I actually think that napping well during the day helps with the nighttime sleep. I know it sounds backwards, but overtired babies have more adrenalin and so sleep worse at night. I'd really work on that daytime nap. Get outdoors before the nap and play vigorously and then wind things down.


I agree if babies are overtired they will cry and sometimes just forego drinking because they are so tired. I think it is ok just to let them sleep!
