I'm not the best person to give advice as DS (6 months) is not sleeping through, but what does a little nap mean? Could he be overtired? Could you try and put him down for 2 naps during the day? What time does he wake up in the morning, he might need a shortish nap before the afternoon one?

Not very helpful, sorry, but sympathies.

I thought the same, maybe he needs more daytime sleep? 8.30pm is a fairly late bedtime too - how much sleep does he get overall?

My 12 month old still needs two naps a day, and 11-12 hours overnight.

I agree, I think at that age dd was having three hours in the day and 11/12 at night. She has always gone to bed at 7, but I have always found from about 4 she starts going down hill so is always more than ready for bed by seven. It could just be a bad habit and if you keep going in quietly and settling him then he will eventually stay asleep?

What do you give him for supper? You might want to avoid protein. In essence he needs to learn to self settle if there isn't a problem or a 'need' for mum.

When you say he wakes up what do you mean? Is he just awake or is he bellowing? What are you doing/what does he think he requires in order to go back to sleep?
