I have really decided that there are just some babies who don't sleep much! My oldest was that way. I thought I was doing something wrong; she slept for very short periods of time, and this is the kid who dropped her afternoon nap way before the age of 2. And guess what? Now SHE has a little one that also sleeps just short periods and at almot 6 months, is only taking a couple very short naps during the day. Payback maybe, I don't know! It is difficult when they are babies becuae you never get that 'long stretch' to rest, do house stuff or whatever. I used to have friends who would talk about their 3-yr-old taking a 2 hour afternoon nap and I would be "WHAT???!!!" My daughter wasn't a fussy baby, she just didn't sleep much; and didn't seem to require much sleep. She was my only one like that. I ended up hauling her around in her little seat so she could always be in the room I was in. I don't have any advice just wanted you to know that you are not alone. I agree though with whoever said that about as soon as you get her on some sort of sleep schedule, she will change it up a bit!!!! Good luck to you! And I love her name, BTW.
