    @Diana I really need to know your WHOLE situation to give specific advice. That is why I offer (affordable) sleep consulting services (https://www.babysleepsite.com/services) to help people with their specific issues. I don’t like to give blanket advice because I don’t know all the details, particularly the age of the baby. I don’t want to give haphazard advice. That would be very irresponsible of me. I LOVE helping people and try to make my services as affordable as possible for this reason. I also talk about naps in my e-Book (https://www.babysleepsite.com/ebook) and I am currently writing a “just naps” e-Book, as well, but it’s not complete yet. Good luck!

    I guess, the problem then is, how can I get him to continue sleeping? Like I mentioned earlier, he screams/cry everytime he wakes from a nap. Should I continue to let him cry by himself? and how long should I wait to go pick him up?

    I tried to pick him up and rock him back to sleep in the past but he wont do it!! He is 10 months old and has always been a horrible napper. He is fussy too, poor little guy is tired but refuses to sleep. HELP!

    I have now placed him on a nap schedule 10am & 2pm regardless of the time he wakes in the morning (6:30-7:15am) and sleeps at 7:30pm every night. He does not nap past 30 min. I have tried your suggestions of giving him more frequent naps but still naps for 30 min.

    My question is, should I just accept that he naps for an hour total a day? He wakes up crying from his naps everytime, should I let him cry it out? Will that help him go back to sleep? I have tried letting him cry for 13 min. today but he did not go back to sleep. He was just really fussy afterwards.

      @Diana Lengthening naps can be tricky. I would need more information, but usually you do need to allow them some time to try to go back to sleep, but it depends on the age of the child, too. Crying when they wake up is usually a sign that they are not done sleeping.

    Hi Nicole, thank you for the informative articles and website. My 9 1/2 month son won’t nap longer than 30 minutes at a time. He wakes up between 6:30-7:30am, naps usually at 10 and 2 (depending on what time he wakes up for the day). He wakes up several times during the night for his pacifier. PLease help! He’s been this way for many months. We are so exhausted. We would appreciate any advice.
