    Hi Melina,

    It would be so hard to get anything done with these quick naps!

    There are potentially a few reasons the catnaps have continued. To work out which one it might be I just have a few questions.

    1. When you say she goes down pretty well, what exactly do you mean? What does her nap routine look like, and how do you settle her to sleep?
    2. Have you been able to adopt the wake, feed, play, and then sleep routine?
    3. Can you describe what her day typically looks like? Specifically, the time she wakes up in the morning, the times of her naps, and her bedtime?
    4. How does she sleep overnight? Does she go to bed and sleep through the night, or does she wake up for feeds and then fall back to sleep? If she wakes for feeds, what time does this usually happen, and does she find it easy to go back to sleep afterwards?
    5. Is she generally well, happy, and content during the day?
    6. When she naps during the day, where is she sleeping? What is the environment like—dark, quiet, white noise, or are there other kids/people in the house?

    Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer these questions.
