how can i get hannah to nap longer???

A few weeks ago she was taking 1-2 hr naps 3x a day. Now all of a sudden she is only taking 20-30 minutes 3-4x a day. On the days that she naps 30 mins, she gets hysterical around 6-7 pm. i run the fan and keep the tv on for background noise so i can do some housekeeping.

If she naps for an hour or longer she is fine! what can I do to help her nap better? she is sleeping better during the night. she generally naps in her swing which is in the dining area. thanks!

Drop her naps down to 2 naps. One morning, one afternoon. She'll sleep longer & be more rested then cat napping. I know it's easier said than done.

What time does she wake up? What time does she go to bed? What times are her naps usually?

Also 6-7pm is the witching hour for most babies. The time where they "destress" from their day.

wake up: 6am, she gets a bottle and usually sleeps until 730a. i have been trying to follow the healthy child book: 2 hrs up then nap. she usually gets cranky about 2 hrs after her last nap. she generally goes to bed between 7-8 at night. she will sleep until ablout 1-2 am and then is hungry so she gets another bottle and sleeps until about 6am.

she is a light sleeper and although i have the fan running in the backround and lullaby music playing, if i even make a peep in her room she gets startled! this is a recent occurance. i used to be able to vaccuum around her! :(

how would i only give her 2 naps? what if she falls asleep on her own in between the two naps? would that be okay?
