My 5.5 month old since turning 5 months has been awake for 2-3 hours between naps. I put her down for a nap around the 1.5-2hour mark and then shes awake for 2.5ish sometimes 3 hours. So this leaves me with no time for a 3rd nap. Ive put her down for a nap at around 4 lately and she doesnt fall asleep till 5 then treats it as night sleep. So then with the 1-2 feeds shes up at 5ish. She is in a leap could it be that why she wants to stay awake for long time?? Cant remember what my first was like around this age. Thanks!
