Ok... @Shaunie and @Sim i think you may have hit on somethibg here! He really doesn't sleep much in the day. Sometimes 2 x1.5hrs naps or a longer nap in(2-3hrs) and a short one. I find it hard to give him lots of opportunity to sleep around all of jen's activities, but will defiantly work on that!

Sounds like he's actually napping OK! At 9 months they should have between 2.5 & 4hrs each day. With Jonah & Isaac, if they had poor naps they were unsettled at night.

Emmet's naps are random. Sometimes 3 short naps & a very early bedtime, sometimes 2 1.5hr naps, sometime 1 1.5 & one 30min nap!

I have to Put Emmet to bed early because he is soooooo tired and we get meltdown. If you reach meltdown (J not you :wink: :lol: ), they are over-tired even if is is only 6pm. It's usuallyt between 6 & 6.30pm atm although one day last week it was 5.30pm and he had his usual night & work slightly later in the morning!

On average Emmet is asleep 6.30pm, wakes 10.30pm when I feed him, wakes 12.30am (no feed) then wakes around 4.30am (feed) and is always awake about 6.30am. He settles very quickly each time, with or without a feed. Some nights are better, some worse.

My feeling is that he isn't sleeping enough. He slept from 8am to 11ish then had about 20mins at 3.30pm. I think he needed longer. He gets lots of stimulation and suddenly crashes, but if course i can't always put him stright to sleep , it depends on the little lady!! He settles quite quickly sometimes but first stay settled. I think its a combo of things, just gotta ride it out! X
