Stays Awake only for a Short While
Dear Helen

My 3 1/2 months old son is only awake for one hour at a time between the naps. Is this normal or should he stay awake longer?

He starts whining and gets tired in case I do not settle him for a nap after an hour. During the morning hours he can easily sleep for 2-3 hours, and the rest of the day the naps are 1-2 hours long.

I guess that at his age he should stay awake a little longer?

Best regards
Lea
