She will be 7 months soon, and she is downright miserable during the day. I had heard soooo many times from different people NEVER to bring her to bed with us but... our situation demanded it (we didnt have a crib or bassinet for a while when we visited family, and we werent gonna buy something just to use for a month). And honestly, I enjoyed it when we had a queen size bed (now we have a double). But she used to nap on her own just fine. Now however, it seems as if she WILL NOT nap unless I am holding her, or I nurse her laying down and sneek away, but even that will only last for about a 1/2 hour. She will get a total of 40 mins naptime for the whole day, sometimes even less :( I'm going nuts! If I nurse her and put her in the crib once she is right asleep (wont even stir when I stand), and she doesnt mysteriously wake as soon as her body touches the mattress (happens ALOT) then she will sleep for about 5 mins. I've tried letting her cry while I stand there and sooth her, or even leave the room for a bit, but she will SCREAM for like 2 hrs or more, then get about 10 mins sleep for the trouble! I know each child is different, thus there is no specific no-fail strategy, but I would REALLY appreciate any advice (no rude "you shouldnt have done that"'s please), especially from parents who've had this kind of experience... thanks!
