Coming Soon: A New Series on Infant Sleep

We're getting out our magnifying glasses and studying night and day! By popular demand, we will start a new series of posts on the mysteries of infant sleep. We'll scour the latest research findings to address more of the specific questions that have come our way in the last few weeks. Stay tuned! In the meantime, we'll continue to answer your questions on other topics.


  1. Our almost 10-week old son used to take two long naps of 1-2 hours - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Lately, his "naps" are under 30 minutes, but he does sleep longer at night (3-4 hour stretches). However, because he no longer takes long naps, he's over-tired by 5 p.m. (He starts the day at 6 a.m.)

    Any suggestions for re-starting longer daytime naps while maintaining long stretches of nighttime sleep?
