 months on the 2nd and she too has been nixing the daytime naps! She goes to bed around 9ish:wakes up anywhere from 2-4 for diaper change/eat and back to sleep. She'll wake up at 6am for the day. She takes one good nap (from 10am until 11:30 if lucky) then forget the rest of the day. She may sleep 15 mins here or there if you hold her. Then she gets very cranky in the evening! I personally don't like the cio. And she absolutely won't take a pacifier. Like you said, she'll fall asleep with the bottle (not b___stfeeding). Honestly, I'm not really concerned about it though. Im sorry...that wasn't good advice.

My son is 19 weeks and he has never been a napper. Hes sleeping well at night from 8:30-7:30 usually waking up once for a bottle. he has one nap in the morning for 20 mins, and a couple in the afternoon for 15mins or so. Thats it.. hes really cranky in the evening. When he was 3 months we were lucky to have him nap once during the day. Kinda makes it hard to get anything done around the place.. lol
