My baby only catnaps, too, and i found that taking her outside after her bath woke her up enough so that i could put her to bed around 7pm. She's 10 months old now, sleeps all night in my bed and that's what suits us, so find something that works and stick to it, and ignore the health professionals who say that things shouldn't be done this way. try to stay away from control crying, this destroys babies, i did it with mine for 1 day and she started waking up through the night often and has taken til now to get back in to sleeping all night. Hang in there and you'll get it right. SHe's only a baby for such a short time. She'll be growing up fast soon and you'll think back and the sleepless nights are not one of the things that will be thought of straight away. She still catnaps, 10-15 minutes, 3 times a day, but what we do works for us and i'm sure that once you find what works for you two things will be so much easier. Good luck with it all.
