Also, a baby that young will often take short naps--maybe 45 minutes long--and either need to be soothed back to sleep or can get up for a short while (90 minutes) and then go back to sleep. My DD at that age was taking 5 short naps a day. That's a normal variation, though not very convenient for getting anything much done.

Anyway, a baby that age definitely needs 3 naps a day, not just 2.
DD nurses 45 minutes-1 hr after waking. Should I try putting her back down for a nap after she nurses? She usually nods off towards the end of nursing.
