Baby won’t nap

My daughter (6.5 weeks old) won’t nap much at all during the day. However, she sleeps from about 830-3am, 330-6, 630-930am consistently every night. She seems to be overtired during day, but we have no sleep issues during night. We try to put her down in bassinet downstairs, and get best naps from her in car rides or on walks. Should we start having her nap in her crib where she sleeps at night?


  • Look up @thepeacfulsleeper on Instagram! She was amazing with my two kids!

    @Devon It actually sounds like she is doing great! Its amazing that she is giving you that long stretch at night already. Its really normal for the naps to be all over the place and inconsistent. Those naps might take time to consolidate. You can try to have her nap in the crib where she sleeps at night, but I'm not sure that will be your answer just yet. I would keep doing what you are doing and try to experiment with the crib upstairs and the bassinet downstairs.
