I know this is boring but please can I have your babies sleep (day and night) pattern at around 8 months..? Or I guess between 7 and 10 months..?

8 months old.
Sleeps between 1 and 3 hours in the day. Random times depending what we're doing, whether we're out and about. If she has not had say 1.5 hours earlier in the day then she needs a 30 mins nap at about 4.30pm to get her through dinner.
Goes to bed some time between 6.30 and 7.30pm and sleeps till between 7 and 8.30am. Usually a couple of wake ups, sometimes none (a good week last week), occasionally as many as four or five.
That doesn't help you at all, does it? DD2 basically does different things all the time!

9 months old but been in this pattern for months now.

Wake up 6.30am
Nap 8am until 9.30am
Nap 12pm untilt1pm
Nap 4pm until 5pm
Bedtime 8pm (sleeps through apart from the occasional wriggle)

All timings approximate of course.

He has always liked an needed his sleep and the only nap he sometimes drops is the last one. This is usually only when he's with his childminder as I think there is too much to see and do sleep! when he does this bedtime is brought forward a bit.

My 8 mo has only recently been sticking to a regular pattern. She's up at 7am then sleeps from 10 till 11.30/12. She then has another half an hour to an hour around 5pm. She goes to bed at 8 and then is up for a couple of feeds and a couple of other moans during the night. Although the night before last she slept until 5am and I thought we might have been on to a good thing but she put me right last night!!

Another for your mix:
Two options:
Wakes before 0600, has a nap 9.30 for 20 mins max (I wake her)
Naps 1230-2.30/3.00
Knackered for bedtime milk by 1810 and in bed at 1840 latest as she can't last any longer.

If she wakes at 0700, she might skip that first nap but only just.
I like to ensure she has the big afternoon one as that's my break (have a kit-kat time) grin
