She'll probably need two to four naps a day, and perhaps even more.

At 3 to 4 months of age, many babies begin to follow a more predictable pattern of daytime sleep.

At this stage, you shouldn't expect any sort of napping pattern. When your baby's 6 to 8 weeks old, she's likely to start consolidating her sleep – she'll sleep less often and for longer stretches at a time.This is a good time to start developing a nap schedule (see our tips, below).Do your best to give your baby a chance to nap at the same times each day.Short naps can range anywhere from 20 minutes to 45 minutes.While it is normal for newborns to catnap (as sleep at this age is erratic and unpredictable) over time we should start to see daysleep consolidate and nap patterns mature. When babies are nearing a nap transition (whether it be 4-3, 3-2, or 2-1) it is normal for their last nap of the day to be shorter.
