My 6 month old does not want to take naps anymore. She is happy most of the time when she's up but i'm worried she's not getting enough sleep.
Any symptoms ???: Most infants have a brain driven sleep center that will keep them remarkably refreshed on 5-10 minute cat naps if they don't take formal scheduled naps.
