when does he take naps and for how long?

naps. hmm. there's no short answer to that. he's not a very good sleeper, and he has basically no nap schedule yet. apparently that's ok for his age?

in general, in the morning (after 6:30am), he'll take a half an hour nap every hour or so, then gradually, the time between naps gets longer and longer until his last two naps (or last nap and bedtime at 7:30pm) are about 2 hours and 15 minutes apart... all the books say babies nap more than that, but that's all he'll do.

of course, it varies wildly from day to day. yesterday, he only took a 10-minute nap between 8:30 and noon, then a half an hour nap, then slept from 2:30 to 4pm.

and he's still nowhere near sleeping through the night. he usually sleeps in 3-hour chunks until about 5:30am, then he's up every hour at least. if not more often. is henry still sleeping 8-hour stretches? i hope so. it's terrible having a kid who won't sleep, the obsession with naptimes and bedtimes takes over your life... :)
