She'll nap in a stroller or in the car otherwise, or in my arms while I nurse her, but as soon as I move she wakes up. At night I can get her to a sleepy state where I can put her down in the crib and she'll go to sleep, but I can't seem to get her there during the day. She sleeps 10-12ish hours at night, and only gets a 2 hour nap about 50% of the time.

I do miss how my oldest was. Wake at 8am, nap from 1-3, down at 8pm for the night. Not this one.
I guess some baby's just don't sleep a lot. I'm afraid to try side nursing because I'm always so tired and I'm afraid that I'll fall asleep and smush her. I'm a heavy sleeper and she's still tiny.

I'm hoping when the weather gets nicer I can get her to fall asleep by taking her out for a stroller ride. I would welcome the exercise and maybe she would be a little more content with some extra sleep.
