dear Raveena ,ok ur baby is actually nappinh well . dont keep her awake in day inorder to make her sleep.at night. ur baby is trying to sleep earlier in evening so lets help her. set her bedtimes at 7 in evening its not early and she will sleep well. now if she wakes up try not.to get her out of her bed . slightly pat her back and let her sleep no matter how much she resist calmly pat her to sleep . let her be awake in her bed but after 2 day she will understand that mother wont let me play after 7 in evening. bored she will fall asleep . if she cries go to her nad pat her back lay her down in her bed donot take her outside the bedroom keep light off .as she sleeps more during night the day naps will get short . dont let her nap at all after 5.30 . and keep naps each of 1 hour max. ur baby has actually set a good pace of sleeping early in evening .
