He constantly wakes after the 40 min sleep cycle and cannot put himself back to sleep

Hi Maree,
Firstly i must note that my son Jaeden is a great sleeper at night, although during the day he constantly wakes after the 40 min sleep cycle and cannot put himself back to sleep. why is it that he can do it during the night but not at day? He is very hard to re-settle after he wakes, and it means that i cannot get anthing done during the day. Is there any thing you can suggest that will help me to get him to sleep during the day? I also find that i cant do the Sleep/Feed/Play cycle, because he hasnt had a good sleep, he get tired so quickly after i feed him.
Please help?

Answer: Hi Verity, Some babies are just poor daytime sleepers but you could try our settling techniques to resettle him.It does seem he is still tired if you are feeding when he wakes and then he is going back to sleep again. Cheers, Maree
