Re: Please help an anxious mom be okay with slow weight gain
Some babies are cat-nappers. Instead of two or three big naps of at least an hour apiece, the baby will get all his sleep in multiple short naps. There's nothing wrong with or abnormal about this pattern- it's just a little challenging for mom because she isn't going to geta big block of time during which she can get a nap herself or accomplish a task.
If you're concerned about weight gain, you might want to stop the swaddling. Swaddled babies sleep more soundly, and that can mean less night nursing.
