      Hi Linda,
      Thank you for your comment! I’m so sorry to hear you’re having such trouble with your daughter’s sleep. We’d love to help. The first thing would be to check that the schedule you’re using is age-appropriate. You didn’t mention her age, but we have a lot of schedules you can use here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/baby-sleep-feeding-schedules/

      Then, the most common reason for a baby to have trouble falling asleep is a sleep association. We have more information on what that is and how to work with them here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/sleep-training/sleep-association/

      If you continue to have trouble, I’d really encourage to write to us with your baby’s age at contact@babysleepsite.com. If we know her age and a little more about what’s going on, we’d be happy to offer some more resources for you, to help improve your family’s sleep. Best of luck!

    @ Mary —

    Thanks so much for replying! I would say that since you’re VERY close to the 2-to-1 nap transition (most kiddos make this around 15-18 months), it may be best to keep doing what you’re doing. I think most parents find two naps tough, since it eats up your morning AND your afternoon, but once she’s down to just one nap, you will likely be able to time it so that it doesn’t coincide with school pick-up or afternoon activities.

    Hope that helps, Mary! Thanks for commenting. 🙂

    She’s just coming up to 15 months now but it’s been a problem since she started to become more aware of the world around her – it seems it’s far to exciting out there to sleep!! It doesn’t help that the route to preschool for her big sister consists of sheep, cows, ducks and lots of people walking their dogs! She doesn’t even sleep in the car any more. So we avoid going out as much as possible around nap times. I’m feeling pretty housebound at the moment. Even at home though she’s such a light sleeper that the slightest noise can disturb her. She doesn’t sleep too well overnight either, but although she wakes frequently she is happy so not sure what to do to help her sleep better.

    But what about when your baby won’t sleep anywhere but the crib!! My baby won’t sleep while we’re out 🙁

      @ Mary – oh, many – that’s definitely a problem, too! How old is your baby? And how often are you out and about? Is this just a “sometimes” kind of problem, or is this something that you face daily?
