I feel like I've done pretty well thus far in teaching Briz to be a good sleeper. Right now, she goes from about 8 -8:30 p.m. to 7 - 7:30 a.m.
But I'm running into trouble when it comes to nap time. I have to be honest, I have had a hard time being too strict with her about sleeping, because sometimes I still have a hard time gauging if she is in pain or just being demanding. She has recently gotten into the habit of waking up every 45 minutes during her naps. She takes 3 naps a day, all of which are generally around 1 hour and a half to 2 hours. But now she will wake up screaming. I want to teach her to self soothe and to put herself back to sleep, but it doesn't seem to work. She just cries harder and harder (and I generally will let her cry anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes). Unless she needs to throw up, she will pretty much be fine once I put her pacifier back in. But again, I hate that I have to do that, and I want her to be able to go for the full 2 hours by herself. Any suggestions?
